  3. 3. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } …kids that see no purpose in going to school are alienated… Systems of education taught us that if you worked hard in school and earned a degree you would get a job. { this is no longer a guarantee }
  4. 4. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } …impressed into the enlightenment view of intelligence was an arbitrary standard of what types of knowledge were more or less valuable, which distinguished the academic from the non-academic… The current system was designed for and conceived in a different age { Enlightenment / Industrial Revolution }
  5. 5. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } …people that are intelligent think that they are not because they don’t match the existing standards of intelligence… Robinson argues that this model of education that implies division is heavily flawed { and furthermore causes chaos }

  8. 8. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } … the arts especially address the idea of aesthetic experience where your senses are operating at their highest peak, but anesthetics (like many drugs used to treat ADHD) have the opposite effect and deaden the mind to what is going on… The diagnosis of ADHD has risen with the growth of standardized testing { we should look to the Arts for guidance }
  9. 9. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } … with ringing bells, specialized building, designated areas, and the bunching of children by age regardless of individual skill or needs… Education is modeled on the interests of industrialization and in the image of it{ the school system itself operates like a factory }
  10. 10. { Tess Jay – Changing the Education Paradigm } … going against conformity and standardization by promoting divergent thinking rather than convergent or linear thought is the way to change the paradigm… If you want to change the model of education, you can’t continue with the production mentality { standardization is the wrong route to take }
  11. 11. Thank you, the end http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_changi ng_education_paradigms. Changing the Education Paradigm requires thinking differently about human capacity { we need to get over the myth of valued knowledge and revamp the system accordingly }
