Another talk that every teacher, educator or parent shouldn’t miss!

This is a new, wonderfully inspiring talk by Sir Ken Robinson, in which he outlines three very fundamental drivers to the flourishing of human life and compares them to what is happening in education. We do believe, that even though during this talk, he is referring to America and the education system over there, there are many parallels to what we see happening in Malta. In particular we refer to the “de-professionalisation of teachers” issue as we concur with Sir Ken Robinson, that teaching in essence is a creative profession – one which drives, stimulates, and engages learning. If teachers, keep on being driven by tests, then their autonomy over ways in which they can stimulate learning, is stifled – what we are seeing today are the results of such a repression in creativity and the profession.
