037 – The Cultural Paradigm

  1. Watch the 10 min video on the arts within education.
  2. After watching, discuss stereotypical ideas of how creative learning happens in performing arts. Do schools kill creativity?  

 

Note: Notions of social bias can be explored here, as well as stereotypes in education, performance, in the arts, etc.

This is a great activity for collective research. Example: The Cultural Paradigm – a Ted Talk by Sir Ken Robinson available on Youtube and on Ted.com (https://www.ted.com/talks/sir_ken_robinson_changing_education_paradigms). In this talk from RSA Animate, Sir Ken Robinson lays out the link between 3 troubling trends: rising school drop-out rates, schools’ dwindling stake in the arts, and ADHD. An important, timely talk for students, parents and teachers.
