is reforming

0:18

public education for two reasons for it

0:21

the first one is economic people trying to fit workout

0:24

how do we

0:26

educating

0:27

our children to take their place in the economy is the twenty first century how

0:30

do we do that

0:31

in the recount anticipate what economy will look like at the end of next week

0:37

as the recent turmoil

0:40

how do we do that

0:42

the second-lowest cultural

0:44

every country on earth on earth is trying to figure out how do we

0:48

educate our children so they have a sense of cultural identity and

0:51

so that we can pass on the cultural genes of art

0:54

communities

0:54

while being part of the process of globalization happy

0:58

square that circle

1:00

the problem is that trying

1:01

to meet the future

1:03

by doing what they did in the past

1:05

and on the way that alienating

1:07

millions of kids who don't see any

1:09

purpose in going to school

1:11

when we went to school

1:12

we work and there was story which is if you work hard and did well

1:16

got a college degree you would have a job

1:18

optics don't believe that

1:20

and the right not to bother

1:21

you're better having particularly the not it's not a guarantee anymore

1:25

a particular not if the with

1:28

marginalize has mostly things that you think are important about yourself

1:31

but some people say we have to raise families if this is a breakthrough

1:35

button ready to get such we should

1:38

why would you like them

1:39

internet

1:40

hyped haven't come across an argument that the safety of learning

1:44

but raisin and of course we should racing

1:46

the problem is that the current system education was designed

1:51

and conceived

1:53

unstructured four different

1:56

it was conceived

1:58

in the intellectual

1:59

culture

2:00

of the enlightenment

2:02

and in the economic circumstances of the industrial revolution

2:06

before the myth of the nineteen century there were no systems of public

2:09

education

2:10

not really a minute ago did you get to my jesuit sooner if if you have the

2:13

money

2:14

but public education payed for from taxation

2:18

compulsory to everybody in three at the point of delivery i was a revolutionary

2:21

idea

2:22

and many people

2:24

objected to they said that not possible

2:27

for many street kids working class georgia benefits from public education

2:31

very capable of learning to read and write and why we spending time on this

2:35

has also built into the whole series of

2:37

uh... assumptions about social structuring capacity it was driven by an

2:41

economic impact of all the time

2:44

but running right through it

2:46

was an intellectual

2:48

model of the mind

2:50

which was essentially unlike mindy of intelligence

2:53

the real intelligence consists in the scholastic assessment opera deductive

2:56

reasoning

2:57

on the knowledge of the classics originate

2:59

what we come to think of as academic

3:02

ability

3:02

and this is deep in the gene

3:04

a public education at the ready to types of people academic a non-factor demic

3:09

small people are not smart people

3:11

on the contents of that is that many brilliant people think they're not

3:16

because they've been judged against this particular view of the month

3:19

so we have a tenth of us

3:21

economic an intellectual

3:23

and mike

3:25

this model

3:26

has caused chaos

3:28

and many people's minds it's been great for some dripping people benefited

3:32

wonderfully from it

3:33

but most people

3:36

instead accepted this

3:37

this is the modern academic and its as myspace

3:40

at its best fictitious

3:42

this is the play golf eighty h d

3:47

this is a map of the concerns that lady h_d_

3:50

in america or prescriptions

3:52

for a p_h_d_

3:54

don't mistake me i don't mean to say

3:56

there was no such thing

3:57

as attention deficit disorder

3:59

i'm not qualified to serve the risk such a thing

4:02

i know the great majority of psychologists and children pediatrician

4:05

think there is such a thing

4:07

but still amount of disco debate

4:11

but i do know for a fact

4:13

is it's not an epidemic

4:15

these kids are being medicated

4:18

as routinely as we have apostles taken it

4:21

and on the same

4:22

whimsical bases and for the same reason medical

4:27

all children are living in the most intense is stimulating period in the

4:30

history of the s

4:33

that being besieged with information

4:36

upholstered tension

4:38

every platform computers

4:40

from my iphone some advertise golden's from hollister television channels

4:45

and what penalizing them out to getting distracted

4:48

from what

4:50

boring stuff

4:52

at school

4:53

for the most part

4:54

it seems we cannot occurrences totally but this is a dat has risen in parallel

4:58

with the growth of standardized testing

5:01

these kids are being given birth to end and at all in all manner of things

5:05

often quite then just rugs

5:07

to get them focused in combat

5:10

but according to this

5:11

attention deficit order

5:13

increases as you travel east across the country

5:16

people start losing interest in oklahoma

5:20

here

5:24

they can hardly think straight in arkansas the completely

5:31

him amber a separate reasons for that i believe the

5:36

it's a fictitious

5:37

epidemic

5:38

if you think it's the arts

5:41

another instance exclusivity arts i think it's also true science

5:45

elements for them

5:46

i said i walked into the because they all of the victims of this mentality

5:49

currently

5:52

the alts

5:54

especially address

5:55

beyond all

5:57

aesthetic

5:58

experience

5:59

anesthetic expenses one which or senses

6:02

all operating that peak

6:03

when your present in the current moment

6:05

when your resonating with the excitement of this thing that your

6:09

experiencing

6:10

when you are fully alive

6:12

and anesthetic is when you shake your senses off

6:16

and get yourself to what's happening

6:19

and a lot of these drugs

6:22

we're getting octial mtr education

6:24

bike and it's surprising them

6:26

and i think we should begin exact opposite we shouldn't be previously we

6:28

should be waking them up

6:30

to what they have inside themselves

6:32

but the model analysis

6:34

it's finally we have

6:35

that's just a magician that is modeled

6:39

the interests and extremism

6:42

and in the image of it

6:43

i could be further examples

6:46

stores also pretty much organize contract reminds upbringing that

6:49

walls separatism it is

6:51

specialized in two separate subjects

6:53

uh... we selected children by batches

6:57

you know we put them through the system by age group

7:00

why do we do that

7:01

no why is that this assumption

7:03

that the most important thing kids have in common is helpful dale

7:07

you know it's like the most important about was that they could manufacture

7:12

well i know kids were much better than other kids in the same age in different

7:15

disciplines

7:16

or different times the day

7:18

all bets in smaller groups in the mountains

7:20

orton basil to be alone

7:22

if you're interested in modern london you don't starkness production line

7:25

mentality

7:27

it's essentially bob conformity in increasing its about that as you look at

7:30

this time last testing and

7:32

standardized curricula

7:33

and it's about time two thousand shin

7:35

i believe we're going to help the situation

7:38

that's what i mean about changing the paradigm

7:40

there's a great said even recently of divergent thinking

7:44

to discover the answer divergent thinking this is the same thing

7:48

as creativity

7:49

i define prejudiced if the process of having a ritual ideas that have fun

7:55

divergent thinking isn't a synonym

7:57

but its fate

7:58

and essential

8:00

capacity to creativity

8:02

it's the ability to see lots of possible answers

8:05

took action

8:06

what's a possibly interpreting the question

8:09

to think

8:10

whatever devoted public all actually

8:12

to think not just in loophole

8:15

converge in place

8:17

two-seat multiple answers not one

8:19

so i mean a test of this i mean one kind of product sample of the people might be

8:23

asked to say

8:24

how many uses can you think all four paper clip

8:28

part of routine questions

8:29

most of my complete ten or fifteen

8:32

people go to this might come with two hundred

8:34

and they do that by saying whoa put the paper clip between the foot tall in the

8:37

night of the film about

8:39

and i'd like to have to be a paper clip as we know jim none

8:43

now the test is like a them to fifteen hundred people it's been a book called

8:47

breakpoints beyond

8:49

and on the critical of the test if you scored above a certain level

8:53

you'd be considered to be a genius of divergent thinking

8:57

so my question to his walk

8:59

percentage of

9:00

the people tested of the fifteen hundred

9:03

saudi genius level for divergent thinking

9:06

i need to one more thing about them

9:08

these work kindergarten children

9:12

what percentage of genius apple

9:16

making a bet

9:17

ninety percent

9:18

now the thing about this wasn't so long to juvenile study

9:21

so they've been test at the same children

9:24

five years later

9:26

ages eight to ten what you think

9:29

they retested system again

9:31

five years later ages

9:34

thirteen to fifteen

9:35

defensive ten different

9:37

here

9:41

his tells an interesting story

9:43

because you can imagine a going away

9:46

you start off not being very good but you get better to get older

9:50

but the shows two things one is we all have this capacity

9:54

and to it mostly deteriorates

9:57

how often this happens these kids as the grown-up

10:01

but one of the most important things onto mine convinces the buy now they've

10:04

become educated

10:06

they know the spent ten years of school being told as one insights at the back

10:10

and don't look

10:13

fondled copy

10:14

because that's cheating

10:16

then outside schools that's called collaboration

10:21

this is an because teachers want it this way

10:23

it just because it happens that way

10:26

it's because it's been the gene pool of education

10:30

after think differently about him capacity

10:32

back to get over disposed conception of of academic non-academic

10:38

theoretical

10:39

vacation or

10:40

and see if what it is then

10:45

second after recognize that most great learning happens in groups collaboration

10:48

is the stuff of growth

10:50

if you've got a nice people in separate them in judge them separately

10:56

former kind of disjunction between them and then that to learning environment

11:00

of flatly

11:00

it's crucial it about the culture

11:03

of our institutions the habits of the institution

11:05

and the habitats

11:06

that they occupy
