About Thinks

Sometimes good thinks happen and sometimes bad thinks happen. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two.

Some thinks need immediate action and some thinks may remain as thinks forever. Thinks can be angry and heated. Thinks can be joyful. Thinks should never be cold.

These thinks are linked to many other wonderful thinks and I like to attribute these.

These thinks do not necessary reflect those thinks of my employer.

Think long, think on.

Watch The New School - 30 Minutes Well Spent



This has many of the ideas that we have already negotiated with the famous RSA animate of Sir Ken.

I enjoyed the discussion regarding creativity being integrated into what we are already doing rather than having a separate 'creativity hour'.  Get creative with Maths and Literacy!

"Creativity is the process of having original ideas" Sir Ken Robinson

 I also enjoyed the sensible stance in relation to standards - using them as a diagnostic tool rather than the purpose of education.

And of course making changes to rectify the problem that:
The current education system works for the benefit of the providers and not the consumers - Joel Klein

  1. We have to remember that Klein is Murdoch stooge tasked with pushing his corporate fingers into the educational technology spend up pie.

  2. I know, it's disturbing. I caught myself nodding along to Murdoch and something he was saying about education about a month before the latest scandal. Felt so dirty ;)
