The End of Education Is the Dawn of Learning

Stephen Heppell, one of the world’s leading education reformers, talks about education.

Schools are full of things that our descendants will look back on and laugh out loud at: ringing a bell and expecting 1,000 teenagers to be simultaneously hungry; putting 25 children together in a box because they were born between two Septembers; assessing children based on how well they work alone; and so on.

I found the youtube video “Building Connections Conference evaluations" unnerving at first but listening to their comments was quite insightful.
