Joe Bower teaches in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. And he is on a personal mission.
His blog For the Love of Learning takes on the traditional model of education and challenges its assumptions and practices.
His latest post is a passionate call for action for educators everywhere. It opens with Ken Robinson’s latest TEDTalk (see below). It’s a follow up to his 2006 call for creativity and personalized education.
Robinson makes the case that we don’t need reform in education we need a revolution. That’s the launch for Joe’s urgent appeal for radical change. Is Joe paying attention to what matters most?
Does he have it right? Take a look and see what you think.
And if he is right, what must we hold on to and not change? What do we need to stop doing or radically change? And what must we begin to do?
What is the baby? What is the bathwater? What is the needed fresh water?
