Sir Ken Robinson speaks about schools killing creativity and how we as educators of future generations should work to enhance students natural talents. – As a speaker Ken Robinson is inspiring and he offers many valuable ideas to educators. He offers suggestions about the integration of ICT’s in the classroom and how to use technology to embrace learning. I viewed one of his speeches in another course and he is definitely someone to admire.
As for the use of ICT skills, I am often getting my children to teach me how to do things and they find it so easy! – We teach prep children how to use computers and they quickly learn. I have watched the use of computers in schools grow as new forms of technology are acquired. Because of the use of ICT’s in the classroom though I think it’s important that we as future educators value them and yet strive to ensure that we do not kill creativity and still encourage children to follow their creative minds. The worry I see in everyday life is the number of young children that know how to use an ipod or mobile phone. I think in this instance we see parents killing creativity and putting a halt to imagination. One of the key learning concepts that I would like to embrace is how to use computer technology to embrace creativity?
