Shift Happens

Here are a couple of videos that I've watched lately. The first is designed to get you thinking about globalization and how we are preparing our kids for the changes to come. It's about 8 minutes long.

This second video is about 20 minutes long, but makes a very good point and is very entertaining. Sir Ken Robinson at TED in 2006 discusses the importance of cultivating creativity in our kids rather than educating it out of them.

It's long, but it's worth it.

I thought Ken's video was fun, actually. I think he was hilarious...but still gets a serious point across.

I choose to take the last sentence as a compliment, since being from an anonymous poster I have no context in which to measure the sarcasm, unless it's Jake, then I know exactly what he means. :)

It could be someone obsessed with ebay, per the A+++++++++++, however, I don't see any @ signs or the word L@@K. I almost want to guess Mark, but the grammar doesn't seem quite bad enough.

Anyway, I added some more pics to hopefully balance out all the text, all CC-BY licensed from Flickr, and all at least somewhat related to the post they go with.
