One of my favorite people to follow in the educational world is Ken Robinson. He is a very intelligent and funny individual who shares meaningful insights about education with the world. I thought I’d share a couple of his videos with you to help give you a different way of thinking about public education, which may help you embrace homeschooling your child as a unique individual. Both are entertaining videos to watch, and I find the second one particularly captivating.
I found this first video as I was researching Multiple Intelligence theory. In this video, Ken talks about why we need to embrace multiple intelligence theory and how we need to value varied intelligences in our children. The beginning seems like it might be just a funny talk, off-topic, but at the two minute mark of the video, Ken begins talking about how his stories relate to creativity and intelligence. The initial stories are funny too, so it is worth listening to the whole video. It WILL make you think more clearly about valuing the skills and intelligences your child exhibits!
