Ken Robinson TED Talk
Take notes on his presentation style, his story telling and his passionate commitment.
Which of his teaching attributes do you already have and which ones would you like to develop further?
I have most of these attribute, however, at this current moment they are not fully developed. I want I develop a passion for something where I am able to speak to a crowd without need queue cards or a speech.
I want so feel comfortable speaking in front of crowd and learn to speak clearer so that I am understood the first time. Once I am able to public speak, I would like to learn to interact and relate with out audience and be able to transport them to the setting of my story when telling it. These attribute, I think these are important attribute of teaching and need to be master by anyone in the teaching/education profession.
Write three goals in your journal about attributes you would like to develop further. E.g. I aim to develop my use of facial expressions that match the message I am conveying.
Note any difference between his alternative vision of schooling and the school you attended.
He thought that education should be about allowing a child to express them self, no matter what their talents. When I went to school I teachers and even my friend were very academic focused and thought that the most important subjects were your math, sciences and English ones. In lesson time, more work time was allocated to them as well. As a result of this it was not until high school, where I could choose some of my own subjects, I found some of my talents.
From watching this video I was able take valuable notes on public speaking , which will help when trying to engage and relate to students in the classroom setting. These attribute for public speaking or in another term teaching would be required by any teacher. Once master you may be considered a expert etcher that possess expert qualities. It was always clear that as teacher we need to allow the child to express their creative side and nurture their talents rather than squander them. Unlike in previous time, the focus should not be on academic subjects and equal time should be spent on subjects like the arts to allow students to express them delve in a creative way.
