Education & Innovation

I just received a comment on my previous post that recommended Sir Ken Robinsoon’s 2010 TED talk on education because he also mentioned the education as manufacturing-model.  He says this:

So I think we have to change metaphors. We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process, it’s an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development; all you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.
