Changing Education Paradigms

Educational Paradigms

Another great RSA talk by Sir Ken Robinson animated, it’s well worth the 11 minutes to watch. It’s hardly a secret how poor the education system really is and how many it fails.

I should note the intro video on his website has perhaps one of the greatest quotes I’ve heard in a while: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original”.

The Secret Powers Of Time

Secret Power Of Time

Professor Philip Zimbardo on how your perspective of time impacts pretty much everything in life and how it’s fundamentally changing thanks to technology. There’s been a lot of talk about this lately.

I guess this is pretty much the idea behind his book The Time Paradox. I guess I should add that to my list of books to read if I can ironically ever find the time.
