Two talks about learning

by Volker Weber

I am currently thinking about teaching and learning and I found these two talks very inspiring:


Mitra ist klasse. War auch beim DLD Anfang des Jahres hier in München...

No mentioning of the fabulous TED conference without a reference to Sir Ken Robinson:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. "Gillian isn't sick, she is a dancer. Take her to a dance school."

@ Dirk: Hilarious and true. Great link! I shared it with some extraordinary people in education I know. I know they´ll appreciate it.

@Dirk, I so love that talk - as home-educators my wife and I tend to subscribe to his way of thinking. Sad that it that option is illegal in Germany as far as I am aware...

Gillian isn't sick, she is a dancer.

Sent a shiver down my spine. A brilliant speaker.

yes, that was the line that caught me most, too. He has a way of changing fast between hilarious and very deep comments.

@stuart: yes, you can't home-educate children here. I didn't know you could in the UK.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
