  • Suli Breaks - Why I Hate School But Love Education Official Spoken Word Video


    The Latest Spoken Word Video from Suli Breaks.

    As the cyclical and seemingly never ending debate about education rages on, the topic - somewhat ironically, often poses more questions than it provides answers.

    But what is the value of mainstream schooling? Why is it that some of the most high profile and successful figures within the Western world openly admit to never having completed any form of higher learning?

    Paying homage to Jefferson Bethke's Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus, a piece that received 22 million views in the space of a week, I address a number of these issues in my offering Why I Hate School, but Love Education.

    With scores of school leavers wanting to further their education with no guarantee of their dream job at the end of it, we should ask ourselves whether qualifications still hold the same value now as they did in previous years?

    Does success in the school system correlate to success in life? Or is the school system simply geared towards fact retention and regurgitation?

    What is true education?

    This Will Revolutionize Education


    Many technologies have promised to revolutionize education, but so far none has. With that in mind, what could revolutionize education?
    These ideas have been percolating since I wrote my PhD in physics education:
    I have also discussed this topic with CGP Grey, whose view of the future of education differs significantly from mine:

    I think it is instructive that each new technology has appeared to be so transformative. You can imagine, for example, that motion pictures must have seemed like a revolutionary learning technology. After all they did revolutionize entertainment, yet failed to make significant inroads into the classroom. TV and video seem like a cheaper, scaled back film, but they too failed to live up to expectations. Now there is a glut of information and video on the internet so should we expect it to revolutionize education?

    My view is that it won't, for two reasons: 1. Technology is not inherently superior, animations over static graphics, videoed presentations over live lectures etc. and 2. Learning is inherently a social activity, motivated and encouraged by interactions with others.

    Toxic culture of education: Joshua Katz at TEDxUniversityofAkron


    Joshua Katz is a high school math teacher in Orange County, FL.

    Joshua's Talk:
    In the mid 1800's, Horace Mann captured the potential impact of education on society. We have yet to realize the potential he saw, and in fact, we are missing the mark by a wider and wider margin. We have created a Toxic Culture of Education in our country that is damaging students, impacting our economy, and threatening our future. Since the passage of No Child Left Behind, we have embraced a culture of high stakes testing and are perpetuating a false sense of failure in our schools. We have ignored research and data on effective policy making practices in order to serve the interest of private industries that have monetized our students. The impact is being felt in communities, on college campuses, and in our economy. The solution lies in a common sense approach to student development, curriculum choice, career exploration, and relevant data analysis. This talk will present a vision of an education system that allows us to embrace our full potential if we only had the courage to ask Why Not?

  • The Best Equity in Education is Personalization | Ken Grover | TEDxSaltLakeCity


    Sir Ken Robinson said schools are killing children's creativity. High school principal Ken Grover agrees, so much in fact, that he decided to let his students do virtually whatever they want, when they want, how they want. Listen to Ken explain why he has found that personalized education is the only way to achieve equity for all students.

    Ken first became extremely passionate about changing the learning environments of when he encountered a particular student whose future was looking grim. It became clear that he needed to improve student’s high school experience -- it was a moral imperative. As such he created a comprehensive and fully reimagined educational experience for 21st century high school students. This personalized education model utilizes the power and scalability of technology to customize education where students through multiple measures -- both cognitive and non-cognitive -- have shown educational improvement.

    Ken believes that it is incumbent upon us to recognize now the opportunities to impact and influence change for our children. This opportunity is only available for us to embrace if we become the catalyst for change, if not the change will not occur.

  • Education For Whom and For What?


    Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, Education: For Whom and For What? featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session.

    Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

  • Forget university? 4 steps to design your own education | Till H. Groß | TEDxKlagenfurt


    This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. How important is your education to you? Have you ever thought about designing your own education? Till H. Groß is a remarkable young man with a passion for psychology. He took his education in his own hands...with mind blowing success.

    As soon as Till finished High-School he took his education in his own hands. After reading the whole psychology section of the small town library in his city, he set out to personally meet the authors of the books that thrilled him. In 2011, he started to consciously seek out the best psychologists, therapists and coaches all over Europe in order to learn from them. He visited them at home, attended their workshops and engaged in long email conversation asking numerous questions. His teachers were the founders of whole psychotherapy schools, masters in their field and some of the best paid coaches in Europe. Having the best teachers possible sped up Till’s learning curve immensely and enabled him to give talks throughout Germany at the age of 19, hold a guest lecture at the University of Vienna at age 20, conduct his own seminars, found a startup, and work as a coach at the age of 21.

  • British Council-Uganda Education Partnership Pact


    British government is credited for being instrumental in the field of education particularly in low developed countries like Uganda.
    To further the education partnership with Uganda, the British council is to invest more money in the education sector in areas of science and sports.
    While signing the three year MoU on behalf of government the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Science Technology and Sports Rose Nassali Lukwago, said the move will see pupils attending universal education access better education facilities.
    Nassali says there is need to deepen the skilling of learners if their potential is to be fully tapped, making them eligible for the competitive and dynamic world.
    While signing on the document the Country Director of the British Council Peter Brown said the investment in education emanates from the good working relations with Uganda.
    Peter Brown expressed optimism that with the new arrangement, some of the challenges affecting the sector like the inadequate facilities will be dealt with in order to improve the quality of the education sector.
    The teachers will also be equipped with better teaching skills compatible with the big number of learners they are confronted with in universal educations schools.

  • Higher education is not about getting a job | Fred DAgostino | TEDxUQ


    Many people think the point of higher education is economic: graduates get better paying jobs and the economy gets the knowledge-workers it needs. But, there is another story. There is a role for higher education in skilling-up citizens so they can play an active and effective role in a democratic society. Hear from political philosopher, Professor Fred D'Agostino as he shares numerous examples of this alternative story.

    Fred D'Agostino is Professor of Humanities at The University of Queensland and was Executive Dean of Arts and Associate Dean of Arts (Academic) during his ten-year stint at UQ. He is a philosopher, author of four books, sometime editor of the journals Australasian Journal of Philosophy and Politics, and Philosophy and Economics. He co-edited the recent Routledge Companion to Political and Social Philosophy. A member of the UQ Senate for four years, he is interested in the purposes and processes of higher education. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities and has held Australian Research Council and Australian Learning and Teaching Council grants. His next big project is on the disciplines (e.g. History, Sociology) and how they work.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
