I read an interesting article recently, by Sean Hampton-Cole, which you can also see by clicking on the image below. In it the writer discusses the current limitations of the traditional educational approach and offers some suggestions as to how we might improve the way our students develop.
We are ‘trapped’ to a large degree into doing what we have always done, in classrooms that someone two generations older would still recognise and with the same narrow goals of passing exams.
Is that really all we can do? Are the mainly Victorian values still relevant today? Please read the article and consider which of the points made you feel are a) most important, b) most possible to implement and c) not useful in your opinion.
