Opening Minds

(The RSA Opening Minds project)

One of the things I feel quite strongly about in terms of education, is that it should be more skills-based rather than fact-based and that children should be given more responsibility for their own learning.

I was quite impressed to hear about this therefore, especially where it's used in breaking down the traditional subject divides and, at least according to the RSA's own reports, seems to be being fairly successful in terms of motivating students.

I would be fascinated to see how the huge team-taught lessons at Bemrose (seen towards the end of the film) work. I wonder what they have been able to teach that way.
