Capacity, Collaboration, Culture: Empty Bowls
And what did everyone learn? What skills were advanced through this kind of activity? Not the kind that are taught from sitting at separate desks, memorizing the one correct answer to the question.
In another compelling and animated video, Sir Ken Robinson explains the history of American education, and how we need just three elements in schools to engage children's minds and hearts: Understanding that human capacity is limitless and broad; that collaboration is the stuff of growth; and that a dynamic culture is essential.
Sounds suspiciously like the Empty Bowls undertaking!
