RSA Animate Video

Yesterday in my web 2.0 class, we watched a video about a guy, Ken Robinson, that shared his opinion on school systems in this time period. As a matter of fact, my family and I discussed this at dinner last night. I think alot of people agree with the fact the school is very demanding. This system was made for a different time period. Ken talked about how more and more people are getting diagnosed with ADHD. Doctors are giving kids aderol, etc, to calm kids down so that they can focus on school work when in reality, they should be doing the complete opposite and make kids hyper so they can bring out their true personality and learn by themselves what they want to become in life. Alot of what ken was saying was opinion, but it really got us students thinking.

A Web 2.0 Class: Students Learn 21st Century Skills, Collaboration, and Digital Citizenship

I really think that this whole system is working out great. Being able to connect with other students in the same position I myself am in, is just refreshing. We are all putting in our best efforts to create each and every one of our PLN's. And together, I really think that we can start something new here.
