Over the holidays I have featured some resources on Global2 that you might not find time to view in a hectic school term.
This talk Bring on the learning revolution has been presented as the follow-up to Sir Ken Robinson’s fabled 2006 talk Do schools kill creativity? It seems to be relatively low key by comparison, but I dare you to watch this and not feel the reference because you tread on my dreams, referenced within the Yeats poem and contextualised within this Ted Talk.
“The cloths of heaven”
Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light;
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
