We will continue to watch Sir Ken Robinson’s video about how schools are stealing the creativity of its students.

You will analyze the speech.

Alvin Toffler’s School of Tomorrow

These are the fundamentals of the futurist’s vision for education in the 21st century:

  • Open 24 hours a day
  • Customized educational experience
  • Kids arrive at different times
  • Students begin their formalized schooling at different ages
  • Curriculum is integrated across disciplines
  • Nonteachers work with teachers
  • Teachers alternate working in schools and in business world
  • Local businesses have offices in the schools
