RSA Animate--Changing Education Paradigms

The following was a little tidbit I found on a Facebook teacher pal's page...and it's definitely food for thought -- not only for all teachers, but truly for just about anyone.  

I think the video below ("Changing Education Paradigms") from RSA Animate speaks volumes in regard to how we approach education these days.  I also think it speaks well for the environmental education shift that some schools/states are making.  It parallels the importance of educating in stimulating ways and getting kids "out in the woods."  That holds true whether you're following Henry David Thoreau's philosophy of days gone by from his 1854 Walden, or the more modern yet parallel view of Richard Louv's Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder

As an aside...I'm also eager to see what other video resources RSA Animate has as they are magnificent works of art while simultaneously being chock-full of great information!  Click the video or the title above, or go to to see the RSA Animate--Changing Education Paradigms.
