Et par input til din blog vedr. kreativitet og ordblindhed. Det kan være, du allerede er stødt på foredragene, men pyt nu med det:-)Hvis man tager udgangspunkt i Ken Robinsons teser, kunne det være interessant at undersøge en påstand, der lyder noget a la:
Ordblinde excellerer ofte kreativt, fordi deres "handicap" har reddet dem fra at blive ødelagt i et dogmatisk tilrettelagt skolesystem.
Robinson has suggested that to engage and succeed, education develop on three fronts. First, that it should foster diversity by offering a broad curriculum and encouraging individualization of the learning process; That it should foster curiosity through creative teaching, which depends on high quality teacher training and development; And finally that it should focus on awakening creativity rather than standardized testing, giving the responsibility for defining the course of education to individual schools and teachers. He believes that much of the present education system in the United States fosters conformity, compliance, and standardization rather than creative approaches to learning. Robinson emphasizes that we can only succeed if we recognize that education is a dynamic human system, not a mechanical one. Successful school administration is a matter of fostering a helpful climate rather than "command and control".
Learning Through Drama: Report of The Schools Council Drama Teaching (1977) was the result of a three-year national development project for the UK Schools Council. Robinson was principal author of The Arts in Schools: Principles, Practice, and Provision (1982), now a key text on arts and education internationally. He edited The Arts and Higher Education, (1984), co-wrote The Arts in Further Education(1986), Arts Education in Europe, and Facing the Future: The Arts and Education in Hong Kong,.Robinson's 2001 book, Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative (Wiley-Capstone), was described by Director magazine as "a truly mind-opening analysis of why we don’t get the best out of people at a time of punishing change." John Cleese said of it: ‘Ken Robinson writes brilliantly about the different ways in which creativity is undervalued and ignored in Western culture and especially in our educational systems.’The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, was published in January 2009 by Penguin. The element refers to the experience of personal talent meeting personal passion. He argues that in this encounter, we feel most ourselves, most inspired, and achieve to our highest level. The book draws on the stories of creative artists such as Paul McCartney, 'Simpsons' creator Matt Groening,Meg Ryan, and physicist Richard Feynman to investigate this paradigm of success.
