Ken Robinson on Personalized Learning
I particularly liked his analogy between fast food versus personalized restaurants and mainstream versus personalized learning.
On the other hand I dislike the metaphoric argument he makes for moving from factories to agraculture. What we do not need is a reflection of the dominant system of agriculture filled with vast mono-culture fields managed by machines and chemicals. He must have had a romantic notion of a family farmer in some wondrous communion with his fields, but that's not how most farming works anymore. I am skeptical of trying to fight the fantasy about schooling as a factory with another fantasy about farming.
