One thought on “Changing Education Paradigms

  1. Patricia Stokke

    “Changing Education Paradigms” is a creative, stimulating, and thought provoking presentation about educations systems, how they developed, what they became, and how the approach to education needs to change. To make those changes we need educators and society in general, to think differently about education. Thinking differently means considering the system beyond the traditional construct of what constitutes education, both what education is and how it is accomplished. What worked in the past isn’t working now, so instead of trying to fix a broken system, maybe a new system of education needs to be developed. Otherwise, we may be propping up the outdated model of the industrial age. The industrial education model worked well for the needs of those times; however, now we need to shift the model to work well for the changing needs of today and the future.
