Hello to whoever reads this blog!
Remember I promised I would try to share more sort of personal stuff? Well, here’s something I watched recently and thought it was pretty interesting. It’s a talk by one of the most inspirational people in the field of education, Sir Ken Robinson. It’s also worth checking his other stuff as well.
‘Human culture is essentially unpredictable but it accumulates over the creative activities of individuals feeding off each other’. Education will not come from the top down, rather from the bottom up. People are keen to teach themselves and each other when found in the right environment. Schools need to change the way they view teaching. We have to understand that teaching and learning are two interrelated dynamic concepts, rather than simply an active/passive process.
So let’s see what you people think!
We used to undress our dreams in the dark
serve them with petals and wine
nothing drew our attention
they probably weren’t true
the greatness of our future condemned our present
we lied in bed more than we should have (maybe)
the night used to be scared of us
and anxiously turn into morning
we got into the car
jumped into muddy waters with signs that said
‘do not enter’
they never existed in our imagination
a trick of our minds to express a reality without conditionality
someone’s knocking on my door
i need to get up
you flinched (i didn’t)
Framboise ice-cream with whipped cream. Yeah this is what I want.
Away I am away
Distilled in a pond of madness
Silver ducks they jump
Several things come to my mind when i don’t think
Samurai in disguise
No stories for petty artists
Our philosophers should be respected
Are we still waiting?
Just fated to
not succumb to the future
A curfew for the romantic ones
Oh stop it
Say something nice
You look pretty tonight
Grant authority to your emotions
They can’t betray you
I don’t know anymore
