…until I had the chance to chat with Sir Ken Robinson!

Ok, so although I’m absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to toss ideas around with one of the coolest educational gurus of our time, I need to focus on the importance of what we were discussing.  The thing is, our little chat is really just a bunch of common sense about learning, teaching and education.  Fear of failure and mistakes can stunt our growth as students and learners.  By embracing the notion that experience can serve as a guide rather than avoiding any possible mishaps, maybe we could be rewarded with a much richer learning environment.

Today’s chat was made possible by Penguin Books (using the hashtag #readpenguin), and helped draw attention to Sir Ken’s book, Finding Your Element.  Yes, this is definitely a book I’ll be reading!
