Changing Educational Paradigms

Sir Ken Robinson was recently in Red Deer to a packed house interested in the future of public education.  We will be able to provide some clips of the presentation ion the near future.

Here is an interesting video on Sir Ken Robinson on changing educational paradigms.  This is interesting stuff for context on Learning Our Way to the Next Alberta.  You should block off the evening of March 17 for a lecture by Michael Adams of Environics and author of a new book about the last half of life for Baby Boomers called "Stayin' Alive." 

Dr. Jean Twenge will also be speaking on  her new book "The Narcissist Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement."  This is part of the Learning Our Way as Aspiring Albertans series pf lectures and workshops we at Cambridge Strategies do with the ATA.

His comments on ADHD are relevant to a new book by Kathryn Burke call "An Accidental Advocate" we have helped publish.  This book is a first person account of Kathryn's journey with her ADHD son and the struggle to get him the educational help he needs.
