I have collected a number of interesting sources for further reading and watching in this post. The list is not exhaustive, but I have included the ones that are most meaningful for me.
If you are completely new to this subject, please start with watching Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talks on Education:
- Schools kill Creativity (watched > 13 million times)
- Bring on the learning revolution (watched > 3 million times)
- Or the animated version: Changing education paradigms (watched > 1 million times)
- And if you want to know even more, read his book ‘Out of our minds’
A highly recommended book is ‘Why School?’ from Will Richardson. Downloadable via the TED Books app (on for example your iPad), 35 pages for just EUR 2.39 or USD 2.99. Must read.
I find the following international sources very interesting:
- Teachthought (a platform that explores the best in learning innovation, connecting people not only with resources and ideas, but models, frameworks and curricula)
- EducationRevolution.org (resource for families looking for educational alternatives, school/resource center starters, and alternative education researchers)
- All TED talks on Education (or just the 10 ‘best’ picked by TED)
- Following the #edchat on Twitter
- Hetkind.org (heeft als doelstelling om te verbinden, inspireren en legitimeren), initiatief van van NIVOZ
- Innofun (helpt onderwijsorganisaties bij maximaliseren rendement, oa via social media implementaties)
- Edushock (oproep tot meer creativiteit en innovatie in het onderwijs)
