Critical Approaches to Culture + Communications

A Weblog by Ron Burnett (Founded in 1994 and now celebrating 23 Years!!)

This site began as one of the first academic sites in Canada when the World Wide Web was in its early phase of development. I have maintained it through many iterations since 1994.

Ken Robinson on Education

Some years ago, I was privileged to meet Sir Ken Robinson at the Getty Center in Los Angeles. He gave a speech to the TED conference recently and it can be seen here. His central points about education and learning and how they are linked to creativity are important to consider. The site his speech is on is run by Paul Miller who is a strong supporter of the work of Ivan Illich. Another speech that Robinson gave at Concordia University can be seen at this site.
