What learning is all about

Here's a short inspiring video that I discovered from a Twitter contact. It ties in the post I wrote last week about internal and external motivation and illustrates the limitations of an education system based on regulation, standardisation and efficiency. I'm not sure about who's behind the film but the message is compelling. Only by stimulating internal motivation can formal education become truly relevant and, despite many good intentions, the effects of testing and result-based financing are nearly always negative when it comes to learning.

It's all about two conversations; one you have with yourself and one you have with your community.
