Un enfoque revolucionario sobre cómo educar. Robinson desarrolla en Escuelas creativas las ideas de su famosa charla TED «Cómo la escuela mata la creatividad» y ofrece soluciones innovadoras y revolucionarias para uno de los problemas más relevantes de nuestra sociedad: cómo transformar un sistema educativo que no funciona. En una época en la que los procesos de evaluación se estandarizan, las escuelas pasan por momentos difíciles y tanto estudiantes como educadores sufren una presión enorme, Robinson nos ofrece soluciones prácticas para terminar con el caduco sistema educativo actual heredado de la Revolución Industrial. Para lograrlo, propone darle a la educación un enfoque personalizado. Sugiere aprovechar el potencial de los recursos tecnológicos y profesionales disponibles y fomentar así la participación de los estudiantes para que pierdan el miedo a equivocarse, desarrollen su pasión por aprender y su creatividad, y estén preparados para afrontar los retos que les depare el futuro. Repleto de anécdotas, casos, investigaciones y consejos de profesionales pioneros en el tema, Escuelas creativas apasionará a cualquier interesado en la educación, porque le hará replantearse muchas ideas preconcebidas y le ayudará a reflexionar sobre cuál es realmente el verdadero sentido de la educación en el siglo XXI. Grandes autores e investigadores de la educación opinan... «Escuelas creativas es un libro maravilloso y ameno. Hace que te replantees el sentido auténtico de la escuela, el aprendizaje y la creatividad.» Malala Yousafzai, autora de Yo soy Malala, Premio Nobel de la Paz 2014 «"Capta mi interés." Robinson y Aronica convierten estas tres palabras en un lema para la educación del futuro. No hacemos la educación para los alumnos, sino con ellos. Espero que todos los profesores y padres lean este libro.» Seth Godin, autor de La vaca púrpura «Olvida la cháchara acerca de la irrupción de la tecnología y de la economía en la educación. Ken Robinson y Lou Aronica nos explican de forma clara los cambios necesarios si queremos una educación de calidad.» Howard Gardner, autor de Inteligencias múltiples «Ken Robinson es el mayor y más influyente defensor de la transformación global de la educación; su clarividencia, pasión y perspicacia han inspirado a millones de personas, yo incluido. Este libro no es una celebración de lo que se puede conseguir.» Richard Gerver, autor de El cambio y Crear hoy la escuela de mañana

The element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. This groundbreaking new book is all about how every one of us can find our element, connecting with our true talents and fulfilling our creative potential. Creativity expert Ken Robinson believes that we are all born with tremendous natural capacities, but that we lose touch with them as we spend more time in the world. Whether it's a child bored in class, an employee being misused or just someone who feels frustrated but can't quite explain why, too many people don't know what they are really capable of achieving. Education, business and society as a whole are losing out. The Element draws on the stories of a wide range of people - from ex-Beatle Paul McCartney to renowned physicist Richard Feynman and many others, including business leaders and athletes - showing how all of them came to recognize their unique talents and were able to make a successful living doing what they love. With a wry sense of humour and a sense of optimism, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the element, and those that stifle that possibility. He shows that age and occupation are no barrier and he argues that there is an urgent need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about ourselves.

A revolutionary reappraisal of how to educate our children and young people by Ken Robinson, the New York Times bestselling author of The Element and Finding Your Element Ken Robinson is one of the world’s most influential voices in education, and his 2006 TED Talk on the subject is the most viewed in the organization’s history. Now, the internationally recognized leader on creativity and human potential focuses on one of the most critical issues of our time: how to transform the nation’s troubled educational system. At a time when standardized testing businesses are raking in huge profits, when many schools are struggling, and students and educators everywhere are suffering under the strain, Robinson points the way forward. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. Filled with anecdotes, observations and recommendations from professionals on the front line of transformative education, case histories, and groundbreaking research—and written with Robinson’s trademark wit and engaging style—Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.

From a world-renowned leader in neuroscience, a provocative, enthralling journey into the depths of the human mind. Where do our thoughts come from? How do we make choices and trust our judgments? What is the role of the unconscious? Can we manipulate our dreams? In this mind-bending international bestseller, award-winning neuroscientist Mariano Sigman explores the complex answers to these and many other age-old questions. Over the course of his 20-year career investigating the inner workings of the human brain, Dr. Sigman has cultivated a remarkable interdisciplinary vision. He draws on research in physics, linguistics, psychology, education, and beyond to explain why people who speak more than one language are less prone to dementia; how infants can recognize by sight objects they've previously only touched; how babies, even before they utter their first word, have an innate sense of right and wrong; and how we can "read" the thoughts of vegetative patients by decoding patterns in their brain activity. Building on the author's awe-inspiring TED talk, the cutting-edge research presented in The Secret Life of the Mind revolutionizes how we understand the role that neuroscience plays in our lives, unlocking the mysterious cerebral processes that control the ways in which we learn, reason, feel, think, and dream.

The Shallows What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains

Finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction: “Nicholas Carr has written a Silent Spring for the literary mind.”—Michael Agger, Slate “Is Google making us stupid?” When Nicholas Carr posed that question, in a celebrated Atlantic Monthly cover story, he tapped into a well of anxiety about how the Internet is changing us. He also crystallized one of the most important debates of our time: As we enjoy the Net’s bounties, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply? Now, Carr expands his argument into the most compelling exploration of the Internet’s intellectual and cultural consequences yet published. As he describes how human thought has been shaped through the centuries by “tools of the mind”—from the alphabet to maps, to the printing press, the clock, and the computer—Carr interweaves a fascinating account of recent discoveries in neuroscience by such pioneers as Michael Merzenich and Eric Kandel. Our brains, the historical and scientific evidence reveals, change in response to our experiences. The technologies we use to find, store, and share information can literally reroute our neural pathways. Building on the insights of thinkers from Plato to McLuhan, Carr makes a convincing case that every information technology carries an intellectual ethic—a set of assumptions about the nature of knowledge and intelligence. He explains how the printed book served to focus our attention, promoting deep and creative thought. In stark contrast, the Internet encourages the rapid, distracted sampling of small bits of information from many sources. Its ethic is that of the industrialist, an ethic of speed and efficiency, of optimized production and consumption—and now the Net is remaking us in its own image. We are becoming ever more adept at scanning and skimming, but what we are losing is our capacity for concentration, contemplation, and reflection. Part intellectual history, part popular science, and part cultural criticism, The Shallows sparkles with memorable vignettes—Friedrich Nietzsche wrestling with a typewriter, Sigmund Freud dissecting the brains of sea creatures, Nathaniel Hawthorne contemplating the thunderous approach of a steam locomotive—even as it plumbs profound questions about the state of our modern psyche. This is a book that will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.

Good Education In An Age Of Measurement

The widespread use of the measurement of educational outcomes in order to compare the performance of education within and across countries seems to express a real concern for the quality of education. This book argues that the focus on the measurement of educational outcomes has actually displaced questions about educational purpose. Biesta explores why the question as to what constitutes good education has become so much more difficult to ask and shows why this has been detrimental for the quality of education and for the level of democratic control over education. He provides concrete suggestions for engaging with the question of purpose in education in a new, more precise and more encompassing way, with explicit attention to the ethical, political and democratic dimensions of education.
