I recently watched this talk once again at our school’s PD day about Personalised Learning.
Sir Ken Robinson highlights the need to revolutionise learning in accordance with the PRESENT and FUTURE needs of our students.
I fondly remember the first time I heard this talk by Sir Ken Robinson. It was in late 2010 and I had just started teaching in an open-plan learning space. My colleague, Adrian shared this and some of Sir Ken Robinson’s other TED talks. I was instantly inspired by Sir Ken Robinson’s passion and ideas. Suddenly, my eyes were opened to the need for a change in the way we educate.
As of 25 January 2013, the largest prime number was 2 to the power of 57,885,161 minus 1 as discovered by Dr Curtis Cooper. This number would be 17,425,170 digits long! Unbelievable!
I love the passion in which Adam speaks of prime numbers. I can’t believe how much maths can be explored whilst learning about prime numbers. I definitely would like to do more of this with my students.
