The whole point of education is to get people to learn...

One of the great things about the Internet is access to ideas and thoughts. TED Talks are a great source for a teacher's professional learning, for use in our classrooms and to widen our own personal understanding. If you haven't had a look, check out TED Talks.

Ken Robinson's latest TED talk "How to escape education's death valley" has once again had me thinking about how we perceive teaching and learning. Watch it and see what you think.  Interestingly, he mentions Australia as a school that recognises that professional development for teachers is an investment not a cost. What do you think?
