Ken Robinson: "It's not like making motor cars."

What do you think of what Sir Ken has to say?

To me, he is on the money.  But, how can schools individualize education?  I think the only way is through the use of personalized learning that takes place through the use of technology.  We are not there yet, but there will be a day when someone's laptop, iPad, eReader, or even cell phones will be all you need to conduct a class and receive a quality course in education.  Nothing will replace one on one interaction and traditional classroom settings, but the use of technology will enhance it.  It is my hope that having kids be able to take electives through a technology portal will increase their learning and skill level and that will, in turn, show improvements in the traditional classroom.  We'll see.
