In the Ted video that I just watched, this short clip was very powerful I can say that I learned alot in just a few minutes. Ted was saying that creativity is important in education literacy, he also said that students are scared to be wrong, they always wanted to right. He also talked about Dynamic, he also went on to say that we as parents, teachers, etc, that we are the children hope that they are or job and that we have to help them, and also prepare them for whats to come in the world today. Once again this video open up my eyes to think about, things in a different way.

The common core state standards, Initiative in the United States that details with k-12 students should know English, Language Arts, and Mathematics at the end of each grade.

Have we created a trillion-dollar, multimillion-student, sixteen-year schooling cycle to take our best and our brightest and snuff out their dreams—sometimes when they’re so nascent that they haven’t even been articulated? Is the product of our massive schooling industry an endless legion of assistants? The century of dream-snuffing has to end. The real shortage we face is dreams, and the wherewithal and the will to make them come true. We’re facing a significant emergency, one that’s not just economic but cultural as well. The time to act is right now, and the person to do it is you.

We can teach them not to care; that’s pretty easy. But given the massive technological and economic changes we’re living through, do we have the opportunity to teach productive and effective caring? Can we teach kids to care enough about their dreams that they’ll care enough to develop the judgment, skill, and attitude to make them come true? (

What connections do you see to the ideas that Sir Ken suggested about school killing creativity?

Sir Ken suggested that all children have different way of learning. their learning at their pace, but because the school system is killing creativity it make it hard for children learn and teacher have to find a new way of teaching children.

Are Common Core State Standards a help or a hindrance in fostering creativity?

I think the Common Core Standards is a set high-quality academic standards in mathematics and English language art/literacy. However, these learning goals outline what children need know and be able to do at the end of each grade levels.

How would following Seth Gordon’s advice support or inhibit the ideas that our students need to be better prepared to compete against other in global economy?

Teacher are designed to ensure that children are prepared for entry-level careers, freshman-level college courses, and workforce training programs. Students need to able develop the critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills students will need to be successful.

How would this advice inhibit or improve the ability for students to learn twenty-first century skills? Explain your thinking.

I believe that the standards are designed to prepared students for the outside the classroom. They include critical-thinking skills and the ability to closely and attentively read tests in a way that will help them understand and enjoy complex works of literature. Students will learn how to use cogent reasoning and evidence collection skills to be successful in the 21st century.
