Experiential Education: Learning from Mistakes

Recently, whilst trawling through the TED Talks website I came across an inspiring speech by Diana  Laufenberg that validates the role of experiential education within the contemporary school system.

In the 21st Century where there is information surplus (aka: information at the click of a computer button) this speech reinforces the overwhelming need for authentic learning environments.   Quite clearly, information and knowledge cannot be assessed by standardized tests such as NAPLAN or ATAR scores, and we must move away from a culture which reveres the “banking system – information exchange” model.

Enjoy!!!
