Changing Education Paradigms

For over 250 years the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) has been a cradle of enlightenment thinking and a force for social progress.  Their approach is multi-disciplinary, politically independent and combines cutting edge research and policy development with practical action.

I discovered this particular web-based learning resource a few days ago, via a friend’s link to it on his facebook page. Of course I do not agree with everything in this presentation, who would? What fun is it if you simply agree with everything you see and hear? If I already know something and agree with it then the sole reason for reading it will very often be to buttress my present view not to think at all. I encourage real thinking so I read and watch things that help me do that and then seek to make every thought captive to Christ.

This cleverly animated program is so relevant to our time. And it is completely apropos to training in discipleship and mission thus I believe it is extremely important for most of you to see it.
