Sir Ken Robinson’s most recent TED Talk was one of those talks that you could watch ten times and get ten different takeaways each time.

When I watched it the first time, I liked SKR’s analogy that teaching is like dieting.

The student in the video below had a less articulate (but more honest) critique about teaching not leading to learning.
