Old question, new question

This RSA video suggests a few problems with attempts at systemic educational change (39sec to 1min 24sec mark). One problem is teacher professional development that provides knowledge, but does not attempt to change behaviours.
To make matters worse, only one out of four teachers in OECD countries are rewarded for trying to be innovative (1min 56 to 2min 02 sec mark).
RSA suggest we stop asking the old question of “What works?” and instead encourage teachers to ask “What might work?” To do this, teachers must be problem-owners, solution designers, and risk-takers.
