Learning in a controlling environment

Thanks to Maxim’s comment on our about page I just discovered the following video. It is about education and the way we structure learning. Working for a research institute and more generally in an industry the main product of which is knowledge, all these same points apply to the creative potential of our organizations as well.

One very telling quote from the video:

For the last hundred years we have used the industrial narrative. Schools are like factories, it’s an administrative process, it’s about control and order.
