RSA Animate Favorites

Hi. Here are my favorite RSA Animate videos.

February 2011: Language as a Window into Human Nature. Steven Pinker shows us how the mind turns the finite building blocks of language into infinite meanings:

October 2010: Changing Education Paradigms. Another inspiring RSA Animate taken from a speech given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education expert and recipient of the RSA Benjamin Franklin award:

August 2010: 21st Century Enlightenment. Matthew Taylor explores the meaning of 21st century enlightenment, how the idea might help us meet the challenges we face today, and the role that can be played by organisations such as the RSA:

April 2010: Drive. This lively RSA Animate, adapted from Dan Pink’s talk at the RSA, illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace:

March 2010: Smile or Die. Acclaimed journalist, author and political activist Barbara Ehrenreich explores the darker side of positive thinking:

“What could be a better way of quelling social dissent than by telling people that are in trouble (poverty, unemployed, etc) that it’s all their attitude. Get with the program and smile and don’t complain. It’s a brilliant form of social control!”

Thanks for visiting,
