What if we Obliterated Standardised Testing...

"We need to adapt to the ever impending future which undoubtely awaits us while we can before it is too late"

Let's hear what a student has to say...Can we see beyond a student's test grades? Why do we have to conform to cookie-cutter uniformity? Behshid (a student in grade 10) wonders what the educational world would be like if one size does not fit all. The theme for TEDxWinchesterTeachers is "The Beginning of Infinity: Education and the Future".  New advances and cutting-edge discoveries in the fields of artificial intelligence, neuroscience, genetics, quantum computing, nanotechnology, and cosmology are dramatically changing how we perceive the world. If we wish to prepare students for a radically different future, the traditional methods of education cannot continue.
