21st century learning methods - David Perkins

This is the second interview we post by Patrick Newell from 21 Foundation. Here he interviews David Perkins, Professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Perkins considers what's worth learning and how to educate for the unknown. Very interesting, worth watching.
"Discourse around education tends to be around methods: how are we are going to get youngsters to learn what we have decided they ought to learn. I think that we need to think in terms of educating for the unknown...for large understandings that can help us code the unexpected as well as the expected"
