In this talk, I argue that we need to become more ‘Critically ConnectEd’. Drawing on my 30 years’ experience as an educator, I explain why we need education and learning which connects us to ourselves and each other, to our contexts and the planet, and to our past and future. Despite talk of more connectivity, I suggest that people have become more disconnected than ever from their realities, through the heroising of individual ‘success’, in tendencies towards surface-level explanations and stereotypes, in consumerism and in a sense of invincibility when it comes to people and the planet. Dr. Eilish Dillon is an educator and an activist. She is committed to realising the potential of critical global education for creating a world based on equality, justice and sustainability. Having transferred from Kimmage Development Studies Centre in 2018, Eilish is now Head of the Department of International Development at Maynooth University. There she facilitates learning programmes on theories and practices of development and co-ordinates postgraduate research on global development issues. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
