Sir Ken Robinson: Interesting Take on Education and Creativity

24 Oct

While surfing the web I found this interesting video on a cool blog. Sir Ken Robinson speaking on education and creativity.

Read some thoughts: Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. With ample anecdotes and witty asides, Robinson points out the many ways our schools fail to recognize — much less cultivate — the talents of many brilliant people. ‘We are educating people out of their creativity,’ Robinson says. The universality of his message is evidenced by its rampant popularity online. A typical review: ‘If you have not yet seen Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk, please stop whatever you’re doing and watch it now.'”

If you can’t view the following video, click here to watch it on YouTube.

As someone who works in both the education and design field, I understand what Robinson is trying to say.
