This video below is one of my all time favourites. Creativity expert Ken Robinson speaks in such an eloquent, and comedic way that entertains and informs. His premise is that school is still oriented far too much towards preparing workers for the industrial revolution, rather than giving children essential tools such as creativity and problem solving.
“Creativity is as important as literacy” in our education system, he says. ”We are educating people out of their creativity”. He has advised the British government on Education issues, and was even knighted for his efforts. I’ve also read his book entitled “The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything”.
