schools kill creativity…

In the “related articles” section of this blog site [note: as at April 2011 this article has been removed] I have included a fascinating transcript, spoken by the man who said (and I would hug him for it) “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original“.

Creativity expert, Sir Ken Robinson, delivered this 20 minute presentation at a TED conference in 2006 [watch the video here]. He presents a “moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity”.

What he has to say is SO refreshing and sensible, when you are not laughing you will marvel at why our institutions (and, indeed, our society in general) haven’t woken up to this advice long ago. Bravo Sir Ken.
