Changing Education Paradigms: Sir Ken Robinson
This is one of my favorite speakers, Kenneth Robinson. He’s an author, educator, and creativity expert, he speaks internationally, challenging us to rethink our school systems, cultivate creativity and protect the arts.
You’ll appreciate the message in this video – but also that it is so visual – because its been illustrated! The images make his thoughts even more powerful.
These are some of my favorite quotes from the video:
“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.”
“I believe this passionately: that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out if it.”
“We are educating people out of their creative capacities.”
