Video: Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

“Creativity is as important in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson

A friend shared this video with me today. She is a social worker who works with troubled teenagers who fall out of mainstream education. She has a great interest in education and has commented to me in the past that some of the young people that she works with are extremely bright but the classroom environment just is not a place where they can flourish.

Anyway, she shared this video by Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity and innovation in education. Dare I say, until 20 minutes ago I didn’t know who he was. Nevertheless, I have just bought one of his books from Amazon and would encourage anybody interested in the model for formal education and the importance of harnessing creativity to take a look at this.
