TED – Sir Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?
Recently I discovered a website called TED (via swiss miss). TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. My three favorite things! TED started in 1984 as a conference bringing people together from these three backgrounds. Since then TED has brought together some of the worlds most incredible thinkers challenging them to talk about what they do in 18 minutes.
Tonight I finally had the chance to listen to Sir Ken Robinson talk about creativity in schools. I’ve been meaning to watch this for a while now. It’s pretty interesting. He’s a good speaker and I enjoyed listening to him. In 18 minutes Sir Ken Robinson makes a case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, instead of undermining it. It was also interesting to read all the comments regarding his talk. Click here to read the comments.
It’s going to take me a few more days to go through the TED web site. I highly recommend checking it out for yourself. It seems like a great site for learning and discussion.
