Ken Robinson: Why We Must Nurture Creativity In School

I am a fan of TED Conversations/Talks. Perhaps after you watch this video you'll know why. I am so grateful to my friends at Children Inspire Design for sharing this video today. 

Sir Ken Robinson is an entertaining speaker, but don't let his jokes fool you. His message is loud and clear. He makes a case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. I was really moved...and it has open my eyes with regards to my own daughter's abilities and innate nature. I would love for you to watch it yourself and tell me what you think...

  1. Monica,
    Thank you for sharing the TED video with Sir Ken Robinson. I myself am a big fan of SKR and could easily listen to him speak all day. He has to an audience and introduce the simplest of ideas regarding education in such a way that leaves you feeling inspired and hopeful for our kids' futures. I don't know if you've ever watched the animated version of his speech. It is quite profound. http://youtu.be/zDZFcDGpL4U
    Thank you for sharing.
