Education and Creativity
The following link is a wonderful talk about creativity and education – about how we should value and encourage it. The talk by Sir Ken Robinson posits that creativity is as important as literacy.
Among other things in the talk Robertson says that:
- children are not afraid of being wrong
- that if people are not prepared to be wrong they will never come up with anything original
- that our current system “educates” people out of being creative
The talk is just under 20 minutes long and is also very funny.
