Ken Robinson: How Schools Kill Creativity

Education truly is a wonderful gift but if traditional education would choose to not evolve with the trend then it’s quite limiting and completely self-defeating. Certain standards also runs the risk of making everything fit into a mold that not everyone can relate to. Or worse, think of the possibilities of writing off a genius creative as stupid and illiterate just because the method of learning presented to that person is not his learning language. I do believe that Ken Robinson deserves a big thank you for challenging the traditional systems schools have. Yes, I do believe what the current schools teach are important but I also believe that in order for it to remain important and true to its core, it has to adapt in order to evolve. It has to apply what it teaches that humans are diverse and that diversity needs attention. At core, learning is a gift and learning changes as the world with its people changes. I’m so blessed to be living in a generation that has started celebrating balance, diversity and creativity in education.

some talk highlights

– all children are born artists

– frank sent this

– if you’re not prepared to be wrong you will not come up with anything original

– creativity: the process of having original ideas that have value

– “if a man speaks his mind in the forest, and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?”

It is always good to rethink what we think we know. Thank you TED and thank you Ken Robinson.
