Creativity and Education

What started off as a throwaway comment on Twitter today led me to one of the most inspirational talks I have seen since Hans Rosling at Le Web.

Sir Ken Robinson talks at TED about how the current education system kills creativity and continues to take the 19th Century approach of generating people trained for industry.

It’s 20 minutes long and I encourage you to watch every minute. It isn’t just thought provoking, it is also hilarious.

Thanks to Des Traynor for making my week.
