“Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.” ~ Sir Ken Robinson
We can all agree that education is very important for each and every one of us. But what happens when you realize that the school systems nowadays teach children more about becoming good workers and very little about becoming creative thinkers?
Watch this inspiring TED Talk to learn from Sir Ken Robinson how schools actually undermine creativity more than encourage it. He challenges each and every one of us to take a closer look at children’s education and see it in a new light by simply cultivating creativity and agree with the idea of multiple intelligence types.
Sir Ken Robinson Speaks on Education: How Schools Squash Creativity
