Sir Ken Robinson once did a presentation at Ted Talks, this particular video has had the most views of any Ted Talk speakers. I have watched this video many times. I think it is so inspiring, so thought provoking, interesting, insightful. It certainly makes you reconsider the schooling systems, teaching methods, children's development etc. Sir Ken is also a great presenter, amusing but serious and not at all patronizing.
I do believe schools kill creativity not in the early years but certainly at secondary level. I won't give my opinion on this but he makes some valid points.
I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
