On Jan 6, 2007 (has it really been over 7 years ago?) TEDTalks YouTube Channel published a talk by Sir Ken Robinson that explores the apparent flaws in the way we approach creativity in education globally.

I stumbled across this today and felt it was worth sharing again.  This video has over 6 Million views which seems like a lot, but Rebecca Black’s Friday video has enjoyed over 67 Million, and I’m fairly certain this talk is more valuable and loads more entertaining.

If you have 20 minutes or so to spare, I urge you to watch this presentation.  It is thought provoking and really makes me wonder how many more creative solutions may have been developed if our education system nurtured the arts and creativity with the same ferocity with which we emphasize the sciences.  Let me be clear.  I said “the same” ferocity.  I certainly do not advocate elevating the arts above the sciences necessarily, but perhaps a more balanced model could be more effective than our current approach to education.

Thanks for watching.  Please like and share this post if you found the content valuable.  Also I would really appreciate it if you would subscribe to my email list.  Have a wonderful day!
