Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

Posted by Andy

I've come across this interesting video on two seperate conferences and find it really thought-provoking. I'm sure there are parts you'll agree with and others you won't - apart from then he's talking about university professors!
Seriously though, I think despite Sir Ken focussing his talk on schools and children, the reality is that school leavers turn into university undergraduates. It is important that those who enter our doors arrive with the right mind set and skills and that we nurture these skills and contribute to them. The education plateau has shifted, there is a generation of students who cannot remember a world before The Internet. We need to work together with the prize of mutural creativity and therefore an output which adds value.
