I just came across this awesome TED Talk by Ken Robinson. It made me think about the ways we as educators can nurture creative and innovative thinking… or kill it.
In it he says:
“If you think of it, the whole system of public education around the world is a protracted process of university entrance. And the consequence is that many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not, because the thing they were good at at school wasn’t valued or was actually stigmatized.”
What do you think about that?
Check out the talk (below) and let me know what you think in the comments. I’ll be posting more on my thoughts about arts education in the coming weeks.:
