Sir Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

I wanted to draw your attention to a MUST SEE TED presentation by Sir Ken Robinson. He wonders why don't we get the best out of people?

Robinson argues that it's because we've been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies -- far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity -- are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. "We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says.

I highly recommend taking the time to watch the video. Watch here:

You can also watch Sir Ken Robinson on a free webinar March 30th, Tuesday (5pm Pacific, 8pm Eastern, 11pm GMT): Sir Ken Robinson on The Element.
