I’ve long been a fan of TED Talks, a series of lectures related to Technology, Entertainment, and Design. They consistently provide thought-provoking content on a wide variety of topics. Yesterday I finally had the opportunity to listen to one that I’ve had bookmarked for quite some time, and it’s quickly shot up near the top of my list of favorite talks!
Sir Ken Robinson is an expert on creativity and education (two things near and dear to my heart), and is the author of Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative. Here is his talk delivered at the 2006 TED Conference. At times hilarious, at times profound, he shares his thoughts on cultivating creativity through the way we educate our children. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Let me know what you think.
