Are we are educating people out of their creative potential? Can we see through our present education system and understand that the purpose and structures on which it was originally built (not so long ago) have all deeply changed? How can we critically view and improve it on what we believe is the very engine of our present business world?
Thanks to a valuable link reference from Minciu-Sodas email discussion list, I enjoyed a great twenty minutes of highly entertaining video talk from Ken Robinson, a world-renowned speaker on how to find new ways to succeed in a world that is changing faster than ever before.
Ken Robinson is truly an inspirational character with a unique ability to convey powerful messages with extreme simplicity, wit and humor. Now based in LA, but originally from England, before moving to the United States, he was voted Business Speaker of the Year by over 200 global and European companies.
In this 20' video clip from the fantastic Ted Talks video series, he "makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. With ample anecdotes and witty asides, Robinson points out the many ways our schools fail to recognize -- much less cultivate -- the talents of many brilliant people."
