Top 10 TEDTalks (and Do Schools Today Kill Creativity?)

Late in the week, TEDTalks named its top ten videos. Whether this is a quan­ti­ta­tive or qual­i­ta­tive judg­ment, I am not sure.  On the list, you’ll find Al Gore talk­ing about how to avert a cli­mate cri­sis, David Gal­lo show­ing amaz­ing under­wa­ter crea­tures, and Ken Robin­son describ­ing why schools kill cre­ativ­i­ty (we’ve post­ed that one below). Again the full list is here.

  • Now if Sir Ken Robin­son has­n’t giv­en you pause to recon­sid­er your con­cept of “Edu­ca­tion” there’s lit­tle chance any­one will. As for his dis­cus­sion with regard to “Cre­ative Capac­i­ty…” What a thought pro­vok­ing con­cept, imag­ine a time and place where the world is full of pos­si­bil­i­ties. Where col­or­ing out­side the lines is applaud­ed, where song and dance are expressed unashamed­ly. Con­sid­er if you will for a moment… an era of day-dreams and fairy­tales, a kalei­do­scope of ideas and adven­ture. Dare if you would… to con­tem­plate an envi­ron­ment where cre­ativ­i­ty has an unlim­it­ed capac­i­ty, and you’ll have bare­ly scratched the sur­face of a child’s imag­i­na­tion… So, do I think this post ought to be passed on…? That would be a YES!!!!!
