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!!!!!
