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!!!!!
