Do Schools Kill Creativity? : Sir Ken Robinson

28 Aug

One of the most watched TED talks of all time, here’s Sir Ted Robinson – the well-known British educator who speaks to global audiences on the creative challenges facing business and education in new international economies – speaking in 2006 on how schools kill creativity and how schools should educate the ‘whole-being’ of students through recognizing the diversity of intelligence. Sir Robinson is a humorous speaker, who illustrates his subject nicely through case-in-point observations.

As the western world begins a move toward creating a more conducive environment for students to embrace subjects they are interested in, and not necessarily study everything through rote learning – India is still on the cramming and examining path. Is this a good or a bad thing?
