Schools Kill Creativity

According to Sir Ken Robinson, a revolutionary educationalist who challenges the premises of traditional education.

In his profound and inspiring TED talk the author claims that we are all born with natural capacities for creativity, on the one hand, and that traditional system of education suppresses them, on the other hand.

I really recommend to watch this short yet brilliant lecture by Ken Robinson in order to rethink the role of education in our lives, and whether it really equips us with tools and skills to face the challenges of the super-changing world.

Perhaps one of the speaker’s core ideas is this: “If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”
