I have read, and presented my synopsis of the Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything by Sir Ken Robinson. I have blogged about him here. I have watched the videos from his presentations at TED, Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity and Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution! He’s a real champion of creativity, with lots of freedom, in education.
Here is a terrific RSA Animate (white board illustrated) of Changing Education Paradigms, a presentation he made at The Royal Society of the Arts. It is just over 11½ minutes, and has had over 800,000 views. It is worth the time. (I learned about this from an exceptional financial adviser at an event this week).
Take a look.
