“My contention is that creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” ~Ken Robinson

It remains to this day the most popular TED talk of all time, having been viewed nearly 50 million times since it was first delivered.

Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence. Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
