Do schools kill creativity?

Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenged the way we educate our children, championing a radical rethink of how our school systems cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Sir Ken Robinson has long argued that our current educational system stifles creativity and ignores multiple forms of intelligence. He believes that instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to education, schools should be designed to nurture the individual talents and abilities of each student. To this end, he advocates for an approach that would emphasize self-expression, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, and lifelong learning. He believes that our education system should foster creativity and encourage students to take risks, make mistakes, and innovate. Additionally, he argues that schools should recognize and acknowledge the unique strengths of each student, rather than relying solely on standardized tests to measure success.

His TED Talk "Do schools kill creativity" is one of the most watched TED talks of all time and has been viewed over 100 million times and translated into over 40 languages. His highly inspiring book, "Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education," is an international bestseller.

Sir Ken Robinson innovation and future-focused approach to education has been at the forefront of educational reform and has been embraced around the world. His work has helped to spark a global conversation around education and has been credited with helping to shift public opinion on the value of creativity in education.

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. Creativity offers us a way to think differently and to engage with life in a more meaningful and productive way. His work has inspired countless educators and students, and has helped to make the world a better place.
