TED on Sunday: Sir Ken Robinson on Education and Creativity

March 01, 2009

In this funny and thought-provoking presentation, creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we educate our children. Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation, and human resources, is probably best known for leading a national commission in the United Kingdom on creativity, education, and the economy. The resulting report, All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture and Education (244 pages, PDF), was published to wide acclaim in 1999. His new book, The Element: Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, was published earlier this year by Penguin. Enjoy. (Filmed: February 2006. Running time: 19:24.)

Quote of the Week

  • "Public education does not serve a public. It creates a public. And in creating the right kind of public, the schools contribute toward strengthening the spiritual basis of the American Creed. That is how Jefferson understood it, how Horace Mann understood it, how John Dewey understood it, and in fact, there is no other way to understand it...."

    — Neil Postman (1931-2003), American author, educator, media theorist, and cultural critic
