Why don’t we get the best out of people? In one of the most popular TED Talks ever presented, Sir Ken Robinson argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. It’s a message with deep resonance.
Now, in this new TED Talk, a poignant but still funny follow-up video to his highly popular 2006 talk, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning: creating conditions where the natural talents of children can flourish and grow.
