Ken Robinson on School Kill's Creativity

Wonderful TED lecture on how Schools kill creativity. Funny. Thought provoking. A few quotes to wet your appitite:

"Children starting school this year will be retiring in 2065. Nobody has a clue.....what the world will look like in five years time. Yet we are educating them for this."

"Creativity is as important in education as Literacy and we should treat it with the same status!"

"If you aren't prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original."
