Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!

As a follow-up to my last post about Sir Ken Robinson here, is another talk from TED.

More information about Sir Ken Robinson we find at his speaker page :

Creativity expert 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.

A visionary cultural leader, Sir Ken led the British government’s 1998 advisory committee on creative and cultural education, a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, and was knighted in 2003 for his achievements. His latest book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, a deep look at human creativity and education, was published in January 2009.

    Absolutely one of the best, funniest speakers I’ve ever seen. If only there were more people like him in education. (Or in anything, come to think of it.)
