TED Talks: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Do schools kill creativity? | Sir Ken Robinson | TED

A TED talk about education and how we are teaching kids to grow out of creativity in school.  The notes I took during watching the video is that:

  • Communication is just as important as literacy to teach children
  • Kids are not afraid of being wrong which lets them be more creative
  • Kids will take a chance and if they don’t know something, they will take a go at it and they are not frightened of being wrong
  • If you are not prepared to be wrong you won’t come up with anything original (love that quote)
  • We don’t grow into creativity we grow out of it
  • Schools of today were created in order to meet the needs for industrialism
  • Women tend to be better at multi-tasking (thicker corpus colusum)
  • The story about the girl who was born to dance at the end was great.  Everyone just has to find their passion and what they were born to do
