No Room for Creativity in Schools?

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design), is website which is home to over 200 conferences you can view via video.

The video I want to point out today is by Sir Ken Robinson titled “Do Schools Kill Creativity?” TED describes his talk as the following:

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. With ample anecdotes and witty asides, Robinson points out the many ways our schools fail to recognize — much less cultivate — the talents of many brilliant people. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. The universality of his message is evidenced by its rampant popularity online. A typical review: “If you have not yet seen Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk, please stop whatever you’re doing and watch it now.”

You can view his speech below:

Do you agree with Sir Ken Robinson, are your college courses adapting to your highly creative major of interior design? Are we adapting to industry trends appropriately?

  2. YES and NO.
    YES, mainly those who are talented in Mathematics, Languages or Sciences
    NO, who are talented in Dance or any Arts.
