The Death of Creativity

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

Like Robinson, I think more and more educators are reconsidering the significance of creativity in the learning process. That for many children creativity opens the door to innovation and the ability to interconnect with others is an understatement.

When we are courageous enough to ā€œnourish the gift of human imagination” while recognizing the creative capacity in all children then (and only then) will all children truly receive a quality education. Honoring children where they are is essential in this process. tlb
