How Do You Define Creativity? Sir Ken Robinson Video Series from Adobe Education

"It's no secret that Adobe thinks creativity needs to be championed so educators can feel increasingly empowered to teach it as a critical competency across all disciplines. We firmly believe creativity is an imperative for students' success in a global marketplace.

Check out the first video where he explores the meaning and natural path of our creative process."
