Sir Ken Robinson questions what the roles of educational institutions are today. Not related to cloud technologies but brings up good points about education.

Kelsey Anderson's curator insight, November 5, 2013 8:06 PM

I could listen to this podcast over and over again. Sir Ken Robinson is a witty and charming British man who’s unique insight about education is unarguable. The segment is about the lack of creativity in today’s education system and the disservice this void creates for our students. Robinson defines creativity as a “fundamental set of capacities that distinguish us human beings” and as the “process of original ideas that have value.” In the pod cast, Robinson argues that our school system inherently stifles creativity and promotes conformity. He believes our school system should be de”industrialized” and more “personalized.” This “revolutionary” personalization of our education system would view the arts as of equal importance to literacy. This pod cast episode is something every educator should listen to and consider. I have always believed in creativity in the classroom, but hearing Sir Ken Robinson’s opinions confirmed and furthered my passion about encouraging student to be creative in a variety of subjects.
