Amy Bull's insight:

In a compelling TEDTalks presentation, 'Do Schools Kill Creativity?’ Sir Ken Robinson discusses intelligence, creativity, and the necessity of the arts within schooling. Robinson highlights the traditional public schooling as a product of both industrialisation and academia, of the need to train people for jobs and to attend college, which all ultimately suppress children’s creative capacities. Robinson asserts that schooling that honors creative intelligence, which is diverse, dynamic, and distinct, is necessary. As Robinson (2006) states,

 

Children need math and they need dance and they need to experience and think across disciplinary lines. Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value. … More often than not it comes through the interaction of different interdisciplinary ways of seeing things.

The Sydney Opera House is an inspiring place for the Creative Arts, and is right in the heart of our city of Sydney.

This website allows access to Primary School Education Programs, information about performances and workshops, and plenty of teacher resources. 

 

It is a great website for teachers who may be interested in exploring the Arts, with their students, at the Sydney Opera House.
