Sir Ken Robinson: Fostering Creativity in Education is Not an Option ... | PLNs for ALL | Scoop.it
Innovative ideas - projects, processes, curricula, and more - that are transforming how we teach and learn. ... require a transformation in the way schools work. In his words, “Creativity is not an option, it's an absolute necessity.

Kevin Biles's insight:

Powerful message that challenges traditional instructional mindset and process for measuring.  Why are we testing one way but employers looking for students that are more collaborative and creative??

Justine Hughes's curator insight, January 15, 2013 5:12 AM

It would be a wise thing for anyone involved in education to take on board Sir Ken's thinking - it is sound and makes sense and may just help us to re-engage our students - and ourselves, perhaps.

eduPLEX's comment, January 26, 2013 12:10 AM
Totally agree with Ken, in every way. Students can put their own personal branding when they complete challenges using their creativity, and collaborating with their peers. www.eduplex.com.au

Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.
