Creativity in the Schools

I wanted to share this interesting TEDtalk by creativity expert, Sir Ken Robinson, in which he challenges the way we are educating our children.  He advocates for a radical reimagining of our school system so we may cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligences. He raises the point that we are educating our children for an unknown future.  We have no idea how to prepare then for what the future will hold because we have no idea what the future WILL hold.  He champions teaching creativity and problem solving as the most effective means of equipping children for adulthood.  It is definitely an interesting listen!
