A popular TED talk presented in 2006 by Sir Ken Robinson, who believes that many schools today are “educating kids out of creativity” instead of nurturing it. In this 20-minute talk filled with engaging anecdotes, Robinson makes the case for a new paradigm education if schools are to prepare children for a future that is uncertain, and proposes that an education system built around recognizing multiple intelligences, and the creative capacities of children, one that educates the whole-being, is a critical part of the solution.

Sir Ken Robinson presents a follow-up talk at TED in 2010 (click here for details).
