Sir Ken Robinson argues in his TED Talk “Do Schools Kill Creativity?” that the industrial assembly line approach to our current educational system kills creativity. Our educational system was devised in the 1800s and deeply influenced by the industrial revolution. We are now in the 21st century and live in the internet age, information age, and the knowledge age. Our learning environments and our educational systems should be redesigned to reflect these realities.
These talks by Ken Robinson are some of my favorite TED Talks of all time.
