Jenn G. at Unboundary sent me this video of Sir Ken Robinson’s 20-minute talk at Zeitgeist 2012.
A few of the highlights for me occur as Robinson detailed:
- conformity vs. diversity
- compliance vs. creativity
- organized vs. organic
- how creative are you? vs. how are you creative?
- how intelligent are you? vs. how are you intelligent?
We must all work together to ensure that education – and “education” is much more all-encompassing than just formalized school – is consistently moving further to the right column.
Robinson concluded with this quote from H.G. Wells:
Civilization is a race between education and catastrophe.
