How intelligent are you? vs. How are you intelligent?

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.
