Ken Robinson: Creativity Expert

We believe Sir Ken is worthy of an individual post dedicated to his work alone. From books, Ted Talks, education policy adviser and media, this education guru is a creator and thinker on what teaching is and should be. Just transfer his discussion on education delivery from the school setting, into the hospital or higher education domain. The opportunity for creativity and imagination is the same. We adults have just forgotten how fun learning is or had it standardised out of us, during our own schooling.

Addendum: Sir Ken Robinson died on 21st August 2020

“The problem with conformity in education is that people are not standardised to begin with” Creative Schools

“We stigmatize mistakes. And we’re now running national educational systems where mistakes are the worst thing you can make — and the result is that we are educating people out of their creative capacities.”
