Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than ... all » undermining it. With ample anecdotes and witty asides, Robinson points out the many ways our schools fail to recognize -- much less cultivate -- the talents of many brilliant people. "We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says. The universality of his message is evidenced by its rampant popularity online. A typical review: "If you have not yet seen Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk, please stop whatever you're doing and watch it now."

This is a fabulous video. I actually have it on the front page of my personal website. It is, as Mike says, a "must see."

By the way. The video I have on my site is from Ted Talks which is a great resource for engaging and motivations talks (they have almost 200 online FREE videos).

http://www.ted.com/talks

One of the most recent is a talk by Alan Kay...."A powerful idea about teaching ideas."

Enjoy!
