Do schools kill creativity?

As a student at OCAD, the University of the Imagination, I wouldn’t think so here. But creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson says that we are “educating people out of their creativity” and explains why on many levels.

In his both funny and critical TEDTalk, Robinson makes interesting points about creating an education system that nurtures, instead of undermines, creativity. Watch the video below (or click here to see it on YouTube).

Think about this: If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you can’t come up with anything new. Because we start off as children being taught not to make mistakes, we’re essentially taught out of creativity. This is what Robinson is talking about changing.
