Creativity and innovation

From Clarence Fisher (Remote Access) through Stephen Downes (Old Daily), a wonderful 20-minute videocast (70 zipped mb to download) from TED (Technology Education Design) featuring Sir Ken Robinson. This is an inspired presentation peppered with witty personal anecdotes illustrating kids’ imagination and ingenuity and how the public school system today should encourage and promote creativity, risk-taking and innovation instead of making everyone conform to the same educational academic mold.

Adding (July 31st) another video, which provides variation on the same theme, but in the darkest English black humour. Rowan Atkinson in Fatal Beatings.
