The Missing Puzzle Piece in Education
Sir Ken Robinson's Creative Education Speech Demands Change

By: Jaime Neely (Rockstar) Jan 4, 13

In this creative education Speech, the iconic Sir Ken Robinson discusses the shortcomings in today’s school systems. He begins his speech by emphasizing the creative capacities that exist in every human being. Most people, however, operate on a very limited conception of creativity and intelligence and assume they don’t possess the creativity similar to that of artists or gifted individuals. 

Robinson attributes this to the landscape of today’s education system. There are two worlds—that which exists outside ourselves and that which exists inside ourselves. Robinson argues that education focuses on the former. The future well-being of the world depends on understanding the world within us. The conformity, standardization and compliance that characterize today’s system are holding students back from exercise the creative capacities they all possess.

Robinson’s creative education speech suggests that schools dismiss their linear programs and regulations and instead embrace technology to enable students to personalize and customize their learning experience.
