Education Expert, Sir Ken Robinson, on Creativity and Changing Educational Paradigms

While now nearly three years old, the animated video below - taken from a speech given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education expert and recipient of the RSA Benjamin Franklin award - still reflects the crisis in our current education system. In this animated rendering of Ken Robinson's talk, Robinson challenges the way the current public school system works and lays out the link between 3 troubling trends: rising drop-out rates, schools' dwindling stake in the arts, and ADHD. Download a transcript of this video (pdf). Ken Robinson champions a radical rethink of our school systems in order to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
