Do schools kill creativity? -  By Sir Ken Robinson | OpenGrowth

In February 2006, at the official TED conference, Sir Ken Robinson was delivering a speech on the gaps in our educational system, the significance of creativity and the numerous types of intelligence which have to be considered. He argues for a revolutionary rethink of our school system. 


Summary of The Topic

Sir Ken Robinson states that creativity is as significant as literacy and that, further, all children are talented and not afraid to be wrong. Mistakes should not be stigmatized but rather be seen as part of the learning procedure. Thus, “if you are not able to be wrong, you will never come up with something original”.

Robinson says that we need to rethink the way we observe intelligence: it is diverse, we believe visually, kinaesthetically, in movement etc. It is dynamic, having actual ideas often comes about through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things and it is distinct. For the recent he illustrates the example of Gillian Lynne, a famous choreographer who was nearly diagnosed with a learning disorder as a child due to her incapacity to sit still in class.

In the end, Robinson pleas to all of us to see “our creative capacities for the richness they are” and to help create an educational system that assists rather than undermines creativity.

Do schools Kill creativity?


The talk is intriguing for everybody who is interested in education or is working in the educational sector. Further it should be fetching for politicians who are the ones who can bring about modifications to the law. Ultimately the talk is engaging for everybody due to the fact that every person in the world should have access to adequate and supporting education.

HOW YOU CAN RECOVER YOUR STOLEN FUNDS NOW I was scammed over ( $275,000 ) by someone I met online on a fake investment project. I started searching for help legally to recover my money, and I came across a lot of Testimonies about HACKER STEVE. I contacted him, providing the necessary information and it took him and his team of experts about 36 hours to locate and help recover my stolen funds. I am so relieved and the best part was, the scammer was located and arrested by local authorities in his region. I hope this helps as many out there who are victims. I strongly recommend Steve professional services for assistance with swift and efficient recovery.

Be careful of people asking for your money or investment platforms promising huge returns. They lure victims into fake programs. I was scammed over ($345,000) by someone I met online on a fake investment project. I started searching for help to recover my money and I came across lots of recommendations on a Bitcoin Forum about RecoveryChef. I contacted him via his email on recoverychef@ techie. com and he helped me recover my stolen funds. If you've also been a victim of financial scams, don't hesitate to get in touch with RecoveryChef. There are millions of victims of financial fraud every year – and the problem is getting worse. Yet, because financial fraud normally occurs out of public view, many victims feel isolated and ashamed. The United States Department of Justice estimates that only 15% of victims of financial fraud report the crime because they are embarrassed, feel guilty or think nothing can be done. It’s typical for victims of financial fraud to experience all these emotions according to Dr. Traci Williams, a board-certified psychologist and certified financial therapist. She adds that victims may also feel angry, violated, anxious, shocked, sad, and hopeless. Moreover, even a small loss can have a profound impact on victims.

Being cheated on really hurts and makes you develop trust issues. You'll get a lot of questions in mind that you want to ask your partner. But then, will he/she answer those, fix it, and start anew, or will just leave you? I knew my husband was cheating through the help of a hacker named Tomcyberghost, I reached out to him at and he spied on his social media accounts, messenger, and even his WhatsApp and text messages. But then, I realized that no matter what, it is up to us to move forward or give that person another chance or several chances to fix it. We need to be wise and love ourselves too. Fighting!
