I first watched this presentation by Sir Ken Robinson at TED over a year ago. I've since watched it multiple times and his message has stuck with me. It is on creativity and education. He makes a compelling case for the idea that school, within its current structure, kills creativity.

In my opinion, Sir Ken is also one of the more brilliantly entertaining speakers around. I hope you will take a moment out of your busy day and watch. Especially if you currently work in the education system.

I LOVE this presentation. Beyond the fantastic content, I continue to be shocked by how funny he was able to make a talk about education.

That's something I should have be clearer on when I posted. His entertaining style I was talking about was his humor. He makes it so easy to listen to him.
