Do Schools Kill Creativity? by Sir Ken Robinson
Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something new and valuable is formed. The created item may be intangible or a physical object. Scholarly interest in creativity is found in a number of disciplines, primarily psychology, business studies, and cognitive science.
What is Creativity? Anyone who raises children, goes to school, works as an educator and teacher or has ever raised children must have thought about creativity.
And creativity is important, and there are plenty of books and educational supplies to foster creativity. However, if you are not aware of the importance of creativity or if you are approaching it in an ambiguous way, I recommend taking the course below. This lecture is a lecture by an educator Sir Ken Robinson, whose humorous and deeply introspective lectures will change your perspective on creativity little by little.
Sir Ken Robinson was a British author, speaker and international advisor on education in the arts to government, non-profits, education and arts bodies. He was director of the Arts in Schools Project and Professor of Arts Education at the University of Warwick, and Professor Emeritus after leaving the university.
He emphasized the importance of creativity in education. Creativity should be treated with the same status as literacy in education. He was a vocal critic of contemporary educational systems, believing that they educated students to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers.
Most of all, if you listen to his lectures, you can see how our public educational system has created a great kingdom for perfectionists and enjoyed cartel in it.
You will get the answer to the question that education is about acknowledging diversity, learning through dynamic interaction with each other, discovering and developing your own uniqueness and originality.
This is creativity, and it is the mission of public education to foster such creativity and help them live their lives properly. It is also worth noting that the current framework of public education is focused on developing the left brain only due to the demands of industrial society and practicing holistic education.
If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original. By Sir Ken Robinson
