Sir Ken Robinson on Escaping the Death Valley of Education

If you missed it when it was shown on public TV, be sure to watch the video by Sir Ken Robinson on Escaping the Death Valley of Education. There are two reasons to watch this. First, he is an outstanding communicator and it is just good to learn from the best. It is amazing how many communication tools he uses in a few short minutes.

Second, he has some very significant things to say about education. Three main principles are (1) Diversity in those who learn, (2) the power of Curiosity for learning, and (3) Creativity. He believes that current education works against all three of these essential qualities.
