If you haven’t had the treat of watching any of the TED talks, you’re missing out. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design and started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from
those three worlds.
annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating
thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives
(in 18 minutes).
TED has made selections from each conference available online for free. The topics cover an amazing range of topics and are incredibly inspiring.
In this particular talk, Sir Ken Robinson gives a wonderfully entertaining talk on how Western education systems don’t cater well to creativity in children and what we can do to counteract their influence.
