In his latest work, Ken Robinson makes the case for tapping our advanced technological capital—and creativity—to foster learning and to revamp public education systems. Creativity, he says, is essential to innovative thinking. Through Creative Schools, he offers persuasive evidence, including stories from education’s frontlines, that students, teachers and societies benefit from a curriculum centered on creativity capability rather than standardized learning and assessment.
KEN ROBINSON, Ph.D., has worked with governments and education systems internationally, focused on the themes of creativity and innovation. His 2006 TED talk was the most viewed in TED’s history; he was knighted in recognition for his services to the arts and, in America, earned the Imagination Award from the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation and the Peabody Medal.
