Watch this brilliant video. Creativity is so important in education and in helping children lead fulfilling lives. Creativity is often unexpected and exciting. It involves seeing things in new ways and breaking rules. Creativity may result in something radically different. As Sir Ken Robinson says in the video: "If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never create anything original." Schools are becoming more creative as ideas from the foundation phase (learning by doing) begin to spread through the primary schools, though it would be good to see the ideas integrated more into high schools.
In this video Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
