“ 'How Schools Kill Creativity' by Sir Ken Robinson is the top most watched TED Talk.” - Techcrunch
A visionary cultural leader, Sir Ken Robinson led the British government's 1998 advisory committee on creative and cultural education, a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, and was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 for his achievements. His 2006 TED talk “How Schools Kill Creativity” has been viewed 33 million times and is the most watched talk in TED history. Vanity Fair said of Sir Ken’s now famous TED engagement, “[he]gave voice to what so many of us are living through: our schools are failing to recognize creativity; we’re failing to prepare the next generation for the challenges that lie ahead.” Through his best-selling books, talks, and research, Sir Ken explores the development and importance of creativity, innovation, and human resources in education, business, and in one’s own life.Management Website Artist Website Video Photos
