Talk about creativity in education

I hope you all get the chance to watch this. Sir Ken Robinson talks about how we are educating the creativity out of our children. He is brilliant and funny. Enjoy.
Big fan of TED here as well! I subscribe to their podcast and I watch these inspiring talks constantly while flying. Smart people are cool.

In case you haven't seen it, there's a great documentary called ";Touch the Sound"; which is all about Evelyn Glennie and her unique path through music. I was fortunate enough to see this in on of Portland's great local theaters that show these types of films. You can see it on Netflix here:

I HIGHLY recommend his book ";The Element, how finding your passion changes everything";
TED is Great!! I will definitely take a look at this when time permits.

There is so much great stuff on TED (and it's not blocked by my school district's firewalls!).
