Thanks to holiday browsing time I came across TED. One of the first videos was a long but entertaining talk by Ken Robinson about schools killing creativity. He doesn’t point the finger at teachers rather the creation of schools in the 19th century to meet the needs of industrialism. How many of us were steered away from creative pursuits as kids and told don’t take music at school because you won’t be a musician when you grow up. I won’t give this ‘benign’ advice to my students anymore!

By the way, I will be thoroughly exploring the TED talks. Very inspiring.
