Why is Creativity Important in Education

Creativity is one of the central themes here in Educational  Technology and Mobile Learning and I have devoted an entire section to everything that has to do with creativity in education, you can check it here to learn more. As you probably know Sir Ken Robinson is one of the pioneer educators who constantly advocate the importance of creativity in education. Of course you still remember his phenomenal " Do Schools Kill Creativity " talk in TED in which he explained how schools are " educating students out of creativity ". I am personally a huge fan of this man and I love his talks and presentations. I have also enjoyed reading two of his books which I have reviewed in earlier posts namely :  Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative  and The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything.

 In this post I am sharing with you another great video of his. Just as is the case in all the other videos, Ken Robinson excels in talking about creativity and in the clip below, he will explain to you wny creativity matters in education and it requires a transformation in the schools work. Accoridng to him, " creativity is not an option, it's an absolute necessity ". I 'll let you now enjoy the video and dont forget to share with us your feedback.

Special thanks to Mindshift  through which I knew about this video.
