The Importance of Teaching Creativity in Children (and Why Schools Do the Opposite)

I came across this video from Paper Dali's blog. Thanks, Vee!

It is a funny, easy to watch but thought provoking talk by Sir Ken Robinson on the future of education and creativity for our children. Particularly to the point with school districts cutting art and music and gym as unnecessary expenses to education.

It looks a little dull, but really he is quite witty and added many chuckles to my morning. It also made me appreciate that even though all we did was history and art yesterday, my children's needs are still being met.
