Got 20 minutes?

Watching this clip was how I started my first day back from holidays, and I am ready to shout HALLELUJAH from the rooftops!

Please join my excitement by watching this fabulous TED conference presentation by Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?

It encourages education systems to see children in a different light and recognize the whole child. Fantastic viewing for all teachers and parents.

    I am one of those children who fiddled in school. I am now 45. My teachers failed to recognize my need for slow and steady focus on one idea for longer periods of time. I need to take time to understand something inside and out, before I move on to something else. They thought I was a “slow learner”. They just passed me through the system. Today I am an inventor. I make a living from ideas. My most current project is a Music League For Adults. We’re working hard to give back to adults what was snatched from them in school. The gift of music. In the League Of Rock adults are given license to be as wildly creative as they possibly can.
    Creativity is the most valuable asset we have and Sir Ken nailed it. Kudos.
