Great video. Sir Ken has a great way of getting his message across. Found this on TED.com blog. I do love TED.com. Great stuff on there. Just a pity the TED conferences are so expensive to go to, but thankfully they post the videos for us mere mortals. Enjoy…

Have any of you read anything by, or video of Sir Ken Robinson? I have an app, TED.com, and while browsing the talks happened across one of Sir Kens’ talks.

Although, I suppose the idea that any government would be willing to put someone with such views in a position of power at this stage would be naive.
He makes so much sense, there should be a radical change in the education systems of the world. I have been saying this for some time. Obviously not as clearly or as articulate as Sir Ken does, and to be fair, I have never really thought about what would be the best way, I just felt that the education system was not working.
