My wife, Kelley, and I watched this last night and laughed our brains out. It was incredibly profound and helpful. Kelley as an educator and I as a faith creative see similar failed imagination in public education and Christian discipleship, commitment to a literacy that moves the learner out of her body and to above their shoulders, and slightly to one side. This speaker, Ken Robinson, says in the following video "We are now educating people out of their creative capacities... we don't grow into creativity... we get educated out of it."
In her book, On Beauty and Being Just, Elaine Scarry writes that the "willingness to continually revise one's own location in order to place oneself in the path of beauty is the basic impulse underlying education" (7). And yet education must step into an unpredictable path, taking risk.
Sir Ken Robinson gives a great 20 minute talk at TED regarding creativity's importance in education. Take the 20 minutes and enjoy!
