According to Wikipedia Sir Ken Robinson is an English author, speaker, and international advisor on education in the art. I’m a big fan. I could rant for a very long time about education, engagement, why creativity is important, why specifying mark scheme and sometimes assessment itself is a bad thing and how learning is not something that is done to you, but I won’t.

Instead I’ll just post this link to another great TED talk from Sir Ken Robinson.

I’m lucky, because I get a lot of freedom in what I do. Sometimes I get it wrong, and sometimes I hope I get it right. Rob thinks that we’re doing something right simply because we worry about this sort of thing, which is comforting.

I hope you enjoy the video.
