Remember the TED talk -- "Do Schools Kill Creativity?" -- that grabbed so many educators' attention last year?
If you could grab Sir Ken Robinson for a few minutes, what would you ask him?
Been thinking about that a lot the last 24 hours ever since a friend asked me what I'd ask him.
We've both seen Sir Ken speak. Both had a chance to talk with him one-on-one, too. And both been inspired by his larger thinking about creativity, schools, and learning. Especially with an eye on where all this edu-talk is headed.
So. If you could ask Sir Ken one question to bridge the gap between big ideas and legit action, what would it be?
Well, I'd ask Ken to point to a few schools, a few projects, a few teachers that ARE inspiring creativity (esp. given that it's so gosh-darn easy to swing conversation the other way).
