Authors: Sir Ken Robinson and Lou Aronica
It's been 11 years since Sir Ken Robinson gave the TED talk on the topic 'Do School's Kill Creativity?' which went viral. The TED talk “has been viewed online more than 40 million times in over 160 countries”* and has become the most watched TED talk in the history.
He is keeping up with his tradition also in the featured book, where the provided examples are inspiring and humorous, and at the same time highlighting some of the biggest challenges schools face today (e.g. standardization, industrial educational system). “Creative Schools” highlights some of the biggest challenges schools face today (e.g. standardization, industrial educational system). Once you have a clear idea of the issues, it takes you on a journey to schools that took a very different approach to bring out the best in their students. Sir Ken Robinson explains how school systems can be transformed on different levels and how every person (teachers, parents, school directors, policy makers, etc.) can contribute to this change. The examples he provides are inspiring while his humorous style of writing makes you laugh. With standardisation becoming increasingly common, it is worth taking a look at his point of view.
