Picasso once said that “all people are born artists, and the problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.” Sir Robinson argues that if you are not prepared to be wrong – you will never come up with anything original. And that by the time kids turn into adults, they loose (or rather are taught out of) their creative capacity. Schools teach them to be frightened of being wrong.
This entertaining and thought provoking video is a must see for every parent, teacher, and obviously students interested in their own education.
