Tony Buzan, bestselling author on improving memory and brain power, argues that schools should change the way they teach children in order to increase creativity.
In this lecture to an audience of teachers, Tony, the man credited with creating the 'Mind Map', explains how schools are depriving children of their innate ability to think creatively.
Tony suggests that creativity declines in people as they go through the education system. He argues that the key to stopping this is to teach children how to learn and think at the same time as they are being taught the basics. Tony believes the focus of education should shift from teaching what people need to learn to teaching people how to learn.
This is part of a series of Gurus programmes in which leading educational thinkers set out their vision for the future of our schools.
