Sir Ken Robinson

Description

A focus on Sir Ken Robinson, former professor of education at Warwick University.

In 1998 Sir Ken led a major government inquiry on creativity, education and the economy. He is now a senior adviser to the J Paul Getty Trust in California.

In this lecture to teachers he argues that the education system cannot face the future by doing better what it did in the past. No one knows what the future holds for young people in school today but it will be very different from the world now.

The traditional hierarchy of subjects with academic subjects at the top and creative subjects at the bottom must be swept away, Sir Ken argues.
