Creativity and Education by Ken Robinson

You’ve read a lot of articles in various blogs with tips and tricks on how to promote your work or discover an area that has always fascinated you. It often happens that you want to go back to school to get a little better education or, if you are still a student, get a degree that best suits your interests, such as economics, business management, etc. the world is constantly changing. and in this ever-changing world, our diplomas are becoming increasingly useless. I didn’t use that word in a stark way, because we all know that what we learn is something that a lot of people have never heard of. “In the coming years, our degrees will definitely lose value as more and more people go to school because technology has allowed more people to go to school,” Ken Robinson said at TED. He adds that this is a time when we need to rethink how we want to raise our children.

Ken Robinson makes a presentation that very comically highlights all the mistakes in our current education system. He states that I guarantee that at some point in your life your creative mindset was hindered by an adult who told you that what you do is not something you should be doing, because it won’t help you find a job while you’re playing or drawing music. No matter how limited the jobs are; creativity is something that is not limited to images and tools. Usually people suppress a child’s creativity from an early age and make him realize that his creative ideas about the world no longer matter. There is no doubt that learning a language or numbers is important, but it is your creativity that brings something new to this concept.

Ken Robinson noted in his presentation that the world is changing faster than ever, and we need to understand that. If we are to succeed, we must keep pace with a changing world. He explains that the program is taught in schools in the same way as it was 50 years ago. Fundamental changes in the education system are needed. The focus is on children’s creativity. He mentions time and time again that today’s children should be encouraged to create, invent, and explore creative possibilities.
