Do Schools Kill Creativity

Do Schools Kill Creativity

A wonderful Ted Talk by Sir Ken Robinson. “Mistakes are the worst thing you can make and the result is we are educating people out of their creative capacities… we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it, or rather, we get educated out of it.” – Robinson

I think marks (grades, letters, percentages) are a culprit of killing creativity. We need to find a way to make students see learning as an intrinsic reward and mistakes need to be part of that learning.
