Sir Ken Robinson (Exclusively WSB)

National education systems worldwide are being reformed to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. As a respected adviser to governments in Europe, Asia and the United States, Sir Ken argues in this powerful presentation that many countries are pushing reforms in the wrong direction and that the dominant culture of standardization and testing is stifling the very capabilities that our children, communities and economies need most. Drawing from his groundbreaking books, Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative, and Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution that's Transforming Education, he explains why too many are locked into a model of education shaped by the Industrial Revolution and a narrow idea of academic ability. Urging schools and colleges everywhere to rethink their basic assumptions about intelligence and achievement, Sir Ken focuses on the vital questions: Why is it essential to promote creativity?

Is everyone creative or just a select few? Why do so many adults think they’re not creative? Can creativity be developed? If so, what changes are needed in our schools and education systems and how can they be brought about? Sir Ken argues for radical changes in how we educate all students to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century. Takeaways include:

  • How education wastes more talent than it saves
  • The three core objectives of 21st Century education
  • Why we’re all smarter than we think
  • Why we need to move from an industrial to an organic approach to education
  • What educators, parents and employers should do and how policy makers should help
