Sir Ken Robinson does it again in the latest TED Talks. Here is the inimitable author, speaker, educationalist, professor, creativity expert, etc., etc., challenging our views about education and the way schools teach our children. In this brilliant talk he highlights 3 principles that contribute towards human flourishing and how current education models contradict them:
