In a world beset by economic challenges, cultural discord and environmental deterioration, the English philosopher Sir Ken Robinson believes he has the solution to man’s most fundamental problems: Imagination.
An evolved notion of creativity is humanity’s defining trait, Robinson says, in that it allows us to examine the past as well as anticipate the future to constantly reinvent our lives. But many of us have lost touch with an imaginative outlook.
To more fully tap into this part of ourselves, Robinson takes issue with the state of our educational system — which he asserts “employs 21st century technology, but with a 19th century mindset.” It hasn’t changed much since its inception, he argues, and tends to marginalize our best gifts.Featured Posts, Updates and tagged entrepreneurship, featured, ideas, students.
