I found this interesting clip of a speech from a conference on creativity. It's a 20 minute video, but well worth the time. He makes many interesting points about how necessary creativity is in success (business, life, etc), and questions if our current methods of education are fostering creativity or squishing it.
Here's the synopsis from the YouTube clip:
"A must-see for every parent and teacher. Education guru Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it. Sir Ken Robinson is author of "Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative," and a leading expert on innovation in education and business. (Recorded February, 2006 in Monterey, CA.)"
