If Education Kills Creativity

I recently came across a TED program titled Ken Robinson says schools kill creativity.  In this talk he states that creativity is as important in today’s schools as literacy.  Well perhaps this is an important lesson for libraries.

If our schools are stifling creativity maybe libraries can encourage it.  Digital media labs offer libraries a great opportunity to create an environment of creativity, of expression, of finding one’s voice.

Also worth noting, intelligence is diverse.  It includes thinking about the world in sound, visually, kinetically, in abstract.  Intelligence is dynamic.  Intelligence is distinct.
