How to escape education’s death valley – Sir Ken Robinson

Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish, and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational “death valley” we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

There are three principles, on which human life flourishes, and they are contradicted by the culture of education under which most teachers have to labor and most students have to endure.

  1. Principle 1
    Humans are naturally different and diverse.
  2. Principle 2
    Curiosity makes humans learn almost without further assistance.
  3. Principle 3
    Humans are inherently creative.
