I Know You've Got 20 Minutes

So I won't threaten to smother you with your pillow while you sleep. (which I thought by the way, was a brilliant way to get blog readers to watch it) Sir Ken Robinson is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources. He challenges the way we're educating our children and champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

Sir Ken has advised national governments in Europe and Asia and works with international agencies, Fortune 500 companies, not-for-profit corporations and some of the world's leading cultural organizations.

So, before you press play (and by the way if you are a parent or soon to be will benefit from this) get yourself a nice glass of wine, or hot cup of tea and a notebook to doodle your creative reactions. Then let me know.

My kid's school has changed the entire way they teach high school because of this awesomely inspiring speech.

I think this man should be hired to help write Obama's speeches. The adorable factor is very high, too.


Adorable indeed. Wouldn't you just love to have dinner with him? I'd leave my food and pick his brain.

Singin' to the choir, Sister! he nailed this perfectly (and he is adorable!)My younger kids go to a school based on the theory of multiple intelligence...the older graduated from a performing arts school. YES we need to embrace this!!

Billionaire Warren Buffett told congressional negotiators that if they can't agree on a proposed financial bailout, the nation will face "its biggest financial meltdown in American history." I want to know this, should 'Baked' have financial business trouble in the future, will the President bail them out too. Come to think of it, I could use some money now.
