Description

Ken Robinson is one of the world's most influential voices in education, and his 2006 TED Talk on the subject is the most viewed in the organization's history. Now, the internationally recognized leader on creativity and human potential focuses on one of the most critical issues of our time: how to transform the nation's troubled educational system. At a time when standardized testing businesses are raking in huge profits, when many schools are struggling, and students and educators everywhere are suffering under the strain, Robinson points the way forward. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today's unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. Filled with anecdotes, case histories, and groundbreaking research, Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.

Professional reviews

"Hearing Ken Robinson discuss his vision of a better future for education is as riveting as it is eye-opening. Robinson is authoritative in a way that welcomes listening. You will WANT to hear what he has to say, and follow his cogent overview and approachable examples. Robinson's 2006 TED talk on our schools' killing creativity may have been many listeners' introduction to the British educator's philosophy, but this is not a 17-minute TED talk. Robinson explains and illustrates his points in considerable detail, with his characteristic wit and humor. Listeners will take this audiobook seriously and, as Robinson suggests, be part of the transformation of education. This audiobook should be shared, discussed, and savored by anyone interested in the future of our schools. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
