Lucy introduced me to Ken Robinson this week (alas, not personally, but through a Youtube video). According to Wikipedia:
“Sir Kenneth Robinson (born 4 March 1950) is an English author, speaker, and international advisor on education in the arts to government, non-profits, education, and arts bodies. He was Director of The Arts in Schools Project (1985–89), Professor of Arts Education at the University of Warwick (1989–2001), and was knighted in 2003 for services to education.”
He is not only knowledgable, “outside the box,” and revolutionary in his thinking on education, he is also funny. In another life he might have been a comedian. I found this video very enjoyable and inspiring. I hope you do too.
