Oh, man.

I could get lost on this site for hours. I mentioned TED.com on this other blog post about an unlikely unschooling advocate.

Here is another awesome video by a big thinker. Even if you don’t agree, watch anyway and I promise you’ll enjoy it. This guy is hilarious!

The topic of the talk is how our education system kills creativity. How it overvalues certain skills and intelligences and completely ignores and devalues others, to our society’s detriment.

Great quotes from the talk:

We are educating people out of their creativity.”

If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”

All children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.”

– Picasso
