I enjoy Sir Ken Robinson’s work and have been a fan of his ever since seeing him speak at the Scottish Learning Festival in September 2005. His key note speech back in 2005 inspired me to read his book “Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative” and I went on to read his next book “The Element” when it was published last year. If you have not read “Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative” and you are interested in creativity and thinking differently in education then you must read it.
Rather than just showing the pre-recorded videos they were complimented and interspersed with input from Richard Gerver. Richard has worked with Sir Ken Robinson a lot over the years and they made a pretty good double act. Richard is a former headteacher himself and made a good introduction to the conference.
