Ken Robinson is one of the world's most influential voices in education. His talk 'How Schools Kill Creativity' is the most viewed in the history of TED and has been seen by millions of people all over the world. In Creative Schools he sets out his practical vision for how education can be transformed to enable all young people to flourish and succeed in the twenty-first century.
In this inspiring, empowering book, Robinson argues for an end to the outmoded, industrial systems of mass schooling and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today's unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students and develop their individual abilities and love of learning.
Written with Robinson's trademark wit and engaging style, and filled with practical examples, anecdotes and ground-breaking research, Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents and policymakers alike to be part of the change our children urgently need.
