In our recent International Baccalaureate IB staff training, we were treated to the below video in which Sir Ken Robinson’s brilliant TEDtalk is illustrated via RSA. While it needs little introduction, it is worth noting that Sir Ken Robinson is described on the TED site as . . .

A visionary cultural leader, Sir Ken led the British government’s 1998 advisory committee on creative and cultural education, a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy, and was knighted in 2003 for his achievements. His 2009 book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, is a New York Timesbestseller and has been translated into 21 languages. A 10th anniversary edition of his classic work on creativity and innovation, Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative, was published in 2011. His latest book, Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life, will be published by Viking in May 2013.

While much of what he talks about is par for the course at CLC, we are excited to see yet another reason our implementation of the IB Middle Years Programme makes such good sense. We continue to weave ourselves into an international community dedicate to transforming students’ lives and learning by being student centered, first and foremost.

Watch the below video for Sir Ken’s vision, insights, and ideas — you won’t be disappointed that you did.
