Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?
Off to teach music to over 120 Primary School children today of the 900+ I teach a week. Teaching classes of 30 at a time I have them currently in mini-groups of 3 - 5. They have to come up with their own band name ("Death Ray", "Sonny and the Panthers", "The Watsons", "Best Friends for Ever"...). They are given a range of instruments and must come up with their own piece. They perform in turn at session end and other groups feedback their thoughts. Each session is introduced with information from me to support their creativity, understanding and learning. What they produce, experience and learn is enormous and multi-faceted. Just watched this talk for the first time. It underpins all that I see and hear in my facilitation of children's creativity.
