Education

What's the best thing about being Sir Ken Robinson?

This week, Sir Ken Robinson was awarded the Benjamin Franklin Medal by the UK’s RSA (the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce). At the ceremony, he gave a lecture on education and creativity — followed by a lively Q&A where he made several new and bold suggestions. You can download audio of the lecture and Q&A; the RSA plans to post video as well. (After listening to Sir Ken’s Q&A, blogger Tim Stahmer from Assorted Stuff makes the call: Sir Ken for Secretary of Education.)

And thanks to Ewan McIntosh’s edu.blogs.com for this: Student reporters from the Radiowaves project caught up with Sir Ken Robinson at the London International Music Show last week and shot this video interview with him, followed by commentary by the young interviewers on what education and music mean to them >>
