Thank goodness for Twitter. It brought this video, of Sir Ken Robinson (creativity in education expert) to my co-worker Natalie, who passed it along to me. In it, he challenges the whole structure of the education system, asking “What are we educating our children to do?” And shouldn’t we instead be asking “what should we be educating them to create?”

There’s a great story, about 2/3 of the way in, where he talks to a famous dancer about how she became a dancer. The punchline is priceless. Take a look.
