Revolutionary change requires creative approaches to wrestle with complex and unique challenges. Organizations of all types seek people who can think creatively, invent innovative solutions and adapt to a changing world. Creativity and innovation expert Sir Ken Robinson – whose TED talk, Do Schools Kill Creativity?, garnered one of the largest audiences of all time – cautions that mass education systems designed to produce workers for the industrial age don’t prepare students to meet new world challenges. He advocates a full-scale transformation of education systems on the premise that intelligence and the creative process are “diverse, dynamic and distinct.” This is a scholarly exploration of the evolution of mass education and attitudes toward intelligence and creativity. getAbstract recommends this updated edition of Robinson’s thesis to educators, human resource professionals, and corporate and community leaders.
