Ezzie's Favorite Video

This is still my favorite video: Sir Ken Robinson at the TED convention in Monterrey, California a couple of years ago discussing parenting, education, childhood, and creativity. After the comments on the post below, I decided it was worth reposting. It's absolutely brilliant.


  1. OMG, what an incredible speech! I'm so glad that you posted the video. I have seen this over and over again with my own students. Children who think differently are repeatedly punished instead of accomodated. EVERY child has some sort of ability, gift, or talent-that is, until short-sighted adults squash it.

  2. This is one of my favorites, as well, I just mentioned it this past shabbos to a guest.

  3. We're going through re-runs already???
    jk, good stuff!

  4. Teacher724 - Exactly. :)

    David - Heh. I just did a few times recently to people...

    Rea - Thanks

  5. Ezzie, are you trying to tell us you want to be a dancer? :-D

  6. Thank you, Ezzie, for posting this, and many of the other quality links in your recent posts. I have been using your blog as a starting point for most of the afternoon. Y

    This was wonderful, thank you.
