The Late Sir Ken Robinson found his ideas on education resonate with the world when his 2006 TED Talk gradually became the most viewed talk in the history of TED, with more than 65 million views.
A gifted speaker, Sir Ken Robinson used his wit and charm, apart from humour and storytelling, to engage his audience without using presentation slides or visual aids.
Sir Ken Robinson was a known voice in subjects like creativity, education and human potential even before the video “Why Schools Kill Creativity", but this famous TED Talk introduced his impressive public-speaking skills to an even bigger audience.
In his crisp, humorous and engaging speech, Sir Ken Robinson points out the glaring flaws in the current education system, which is only concerned about grading and conformity and does not nurture the creativity of children.
"I heard a great story recently of a little girl who was in a drawing lesson. She was six, and she was at the back, drawing…the teacher was fascinated. She went over to her, and she said, “What are you drawing?” And the girl said, “I’m drawing a picture of God.” And the teacher said, “But nobody knows what God looks like.” And the girl said, “They will, in a minute.” "
