Wonderful. It’s been around a while – but worth remembering the value of creativity.

  2. Hi, I am so glad I finally located other ‘fans’ of Sir Ken Robinson and his ideas. I used to be a machine operator in the engineering industry the in north of England. That was 25 years ago. Since that time, I have been to university, got two degrees to help me teach my language, and have taught English in 7 different countries. I have two books published, had a plethora of other stuff published, and a ton of writing unpublished or on blogs. At school, my ability to write was encouraged, but of course, coming from a working class family, i had to get an apprenticeship – writing had to wait. Think how fortunate I am to find myself ‘in the zone’, doing what I love – writing.

    Sir Ken is absolutely right about education – we need to throw out the Gradgrind model and infuse our youngsters with our own and their own enthusiasm.
    Many, many thanks
    Sincerely
    Rob Fielding

  3. Thanks for stopping by and sharing – it’s an inspiring story!

    I know, watching my own kids and how much fun they have being creative, that it’s a wonderful talent to have. It’s something to be nurtured, cherished and allowed freedom of expression.

    The world will be a better place for it.
