Book Review: Out of Our Minds: Learning to be Creative (Ken Robinson)

I’ve ordered a hard copy – I already view screens for too many hours a day and refuse to do any serious reading on one! I picked the book because I was super impressed with Ken’s TED talk on education (view below). From the book reviews it sounds like his recently updated book was the basis for his TED talk on education (past, present, future), creativity & globalization. Sometimes I feel like phrases like “21st century learning” sound good but are a little short on substance. It was obvious from his TED talk though Ken has a meaningful message for educators. I’m excited to read what he has to say!

This is also the first time I’ve blogged before! I’m not sure exactly what I’m “supposed” to say. Hopefully my errant thoughts will do!

    Did I put this the right spot? I’m not sure how this works…..

  2. Absolutely, Scott. Thanks for taking the initiative and being the first poster. I’m glad you chose Sir Ken’s book; it was one I considered choosing myself. I think, if nothing else, this book will give you (and our team) significant insight into why schools need to adapt in the 21st century. I can’t wait to hear what you think about it!
