More On the Need to Play . . . Fueling Your Creative Quotient

Last week, I talked to you about The National Institute for Play.  Well, today I have an amazing video for you to watch: Sir Ken Robinson (funny, entertaining, smart as a whip) discussing whether schools are killing creativity (the answer is, sadly, yes).  This speech is from the TED conference a couple of years ago. It’s about 20 minutes long and well worth the time. In fact, you’ll probably watch it at least twice before forwarding it to all your friends – it’s that good.
