Sir Robinson’s video on creativity and learning is quite thought provoking. In it he makes a statement that is particularly relevant to the idea of educational design. He says, “Creativity is as important as literacy.” He goes on to explain how this will become of great importance as we rethink education in the future for our children. In reflecting on my own educational experiences, I agree with his description of the current educational hierarchy, with the arts at the bottom and math and sciences at the top. With a personal preference toward creativity, I often found myself struggling with the emphasis on academic performance. Even though I did not always apply myself as I should, this helps explain my ambiguity regarding some of my past educational experiences. This is especially relevant as I contemplate what educational design should look like for our children in the future. I am challenged to think how I might equally cultivate my child’s talents in math and sciences, as well as in the arts. Admittedly, my son demonstrates strengths in the areas of math and science but he also demonstrates a true love for art and music. Listening to this video, really challenges me to contemplate what I can do to avoid squandering the talents of my son, as well as what I can do to contribute to the educational design of young adults in the future to stimulate imagination and creativity in their learning experiences.
