A friend of mine sent me this video link of Sir Ken Robinson a little while back. I just watched it last night and couldn’t stop laughing and pondering in turns. It’s probably the wittiest TEDS talk I’ve heard and leaves us a lot to consider. I hope you enjoy.

Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Bring on the Learning Revolution

The Question: How much of this applies to how we disciple Christians in our churches?

One thought on “Is Creativity in Education as Important as Literacy?”

    How much applies? A LOT! Especially the change of metaphor Robinson proposes at the end of the second video. That’s not really a change for Christians, its the metaphor that God himself establishes. It is seed that is planted and soil that is cultivated. God does the work in the heart of man. It’s the mystery of the seed that dies, and only then lives. Ours is the work of cultivating soil, planting seed, praying, waiting, watering and the reaping the harvest as God produces the fruit. The further we distance ourselves from the industrial model of disciple making the greater will be our dependence upon the Holy Spirit who alone gives life.

    Thanks for this post Thabiti. One of these days we’ll have that discussion about education!
