TED talk to address education culture

Latest Video

The next TED Talk for the Ocean City Public Library will take place from 11 a.m. to noon June 8.

Sir Ken Robinson outlines three principles crucial for the human mind to flourish, and how current education culture works against them. He tells how to get out of the educational "Death Valley" we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibil-ity.

Creativity expert Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. He champions a radical rethinking of our school systems to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

A discussion will follow the showing of a 20-minute video. All TED talks are free and open to the public.
