The following TED talk is Selwyn Milborrow’s favourite because:

I am a creative person and find Sir Ken Robinson a fascinating person. His TED talks is amazing and filled with his trademark humour. I join with Sir Robinson in asking ‘Why don’t we get the best out of people?’ He argues that it’s because we’ve been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies, far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity are ignored or even stigmatised, with terrible consequences. “We are educating people out of their creativity,” Robinson says. My goal is also to encourage creativity and young people pioneering us into a better and brighter future.
