Books that inspire

the element Out-of-Our-MindsI was first introduced to Sir Ken Robinson theory on education and creativity through TED talks. I was inspired and moved beyond words.  I am now excited to read these two books by Robinson, “Out of Our Minds” and “The Element: How Finding  your Passion Changes Everything.” Reviews to follow. 

Here are some of my favorite quotes by Sir Ken Robinson;

” My contention is that creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson

“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” – Sir Ken Robinson
