What Sir Ken Robinson Says

January 24, 2023

There are some people I can listen to all day any day.

Dr Heather Cox Richardson is one of those people: in her weekly politics chats or history talks, she connects the dots between current politics, culture, and history. Listening to her helped me get through the previous administration during the pandemic years — and helped me keep me sane AND my kitchen clean. 

Sir Ken Robinson is another person I love to listen to: he connects the dots between creativity and education. He helps me think about learning in new ways, both to understand myself as a learner and to be a better teacher. He’s funny and I admire his quick wit. 


Sir Ken Robinson’s TED talk above from 2006 is one of the most popular ever, with 74,467,001 views as of 1/24/23 on the TED site and millions more on YouTube.. 

This Royal Society of Arts animated the talk he gave linked to below which has generated 17,226,968 views on YouTube since it was first published on Oct 14, 2010.

What stands out to you about what he has to say? What resonates the most? What solutions does he suggest and how can we get there? What questions does he raise for you? Why do you think his ideas are so popular? How can you apply what he says to your own teaching and learning?
