The Death of Innovation

This video is a few years old now. In fact, we first watched it in 2007 or 2008 before our kids even started attending school. The idea that creativity is just as important as literacy is one that I subscribe to wholeheartedly. If you are not prepared to be wrong, or refuse to ever be wrong then you will never come up with anything original. So if our educational systems are too formulaic and focus too much on eliminating mistakes and always getting the right answers then we effectively institutionalize what is the opposite of innovation.  Anyhow, if you haven’t seen this and are curious about intelligence, creativity, ideas and educational systems give this a watch.
