Cultivating Creativity in Education |
Ottway Ducard stashed this in education
“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”
“All kids have tremendous talents and we squander them pretty ruthlessly.”
“Many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they’re not — because the thing they were good at at school wasn’t valued, or was actually stigmatized.”
“You don’t think of Shakespeare being a child, do you? Shakespeare being seven? He was seven at some point. He was in somebody’s English class, wasn’t he? How annoying would that be?”
Human resources are like natural resources; they’re often buried deep. You have to go looking for them, they’re not just lying around on the surface.

"Our education system has mined our minds in the way that we've strip-mined the earth: for a particular commodity"
