“If you are not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.”
 
Inspiring education advocate Sir Ken Robinson recently launched a new website at sirkenrobinson.com.
 
Sir Robinson’s talk on creativity and education was one of the very first talks released by TED on the web and has been downloaded over 3.5 million times in over 200 countries, making him an admired expert on creativity, innovation and education. You can view the charming talk here.
