Do schools kill creativity?

Now that FIBA Asia is over, we no longer have basketball games to watch. So my husband and I have returned to our old routine of watching silly videos on the internet. Patrick whipped out his iPad and we watched about 6 episodes of Just for Laughs Quebec while munching on our frozen lychee jelly. But in between watching shallow “don’t think, just watch” videos, Patrick told me to watch this video with him and I was blown away! If you’re a parent, I encourage you to watch this. If you’re a fresh grad struggling with your career choices, watch this too. 🙂 I’m very fortunate to be a college teacher in a department that encourages creativity and innovation—but I feel for those who have been stuck in a rut, going through an identity crisis, and/or losing all hope in themselves just because they have been taught to think less of their natural gifts. I hope this video inspires you just as much as it has inspired me.
