I thought that I would share some videos from the TED website that I have found profound and inspirational in my own thinking about creativity and learning.
First, lessons from Itay Talgam, a conductor, about leadership
Second, the remarkable story of Jose Antonio Abreu who is the charismatic founder of a youth orchestra system that has transformed thousands of kids' lives in Venezuela.
Third, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardised schools to personalised learning -- creating conditions where kids' natural talents can flourish.
Finally a clip from the BBC series 'Boys can't sing' with Gareth Malone. I found all of Gareth's series to be very moving and an inspiration to the work I do. He is working with people who,very often, don't feel they are special but begin to explore their creativity through singing and discover hitherto untapped energy and self-worth.
Do you have any others that you could share?
