I really enjoyed this video! As I was watching it I found some of his statements/comments so profound and enlightening that I restarted the video after getting pen and paper to take notes. I know! I should have done that from the start! "If you are not prepared to be wrong you'll never come up with anything original" wow It makes sense to me. "As we grow we are educating ourselves out of creativity" I'm not sure I agree with that statement entirely. I think our creativity as we get older gets redirected or evolves into a more specific/specialized form of creativity where a child may show more areas/fields of creativity because they are still in a discovery mode/stage.
When Ken started talking about Juliana Len and how in todays world she might have been put on medicine for ADHD it hit home because against my will my youngest daughter was put on that drug at the age of two and it made me wonder what creativity we(her parents may have stifled). I must say the medicine does help her focus in class but at what cost to unexplored creativity? Ken's statement "she had to move to think" makes me think that if I'm able to work through this and the other courses to complete my education as a teacher it will have to remember that statement when some of my kids are active at the very least see them with enlightened eyes. That's all I have to say.
