Sir Ken Robinson on creativity

The RSAMD was privileged to host a keynote speech on creativity by Sir Ken Robinson today, Tuesday 8th March 2011. Ken mentioned various books during his wide-ranging and highly engaging speech. "Whittaker" thought followers of WhittakerLive might like to follow up these references. We've got Ken's own books, but we'll be ordering the others mentioned:-
  • Ray Kurzweill - The singularity is near: when humans transcend biology
  • Mattheu Ricard - Happiness: a guide to developing life's most important skill
  • Ken Robinson - Out of our minds
  • Ken Robinson - All our futures
  • Eckhart Tolle - The Power of now

We can't offer you a recording of Ken's presentation, but you can be inspired by other speeches that Ken has given in the past, on YouTube.

RSAMD staff and students may like to read Andy Dougan's posting about the keynote presentation, on Moodle.
