By now you will, of course, have seen one of Ken Robinson’s TED talks on education and creativity. You might not, however, have seen this one, delivered to the RSA last year, and beautifully animated by Cognitive Media.
It’s good to have people like Ken Robinson out there talking about the things he talks about. I never thought I would become interested in education, but I am. It’s too important and fascinating for me not to be.

A particular highlight from my visit to the University of Nottingham’s School of the Built Environment summer show were panels relating to Noah’s Ark Nursery School in Jouberton (~ 150km south of Johannesburg. South Africa) designed and built by second year undergraduate students at the school. Professor Michael Stacey, of the University of Nottingham, discusses the school in this week’s BD. My understanding is that the nursery represents the first of a new programme of student projects, and I will be following Nottingham’s progress with interest.
