Creativity in Education

Education systems around the world must change to unleash young people’s creativity. Our education system is based on the needs of the 19th century and we need to start teaching creativity instead of giving children mere knowledge. If you want knowledge, go to Google! It does not matter what you know, but what you do with what you know.

The culture of the classroom is passivity and consumption, while we need initiative, innovation and team effort. The school system measures individual knowledge in separate subjects, while true achievement and innovation happens across the boundaries of disciplines and through critical thinking, collaboration, communication and problem solving.

Long live the innovation economy!
