By coincidence I got two emails yesterday, both featuring Sir Ken Robinson. One brought news of the upcoming Earlyarts Annual International Un-Conference, at which Sir Ken is the keynote speaker. The other was from our very own guest blogger Bev Morton with a message saying ‘I think you’ll like this’ – and a link to a presentation by Sir Ken. Well I did like it. I liked it so much I re-played it again today and then I thought I’d pass it on. So here’s the link.
