Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

But what exactly is education?

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves.[1] Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.

Now the information and technology are shaping our lives in a fast environment which is transforming our goals and ways to achieve them. This transition is moving faster than the education system in place so we have to adjust our new reality to achieve the best results but are we ready?

The education system was based on the industrial revolution to use standard citizens to perform the tasks needed in that society, so we have to adjust the real needs into the actual education and make them possible.

What does it mean when someone calls you smart or intelligent? According to developmental psychologist Howard Gardner, it could mean one of eight things. In this video interview, Dr. Gardner addresses his eight classifications for intelligence: writing, mathematics, music, spatial, kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal.

Ira Elshansky grew up in Moscow, Russia. After two years at Moscow State Textile University, in 2010 Ira moved to Israel and studied animation at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Her films “Connection”, and “White Gold” have been screened and won prizes at festivals around the world. Her graduate film “Warm Snow” in now having it’s world tour. (I have copied the text!)

Here you have more details as I consider is by far more important to share nice information, that taking recognition from my amazing writing XD

I love the short film “Connection” as I see myself every morning like this lady.

It is a real pleasure to find such a beutiful things in life.

Thanks Ira!

There is nothing more pleasant that having good ideas and a fantastic sense of humour. This is a clear example.

In Mexico from where piñatas are coming from, people try different options and this creations are made to celebrate something special in family or friends.

But in some parts of the country, these piñatas are used to protest and show discontent in specific aspects in the society. Like football players scoring against the National team in the World Cup.

The piñata was created to represent the destructions of sins but it turned into something more enjoyable.

This video bring a fantastic therapy for those, who work in a office and feel like giving fee massage to some colleagues 🙂

The piñatas can be used as part of a creative way to release stress and pull lots of creativity at the same time.

Piñatas can be made of recycled material so we can educated people how to re-use that piece of paper that is going to the bin one more time 🙂

So, let’s try it and enjoy it!
