Убивают ли школы творчество? - Do Schools Kill Creativity?

00:00:25
Good morning. How are you?
00:00:30
(Laughter)
00:00:31
It's been great, hasn't it?
00:00:34
I've been blown away by the whole thing.
00:00:36
In fact, I'm leaving.
00:00:38
(Laughter)
00:00:43
There have been three themes running through the conference
00:00:47
which are relevant to what I want to talk about.
00:00:49
One is the extraordinary evidence of human creativity
00:00:54
in all of the presentations that we've had
00:00:56
and in all of the people here.
00:00:58
Just the variety of it and the range of it.
00:01:01
The second is that it's put us in a place
00:01:04
where we have no idea what's going to happen,
00:01:06
in terms of the future.
00:01:08
No idea how this may play out.
00:01:10
I have an interest in education.
00:01:12
Actually, what I find is everybody has an interest in education.
00:01:16
Don't you?
00:01:18
I find this very interesting.
00:01:19
If you're at a dinner party,
00:01:21
and you say you work in education --
00:01:23
Actually, you're not often at dinner parties, frankly.
00:01:26
(Laughter)
00:01:30
If you work in education, you're not asked.
00:01:32
(Laughter)
00:01:36
And you're never asked back, curiously. That's strange to me.
00:01:39
But if you are, and you say to somebody,
00:01:42
you know, they say, "What do you do?"
00:01:44
and you say you work in education,
00:01:45
you can see the blood run from their face.
00:01:47
They're like, "Oh my God," you know, "Why me?"
00:01:50
(Laughter)
00:01:51
"My one night out all week."
00:01:53
(Laughter)
00:01:56
But if you ask about their education, they pin you to the wall.
00:01:59
Because it's one of those things that goes deep with people, am I right?
00:02:03
Like religion, and money and other things.
00:02:06
So I have a big interest in education, and I think we all do.
00:02:10
We have a huge vested interest in it,
00:02:12
partly because it's education that's meant to take us into this future
00:02:16
that we can't grasp.
00:02:17
If you think of it, children starting school this year
00:02:21
will be retiring in 2065.
00:02:26
Nobody has a clue,
00:02:27
despite all the expertise that's been on parade for the past four days,
00:02:31
what the world will look like in five years' time.
00:02:33
And yet we're meant to be educating them for it.
00:02:36
So the unpredictability, I think, is extraordinary.
00:02:38
