Reality, imagination and creativity

We all know it, but children need to be given the opportunity to use their imagination; to dream and to create.

In this TED talk, Erik Johansson shares about his creativity and shows some of the amazing photography (and editing/mashing) he has done. We need to allow our children, our students to use their imagination and be creative. We must not let the structure and rigidity of formal education (and perhaps in particular, assessments) get in the way of creativity. And don’t forget about the fantastic opportunities that technology gives us to help our imaginations run wild!
