This is a video was taken at a TED talk conference for kids, run by Adora Svitak, (A truly amazing kid!). The presenter is Priya Ganesan, a poet and blogger at Book Crumbs, and she believes that students’ creativity is stifled in school, because assignments come with too many rules and leave little room for out of the box thinking. I do agree with her observations that kindergarteners and lower elementary students, in general, tend to be more creative, in many ways, than upper elementary and middle school students. What do you think? What could we do to keep kids thinking creatively?
