“Diversity of Talent”

Somehow this video from Ted Talks on creativity presented by Sir Ken Robinson made me think about the homogenizing of SL, something very many of us have observed or written about for a very long time.  In the video, Sir Robinson talks about fostering creativity in the context of formal education, with specific emphasis on the need to revolutionize learning.   Despite framing this in education, I found the concepts he shares important and really applicable to any entity, institution, or personal way of thinking…inworld or otherwise.  One of my favorite lines in the video is this:  “human communities depend upon a diversity of talent.”  He has several thought-provoking (and humorous) statements along those lines.  The video is a fast 17 minutes in length.
