Ken Robinson: what is creativity?

Creativity is often linked with the arts or the work of a single creative genius. British educator Sir Ken Robinson breaks down this idea, explaining that creativity is not solely the domain of the arts and should have a central place in our learning environments. He describes the way that imagination fuels creativity by taking us beyond what is present, and how creativity in turn leads to purposeful and innovative systems change.
