In this video, visionary cultural leader and creativity expert, Sir Ken Robinson, “makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity. [He] challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.” Source: Ted Talks
As a 21st Century Learning Community, inspired by the Reggio Approach to inquiry-based learning, Richland Academy is committed to providing a well-balanced education for our students. The materials and surroundings our students observe and interact with each day pique their natural curiosities. By using their senses, children are able to cultivate creative interactions with their environment, and spend more time inquiring, experimenting and exploring what they are learning.
“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.”
~Sir Ken Robinson
