The Importance of Creativity

Imagine asking the world’s leading thinkers and doers to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. That’s what happens at TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conferences.

This talk, by Sir Ken Robinson, came four years ago and has been viewed more than one million times on YouTube. With humor and storytelling, he makes the case that, educationally, creativity is just as important as literacy.

At Elon, we frequently describe the student-oriented mission of the School of Communications as “launching creative and meaningful careers.”
