TED Inspiration: Education, State Budgets and Creativity
By Cindy Ivanac-Lillig
In 10 minutes, Bill Gates paints a picture of the important role that state budgets play in our lives and in the future of our country. Here is his recent TED talk:
And now to feed the right side of your brain... After we have reflected on the importance of education funding above, Ken Robinson asks us to give some thought as to what our educational goals should be. He points out how the educational system was created to serve the industrialization age and how it needs to be reimagined for the 21st century if we are to prepare our children for the future. Below you'll find his recent TED talk (about 20 minutes) and an animated version of a similar talk on changing the educational paradigm (11 minutes) -- take your pick as they are both fantastic:
I hope this provided some food for thought -- Let me know what you think.

I truly like the fresh perpective you did on the issue. Truly was not expecting that when I started off studying. Your concepts had been easy to comprehend that I wondered why I never looked at it before. Glad to know that there’s an individual out there that definitely understands what he’s discussing. Great job

Great videos. Maybe Bill Gates should run for President. He sure knows how to make money. Maybe he could pull us out of this downhill spiral we are in.
