Finding Your Element

by Ken Robinson

Finding Your Element

Ken Robinson

Overview

Sir Ken Robinson, the author of Finding Your Element, likes to talk about three things: creativity, uncertainty and the immense capabilities of children. Taken together, they make up much of what he stands for – that we're living through a revolution in education, and that it's time to change it.

Robinson is the presenter of one of the most famous TED talks of all time, and one of few strong critics of our school system. He says that, in its current form, it's meant to make us obedient, not educated. In this book, which acts as a sort of follow-up workbook to go with his bestseller The Element, Robinson shows us what to do right now, since we can't change our education system from one day to the next.

It outlines how you can find out what you're good at and what you like, and how to combine these two things into something that makes you happy, regardless of what society tells you or what you've been trained to do in school and college.

"These days, anyone whose real strengths lie outside the restricted field of academic work can find being at school a dispiriting experience and emerge from it wondering if they have any significant aptitudes at all."
