The passing of a great educator and thought leader


I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Sir Ken Robinson this morning after his short battle with cancer.

I had the great pleasure of meeting him on three occasions when he visited Australia for various education events and count him has a major influence in my professional life.

After seeing his 2006 TED Talk Do schools kill creativity I was hooked and have read all of his books and refer to him and his messaging often when I am presenting to teachers.

Sir Ken championed the fight to enhance creativity in education and in all aspects of life. His passion, his words and his influence will live on in all of us who are striving to improve the education system.

I was very much looking forward to working with him later this year where we had booked him to present (online) at Adobe Max.

His memory and his message will live on.
