“When I grow up, I want to be…. happy!” says 13 year-old Logan LaPlante. He is part of a small but growing revolution of children going about their education differently. Being healthy, happy, creative and innovative are elements of what Logan calls “hackschooling.” He defines “hackers” as those who challenge and change the system to make it work differently.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.

In this video Sir Ken Robinson makes a case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
