Eminent Voices December 13, 2014

Danis Tanović, a Bosnian film director and screenwriter, talks about the importance of creativity in education.

In our times, he says, education should not only be based on learning facts by heart without putting them into practice, education should much rather be about teaching how to solve problems creatively. Children are per se curious about the world they live in, therefore educators should use their innate eagerness to explore the world around them to teach creative approaches to learning.
