Monkeys explain our attitude to talent

Today I came across this video. It is kind, has no words, but very pleasant music. In my view the main messages are:

  • We tend to insist too much on what we think is good for our kids without noticing what they like or good at
  • Real talent can easily be rejected by traditional education
  • Teachers see creativity as annoyance or disobedience

Great material to be used at a conference to break the ice or keep your audience awake during the long day of speeches.
