Extended Interview: Sir Ken Robinson

Education expert Sir Ken Robinson wants to revolutionise how education works, saying the current system prioritises a narrow definition of intellect.

"There was a time that being educated meant you could speak Latin. Then there was a time that it meant having gone to university. I'm trying to get people to think differently."

Sir Ken, a professor at the University of Warwick, says education systems worldwide have become overly focused on a narrow kind of ability that we call "academic work".

"What happens is we often confuse academic ability with intelligence more generally and I think that's something we really need to revisit."
