Discover Your Element

Picture1Sir Ken Robinson, a leading creativity advocate whom many of you know from his bestselling book “The Element,” and his acclaimed TedTalk video, has joined Adobe in the past by having a voice in our blog. “The Element” inspired readers all over the world to discover what really makes them tick and get the most out of their lives and work. Today, the long-awaited companion and complimentary book, “Finding Your Element: How to Discover Your Talents and Passions and Transform Your Life,” is being released.

To accompany the book’s debut, a new one-hour TV program on American Public Television, “Finding Your Element with Sir Ken Robinson,” will air on public television stations nationwide beginning June 1 (check local listings). The program offers practical advice as well as techniques and resources that we believe will help educators put creative ideas into practice in the classroom. Per Sir Ken, the “element” is the point where natural talents meet personal passions; once you find your element, your life takes on a new character and purpose.

Here at Adobe, we focus on helping educators and students discover their passions by advocating for creativity and creative thinking in the classroom. Finding your “element” plays a key role in unleashing creativity – so we encourage you to watch Sir Ken’s PBS program, think about where your talents and passions meet, how they define your personal brand, and how you can articulate your brand in ways that will inspire your students. That way you can make creativity an everyday element in your classroom.

Join us @adobeedu by tweeting with the #CreateNowEdu hashtag to let us know how you are unlocking creativity in your classroom! You can also participate in the conversation about Sir Ken by following the #SirKenElement hashtag.

Disclosure: Adobe Education Marketing team is a proud sponsor of Sir Ken’s public program on American Public Television.

    This is a topic that I am passionate about. I am a professional Artist who began teaching high school art 5 years ago to get me closer to the problem of creativity in our education system. I have done several televison segments on “Good Things Utah” morning show as the “Imagination Guy”. I would really like to talk to someone at Adobe who is involved in this project. I have many Ideas.
    Thanks.
