Sir Ken in his element

sirkenrsa

Being “in your element” is an idiom that UsingEnglish.com defines as feeling “happy and relaxed because you are doing something that you like doing and are good at.” In his latest book, Sir Ken Robinson describes “the Element” (which is also the name of the book) as “the place where the things we love to do and the things we are good at come together.”

An earlier post describes the book, but how much better if you can hear Sir Ken talk about it in his own words. Here is his February talk at the RSA, the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

    Hi Ken!
    Thanks for your comment. Am pumped to relate that on Friday I will have the opportunity to hear and see Ken Robinson in person! I attended a workshop at Google last Friday, and one of the perks was a free pass to an educational conference this weekend. I will definitely write about the talk in a future blog post.

    Cheers,
    Laurie
