This week we’re going to be watching a TED talk about creativity.  David Kelley is the founder of IDEO (first Apple mouse!) and is very interested in creativity.  At the d.school, Kelley helps people develop their creativity.

His talk is based on three stories – the clay horse story, Bandura and the snake story and Dietz and the MRI machine story.  As you listen to the talk try to think about the message in each of these stories.

He speaks quite clearly but he’s got an American accent.  There are French and English subtitles if you need them!
