Help people discover their talents

In this 17½ minute conversation, which I came across via a Twitter update by Paul Sloane, Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way education is done. Towards the end of the interview, Sir Ken Robinson - who, by the way, has a sense of humor that I like - mentions, for example, that creativity is about discovering your personal talents. In this regard, he talks about personalising the curriculum. To teachers reading this, I’d like to ask you to which degree you’re doing just that? In other words, to which degree are you more outside-in than inside-out oriented? To which degree are you, in your teaching approach, more demand oriented than supply oriented?
