Thoughtful cognitive neuroscientists such as Rex Jung, Darya Zabelina, Andreas Fink, John Kounios, Mark Beeman, Kalina Christoff, Oshin Vartanian, Jeremy Gray, Hikaru Takeuchi and others are on the forefront of investigating what actually happens in the brain during the creative process. And their findings are overturning conventional notions surrounding the neuroscience of creativity.
The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain. Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.

MONICA LOPEZ SIEBEN's insight:
Normalmente nos dicen que para tener reuniones productivas es necesario prepararlas bien, tener un líder, un orden del día con hora de comienzo y de finalización y elaborar al final unas líneas de conclusiones y plan de acción.
Pero para el gran número de horas que gastamos en reuniones necesitamos algunas ideas más impactantes.

Para Maurizio Betti las instituciones de educación superior deberían enfrentar el desafío de dar respuesta a las necesidades y oportunidades de aprendizaje; lo cual no se logra si la educación mantiene en una lógica tradicional en la que solo se preocupan por entregar un título, sin responder a la necesidad de actualización.
"Elite universities with global brands – and those with at least national prominence – will be least affected by the sudden onset of massive open online courses or MOOCs, because they will always have markets for people willing to pay for the elite model of education, says a new report by the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education."
Online higher education 2.0 has arrived. It is open source, open enrollment and often provided by non-profit colleges. It has the potential to greatly expand access to higher education and to rapidly improve the knowledge base of global citizens.
Elite universities with global brands — and those with at least national prominence — will be least affected by the sudden onset of "massive open online courses" (MOOCs), because they will always have markets for people willing to pay for the elite model of education, says a new report by the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education.

Me encanta estar conectado. Necesito mi dosis diaria de conexión. Me gusta tener conexión plena, permanente e ininterrumpida de forma me sienta un sujeto ubicuo. Sin embargo, la hiperconectividad satura y, en ocasiones, genera problemas. Por ello, es muy relevante y necesario aprender a seleccionar los tiempos de desconexión. Puede parecer fácil, pero en los tiempos actuales no lo es. La desconexión significa renunciar a dar prioridad a la comunicación digital. Significa otorgar a la máquina un papel secundario respecto a las personas con las que estamos presencialmente. Y casi nunca lo hacemos.
MIT's definition of a breakthrough is simple: an advance that gives people powerful new ways to use technology. It could be an intuitive design that provides a useful interface (e.g., “Smart Watches”) or experimental devices that could allow people who have suffered brain damage to once again form memories (“Memory Implants”). Some could be key to sustainable economic growth (“Additive Manufacturing” and “Supergrids”), while others could change how we communicate (“Temporary Social Media”) or think about the unborn (“Prenatal DNA Sequencing”). Some are brilliant feats of engineering (“Baxter”), whereas others stem from attempts to rethink longstanding problems in their fields (“Deep Learning” and “Ultra-Efficient Solar Power”). As a whole, this annual list not only tells you which technologies you need to know about, but also celebrates the creativity that produced them.
Located on a dense site next to ‘Sustainability Street’ at the University of British Columbia, the Centre for Interactive Research on Sustainability [CIRS] houses 200 researchers from private, public, and NGO sectors, who work together with the common mission of accelerating sustainability.
The 5,675m2 ‘living lab’ is organized around two four-story wings linked by a central atrium. The atrium serves as a building lobby and entry to a daylit auditorium, and as a social and educational space from which all of the project’s sustainable strategies are visible.
The CIRS building has embraced the ambitious sustainability goals of the Living Building Challenge, including those of net zero water consumption; waste water treatment on site; net zero energy consumption, and construction and operational carbon neutrality...
