Romina J-Proctor's insight:

Creativity, facilitated by the Internet, is limitless - "In many ways I think the vast wealth of knowledge we have access to via the Internet and the distributed connected community of peers we are part of, means that we truly now have what Salomon called ‘distributed cognition’ (Salomon 1993). We are our networks. We are what Perkin’s describes as ‘person plus’."

Creating Innovators: Why America's Education System Is Obsolete - Forbes

Creating Innovators: Why America's Education System Is Obsolete - Forbes | Creative Thinking for Education | Scoop.it
America's education system has become obsolete.
Romina J-Proctor's insight:

“Today knowledge is ubiquitous, constantly changing, growing exponentially… Today knowledge is free. It’s like air, it’s like water. It’s become a commodity… There’s no competitive advantage today in knowing more than the person next to you. The world doesn’t care what you know. What the world cares about is what you can do with what you know.”


There's a threshhold of knowledge under which innovation probably won't occur but innovation / creativity is now more important than knowledge as it's those individuals who can take knowledge to new heights who will prosper this century.

Rather than a series of discrete programming challenges this book approaches programming using Scratch through the medium of a story that provides continuity and motivation. Having a carefully sequenced set of activities in one resource should make life easier for learners and teachers.

Art and the artist are so thoroughly intertwined that we can’t bear to think of one without the other. For better or worse, we’re going to have to rethink this comfortable little notion.  Machine intelligence is advancing to the point where algorithms have begun to invade the world of culture and the aesthetic.

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Growing Nimble Thinkers for the Creative Economy by Deborah Morrison and Glenn Griffin

Moving at the Speed of Creativity | Growing Nimble Thinkers for the Creative Economy by Deborah Morrison and Glenn Griffin | Creative Thinking for Education | Scoop.it
Romina J-Proctor's insight:

"Nimble Thinking" is a subset of creativity - an interesting concept. A well-researched quality of creative personalities is their ability to stick with difficult problems (sometimes to the death). Hopefully "nimble" doesn't mean "flighty" as Big-C creative thinkers generally focussed their thinking on a specific problem for lengthy periods. They did bring the ideas from any disciplines and others to their problem so in this respect they were "nimble". Interesting video. How can teachers facilitate creative thinking in the classroom if ideas are all scattered in each person's brain? How can we help children work through the creative thinking process to come out with a worthwhile product if there's really no process?
