"“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status.” – Sir Ken Robinson
Our children will grow up into a world that we can barely yet conceive of. Education thinkers and leaders are now in broad agreement that in order to enable children to succeed in the 21st century we need to mould creative thinkers and problem solvers who can learn, unlearn and relearn."
The Collective Intelligence Handbook [tentative title] Thomas W. Malone and Michael S. Bernstein (Editors)
Collective intelligence has existed at least as long as humans have, because families, armies, countries, and companies have all--at least sometimes--acted collectively in ways that seem intelligent. But in the last decade or so a new kind of collective intelligence has emerged: groups of people and computers, connected by the Internet, collectively doing intelligent things. In order to understand the possibilities and constraints of these new kinds of intelligence, a new interdisciplinary field is emerging.
This book will introduce readers to many disciplinary perspectives on behavior that is bothcollective and intelligent. By collective, we mean groups of individual actors, including, for example, people, computational agents, and organizations. By intelligent, we mean that the collective behavior of the group exhibits characteristics such as, for example, perception, learning, judgment, or problem solving."

The children and media research community has been buzzing with frustration at the viral circulation of Cris Rowan's Huffington Post column, "10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12." The piece pretty well defines "hack-ademic" writing, in which an author throws lots of learned-sounding terms and citations at a lay reader, while obscuring misinterpretations and fuzzy logic. Here are 10 reasons why Rowan's column is flawed.
We all want to be creative. We want to inspire creativity in our students. We want to teach material in creative ways that get students engaged and excited (without reinventing the wheel, of course!). But sometimes, creative just isn’t happening. When you can’t think of anything new, or anything that you deem ‘creative’ or ‘more interesting’ than the basics, it can be frustrating. I so often hear the advice to ‘just let it happen’. Which is, of course, even more frustrating! It isn’t always just that easy!
