Innovation: Significant Positive Change

Innovation: Significant Positive Change | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
So for 2015, our collective goal as educators should be striving to innovate our projects, activities, and curriculum such that we empower our students to develop into creative, insightful, successful learners who are prepared to become leaders in their desired future.
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

John Kao, author of Innovation Nation, says, "To me, innovation is the set of capabilities that allow for the continuous realization of a desired future."

 

According to Oxford Dictionaries, innovate means "to make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products."

 

Scott Berkun's (author of What Innovation Means) definition: "Innovation is significant positive change." "It's not the results that are necessarily innovative, but the way the group goes about doing its work."

 

How might you leverage any of these to create an experience for WCIW this year?

Call for papers: Creativity: Method or Madness, University of Glasgow | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it

The University of Glasgow , College of Arts and Humanities , invites proposals for papers on the theme of creativity for its fourth international postgraduate conference , which will take place on 26th and 27th May 2015 .

Marci Segal, MS's insight:

For our post graduate students and academics..."Creativity lies at the heart of the Arts and Humanities. In its origins, its forms and its impact, creativity escapes categorization and encourages new formulations of knowledge. Within academia, there may exist an inherent tension between the act of creation and critical analysis. The purpose of this conference is to explore how these tensions, themes and challenges surface in the diverse field of Arts and Humanities research. We welcome papers from individual scholars and inter-disciplinary collaborations."

The physics of creativity | mydigitalfc.com

The physics of creativity | mydigitalfc.com | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
For better or worse, says Csikszentmihalyi, our future is now closely tied to human creativity. The inference is obvious — the outcome of it all will be determined in large measure, wholly and substantially, by our own dreams, and our struggles to make them real. He argues that creativity isn’t a prerogative of supreme beings alone. The Homo sapiens, as Csikszentmihalyi argues, is riding the crest of evolution, thanks to human craft and creative hunger, aside from the emergence of great machines, and harnessing of energies, which have transformed the face of our living planet. It’s a revelation. This is not all. The psychologist also admits, cheek by jowl, that he’s not too sure whether this transformation will help the human race or cause its downfall.

Why we need the 'destruction' in creative destruction

Why we need the 'destruction' in creative destruction | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it

Creative destruction is, of course, the phrase made famous by 20th century economist Joseph Schumpeter. ("Disruption," on the other hand, was coined by Clayton Christensen in the late 90s. It's largely the same idea, adapted for business school.) Creative destruction refers to the fact that the innovation that lifted us from subsistence farming to modern affluence involves not just ingenuity and invention, but breaking down the old order. Schumpeter called creative destruction an "industrial mutation... that incessantly revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one."

Marci Segal, MS's insight:

Author shows creative destruction is not the same as incremental improvement. Argues that creative destruction is needed now in many areas as springboards for innovation.
