Geoffrey Canada: "we can't stifle innovation in schools"

Why, why, why does our education system look so similar to the way it did 50 years ago? Millions of students were failing then, as they are now -- and it’s because we’re clinging to a business model that clearly doesn’t work.

Introduction to the 4P's

Creativity as a whole entity, or a single field to be studied, is composed of four parts or strands. They were described by Rhodes (1961) as being: understanding the traits, characteristics or attributes of the creative person; describing the operations or stages of thinking used in the creative process; identifying outcomes and qualities of creative products; and examining thenature of situations and itsÇ context within the creative press (or environment). The above figure illustrates how these four strands can stand alone but how, by their nature, they operate almost always as a synthesis of two or more simultaneously. In fact the most complete picture of any one of the 4PÇs can be best viewed when considering the influence on it by one or more of the others. With that said however, a close look at each of them individually will perhaps promote a better understanding of what they are. It will also give a clearer vision of why they are considered a viable framework for studying creativity.

TodaysMeet as a Brainstorming Tool

Imagine you're giving a presentation where you can read the mind of every person in the room. You'd have an amazing ability to adjust to your audience's needs and emotions. That's the backchannel.


Using Twitter at social media conferences has become a great way to do just that. But Twitter isn't appropriate for every situation.


  • Your audience isn't on Twitter.
  • You don't want the discussion to be public.
  • You need to see only relevant updates.
     

That's where TodaysMeet comes in. TodaysMeet gives you an isolated room where you can see only what you need to see, and your audience doesn't need to learn any new tools like hash tags to keep everything together.
