The Power Of An Idea

The Power Of An Idea | Design in Education | Scoop.it

There are wonderful picture books published every year, but sometimes there’s one that stands out from the crowd. What Do You Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Mae Bosem is the one. This book is a wonderful story about a brilliant idea and the child who helps bring it to the world. As the idea grows, so does the confidence of the little boy. This inspirational tale is for anyone, of any age, who’s ever had an idea but may be reluctant to embrace it, because it might seem different, odd, or just a little too big.

Entrepreneurship And Schools

Entrepreneurship And Schools | Design in Education | Scoop.it

The recent discussion posted to the International Society For Technology In Education’s LinkedIn group via the Fishtree Blog asks the question, “Should entrepreneurship be taught at school?” Our answer is a resounding YES! It also reminds us of an excellent motion graphic called Entrepreneurs Can Change the World by the Grasshopper group. We’ve used it to kick off our interdisciplinary, fifth-grade entrepreneur project for the past three years with much success.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Axis Of Education - Changing The Teaching Matrix

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: The Axis Of Education - Changing The Teaching Matrix | Design in Education | Scoop.it

Is creativity an end, or a means to an end? In education, this question has no easy answer. At times, creativity serves as a vehicle for inspiration, while at other times, originality is the destination itself. For painters and poets, artistry is the conduit to new perspectives and phrases. For the basement tinkerer, innovation is the spark to invention. But schools do not produce inventions; they produce inventors. For this reason, to incubate the creative mind is a crucial role of the teacher. To foster imagination is a key pathway toward entrepreneurship and discovery. Ingenuity, therefore, resides in the upper quadrant of any educational schema.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Century of the Child: Moving Forward

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Century of the Child: Moving Forward | Design in Education | Scoop.it

As we get deeper into the 21st century, some of the same issues raised at the beginning of the last century are emerging today, particularly in the area of education. The exhibition examines “the material world of children from utopian dreams as citizens of the future to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation.” Sound familiar? During the last century, modern architects and designers preoccupied themselves with childhood, including school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys, games, and a lot more. MoMA produced a wonderful interactive website to go along with this exhibit. The timeline walks the visitor through the objects on display by period, complete with detailed information and related works.

How Innovation Is More Poetry Than Science

How Innovation Is More Poetry Than Science | Design in Education | Scoop.it

“The essence of art, and the essence I believe of innovative design, comes through best with purposeful sparseness…A tightly held innovation fails to adapt because it has become too precious, too rigid, too fragile to manipulate…If poets or innovators limit themselves to what they know, they will be capable only of reconfiguring the familiar, but not creating something new…Notes hold mental sand and brick and steel, and without them, people leave destiny and wealth and recognition to the fragility of human consciousness. If you think something is important, write it down…Innovators deliver a value of purpose. A product, process or service can only be called innovative when it emerges into the world, leaving a wake that changes the world, however subtly, forever.”

Why You Must Never Stop Innovating | The Small Business Storyteller

Why You Must Never Stop Innovating | The Small Business Storyteller | Design in Education | Scoop.it

“I never look back, darling; it distracts from the now,” says Edna Mode in The Incredibles, as she tosses an iconic suit that she designed into the garbage can. Maybe you should follow her example. Stop salivating over the works of your past. When you complete a project, don’t sit around and agonize over how much work you put into it. Jump right into the next project. Always be thinking, “What’s next?”
