Creative activities that can allow the students to develop innovative thinking.

Richard Platt's curator insight, December 8, 2013 11:40 PM

(from the Curator of IoT & Wearables): We've stayed away from many academic's re: how to enable students to be better at problem solving and innovating, (because most academics think they already know what innovation and complex problem solving is all about and well not to put too fine a point on it they just don't),  

 

We do take issue wtih the status quo of academia.  Obviously we have strongly held views on engineering education and problem solving / innovaiton, but they are warranted and justified.

 

We see most academic work in the area of innovating, problem solving / problem finding and more specifically in complex problem solving in the domain of engineering  to be broken., biased and prejudicial  

 

Nonetheless we do give credit in this post by Mia MacMeekin as it is a move in the right direction, we just don't see it going far enough to make problem solving and problem finding cool or effective enough for students to really be able to do anything significant with when it comes time for them to contribute.  Sorry we call it as we see it..

Pros and Cons of Social Media in Education, INFOGRAPHIC > Big Universities today, Disruption Tomorrow? | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

Check out the top five schools using social media well, at least today. These are the usual suspects.  


ALSO take a look at OmniAcademy and Southern New Hampshire University (profiled in Fast Company.)   These two seem to have more in common in preparing for the disruption in higher education that is already beginning to happen.

The Cloud & Innovation: The Most Disruptive Companies in Tech, Infographic

The Cloud & Innovation:  The Most Disruptive Companies in Tech, Infographic | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

It should come as little surprise that many of the innovations are cloud-powered, or cloud-dependent.

 

Consider the iPad... Apple’s the clear leader in the tablet market, and eating away at the traditional computing market. Apple owns more than 68% of the tablet market, and is replacing laptops, e-readers and handheld games.

 

What’s that got to do with cloud? Plenty.

 

The iPad depends on cloud services to power its most popular native apps, not to mention all the Webapps that users hit up on the iPad.

 

Focus also highlights Netflix. Despite its recent PR and marketing blunders, Netflix has grown to a $9.1 billion market cap – in no small part due to its streaming service.

 

They should pay attention to subscribers woes, though. According to Focus, they’ve lost 1.6 million subscribers since June.

Leading Continuous Innovation INFOGRAPHIC: Culture, Fringe Experiments, Customer Immersion

Leading Continuous Innovation INFOGRAPHIC: Culture, Fringe Experiments, Customer Immersion | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

How can change leaders support high performance, innovative teams? The infographic below cites 10 innovation strategies.  This is close.  There will be more of these process charts and innovation graphics.  


This one features:


Step 2:  Working at the organization's edges, the fringe & close to customers I've heard Dr. Jeff DeGraff talk about fringe teams this year at the Michigan Ross School of Business.


Step 3:  Culture that  supports experimentation, failure.  This is ubiquitous in mention, scarce in after-the-fact reporting.  Better known examples, 3M (Post-Its) and Google (Google Lab: Buzz, Wave, etc.)


Step 6: Customer immersion, pain points


Step 10:  Metrics, measures

Note the continuous improvement language, adjusted slightly, a 'la W. Edwards Deming:  Ready, Aim, Fire, Adjust.  Like Plan, Do, Check, Act.
