7 Foods to Feed Your Creativity

7 Foods to Feed Your Creativity | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Highly creative individuals show us that there are many ways to feed the creative muses. Steve Jobs was an on-and-off fruitarian. Walt Whitman liked to start his day with oysters, and Beethoven would wake up and count out precisely 60 beans for his morning cup of coffee. Oliver Sacks almost always lunches on herring and black bread, while midday for the filmmaker Ingmar Bergman meant cornflakes and strawberry jam. Thomas Wolfe had a prodigious appetite and would write standing up in the kitchen with the top of the refrigerator as his desk. The pianist Glenn Gould fasted every day and visited a diner each night for the same meal of scrambled eggs, salad, toast, juice, sherbet, and decaf coffee.

Switching On One-Shot Learning in the Brain

Switching On One-Shot Learning in the Brain | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Most of the time, we learn only gradually, incrementally building connections between actions or events and outcomes. But there are exceptions—every once in a while, something happens and we immediately learn to associate that stimulus with a result. For example, maybe you have had bad service at a store once and sworn that you will never shop there again.

Consumers are more likely to spend money on companies that care, a new study finds

Consumers are more likely to spend money on companies that care, a new study finds | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
A new study shows that when brands invest the time and effort to connect with customers, it pays. The report, Meaningful Brands, was conducted by global advertising agency Havas, and concludes that so-called meaningful brands enjoyed increased sales, better brand awareness and higher annual returns than other companies.

“A consumer is willing to spend more money on your brand if they consider you a meaningful brand,” said Maria Garrido, international marketing director for Havas. She added that the study, which was released on Tuesday, was a measure of “how we define wellbeing”.

The most interesting coworking concepts

The most interesting coworking concepts | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

"When I worked in an open-plan office in the city, the only thing I wanted was to live and work near a surf spot. However, I didn't want to be stuck alone at one of the local cafe shops or at home office because I knew that working alone can be distracting. I had heard about “coworking” and “co-living” and decided to set up a coworking space that would perfectly match my needs.

So, I found a place with a perfect surfing conditions, rented an office
space and apartments and started working"

"In the eyes of the law, once people reach the age of 18, they are considered adult, but the brain continues to mature and refine all the way into the mid-20s," the study’s lead author Mary-Louise Risher, a post-doctoral researcher in the Duke Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, said in a press release. "It's important for young people to know that when they drink heavily during this period of development, there could be changes occurring that have a lasting impact on memory and other cognitive functions."

Where the Magic Happens: library maker programs

Where the Magic Happens: library maker programs | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
The maker zeitgeist has evolved far beyond the day when an educator might set objects—say, a box of robotic LEGOs—in a library corner and call it a “maker lab.” Educators are now focusing on how the maker movement can be truly meaningful: it’s not about where making is happening, but about how creating, experimenting, and collaborating impact education. In addition, some high schoolers tinkering their free periods away can discover a passion—sometimes leading to a future educational focus or even scholarship money.

 

“The maker movement…encourages a growth mind-set, which tolerates risk and failure and maybe even encourages it,” says Laura Fleming, library media specialist with the New Milford (NJ) High School. “It has been the great equalizer within, and in some ways against, our modern education system by allowing opportunities for creativity and innovation to take place through informal learning.”
