27 Ways to Inspire Students to Innovate

27 Ways to Inspire Students to Innovate | Low Power Heads Up Display | Scoop.it
Educator Mia MacMeekin made this infographic about ways to inspire students to think more deeply about how innovation applies to them.

Richard Platt's insight:

(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..

Are hydrogen cars the wave of the future? Toyota thinks so.

The current conventional wisdom is that plug-in electric vehicles will be the clean, sleek cars of tomorrow. Think of Tesla's Model S or Chevrolet's Volt. These cars get most of the media attention, and policymakers tend to toss tax breaks their way.

I guess this is the next big revolution to take place in technology. Hydrogen is the best alternative to Hydrocarbons which cause a lot of pollution and greenhouse gases. Electric vehicles don't have the range although they are a viable alternative in cities. Hydrogen as such is highly volatile and it requires careful handling-this would include transporting it to refuelling  stations, and its transfer into the vehicles themselves. With time to come, all these issues will be addressed, I am sure.
