Parents: Buy Kids' Legos, But Throw Away The Instructions - Forbes

Parents: Buy Kids' Legos, But Throw Away The Instructions - Forbes | ways2play | Scoop.it

Sometimes it seems to me that, beneath all the worry about STEM – science, technology, electronics and mathematics –education and funding and our global competitiveness, there’s a sense that we’re fast approaching our limit as an “innovation nation”—or worse, that we’re already there. In new product development where I began my career, we emphasize “design thinking,” the idea that when you have a problem to address, you start, first, by imagining its solution. That kind of thinking requires a belief in possibility, and the idea that our future is what we choose to make of it. Too much of that is missing right now. But it can be found again.
