I love this! This is why the arts (typically thought of more highly related to creative thinking) are being seen, more and more, as an integral part of science and math (typically seen as a spot for critical thinking).

Transformation in Education: Can iPad, and other ICT devices, help to transform learning cultures? #ukedchat #edtech - Enabling Environments

Transformation in Education: Can iPad, and other ICT devices, help to transform learning cultures? #ukedchat #edtech - Enabling Environments | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

"At an ICT Subject Leaders conference I had the chance to listen to Craig Wilkie who speaks passionately about Transformation in Education. I really valued his honesty, and almost his vulnerability, in promoting this thinking in schools (Transformation sounds like a big deal, and a scary concept!) However, as his presentation went on, I realised that my school and other settings I have worked with are transforming the learning culture."

100 People: A World Portrait

100 People: A World Portrait | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

This is the truly global project that asks the children of the world to introduce us to the people of the world.  We've seen videos and resources that ask the question, "if there were only 100 people in the world, what would it look like?"  This takes that idea of making demographic statistics more meaningful one step further by asking student in schools for around the world to nominate some "representative people" and share their stories.  The site houses videos, galleries from each continent and analyze themes that all societies must deal with.  This site that looks at the people and places on out planet to promote greater appreciation of cultural diversity and understanding is a great find.
