How To Unlock Creativity

"Do you know this guy on the left? Of course you do! The man, and in particular that photo, are icons. They represent creativity itself.

Yet Einstein is both an inspiration and an intimidation. His legend, unfortunately, has obscured much his story’s true value. He was, in many ways, unexceptional, but nevertheless managed to see the world differently and led others to do so as well."

MCG23's curator insight, April 3, 2013 8:51 PM

interesting article that i myself can relate to in the classroom.  I have my kids doing occasional exercise in my year 8 Mathematics class and the benefits of how the classes respond after a brief exercise break is fasinating.  Alas I have not done this as much with my older students...i need to break out of this model for my senior students!

PBS provides many resources that help students learn the design process, and this post provides a short description. There are projects for students in grades K-1 up through high school and beyond. Below are names of a few of the projects.

* Designing a Wheelchair for Rugby - use to launch a design project in your classroom

* Scientist Profile: Inventor - have your student meet a teen scientist and see what he invented...and have them design their own invention

* A House for Teddy Bear - Watch young users use problem solving skills and trial and error as they create a house...and try it in your classroom.

An additional three ideas are in the post and more may be found on the PBS website (http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/). You will need to create a log-in.

The tenor and tone of the classroom needs to move towards the higher end of Bloom's taxonomy. The content of this YouTube clip is good but the 'how' for a school is much harder than the 'what'.
