Research Says: Innovation Can Come Out Of The Garage

It makes you wonder what is it about garages and innovation? Is it about a being in a space where you can't damage anything, or where you won't be bothered?
Cammie Dunaway's insight:

Innovation, according to the study is derived by something  simple and easy to grasp—the simple intention to make a difference people love.  Kid Makers can be great innovators as illustrated by the story of the young girl who invented the holder for worn down crayons.

The 'maker movement' creates DIY revolution - Christian Science Monitor

The 'maker movement' creates DIY revolution - Christian Science Monitor | Young Makers | Scoop.it

A bank of Macs and PCs lines one wall where kids can research how to make things, learn to mix music with Garage Band, or build their own digital world with Minecraft. Windows behind the computers – a sort of bridge between the 20th and 21st centuries – offer a full view of a retired machinist’s woodworking shop. Bookshelves stuffed with remote-control cars, arts-and-crafts supplies, and beginning robotics kits flank a doorway leading to a bike shop. A pile of circuit boards and hard drives sits in a corner next to a disassembled electric wheelchair lying in wait for curious tinkerers.

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Ilkka Olander's curator insight, May 16, 10:10 AM

Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world) in the coming year.

Alan Ovens's curator insight, May 17, 5:33 PM

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

Can Any School Foster Pure Creativity?

Can Any School Foster Pure Creativity? | Young Makers | Scoop.it
How do we promote creativity in schools? This is one of the prevailing concerns of many progressive education reformers. From a long-term fiscal perspective, creativity can lead to innovation, and for the U.S. to have a competitive edge in the global economy, minds capable of identifying problems and imagining new possibilities are a necessity. But given the constructs of public schools, can creativity truly be valued?
Cammie Dunaway's insight:

95 percent of second-graders self-reported being creative, only 5 percent of high school seniors believe they are creative.
