Dr. Susan Bainbridge's curator insight, April 2, 2013 2:40 AM

Good infographic. "Thanks to Boundless and Getting Smart for putting together and sharing this great infographic outlining the latest trends in Educational technology. It helps to cut through all the buzzwords flying around and pinpoint what we may or may not be incorporating in our learning and teaching. It also gets me thinking a lot about educational technology and brings up a lot of questions."

Better late than never? Teaching creativity in college

Better late than never? Teaching creativity in college | Community Engagement in Education | Scoop.it
Oh, standardized-test happy educators and administrators (and parents), when will you learn?

The Chronicle of Higher Education has an interesting but kind of maddening story about a new trend: colleges teaching creativity:

"... Today's students will need such tools to tackle the problems they stand to inherit. Climate change, income inequality, and escalating health-care costs cannot be remedied by technocratic solutions alone, say advocates of teaching creativity. Knowledge will need to be combined across disciplines, and juxtaposed in unorthodox ways.

Deans, provosts, and faculty members are also aware that many of their students will shift careers several times in their lives and work at jobs that do not exist yet. If students can gain some facility with creative thinking now, colleges reason, perhaps they will be more adaptable both as employees and citizens in an uncertain future. This growing appreciation of the practical, societal, and personal value of learning creative skills has prompted colleges both large and small to make creativity a compulsory part of their undergraduate education. ..."

So, kids are born with natural curiosity and creativity. Then we send them off to elementary school, many of which do their best to rid them of these qualities in favor of memorizing facts so they'll do well on standardized tests.
