Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, November 18, 2014 10:49 AM

For as far as we have come in gender equality, we certainly have a long way to go. "But like Zimmerman, I worry that the real change that is needed is not about promoting STEM fields to women, but rather a change in the culture to make those fields more welcoming"--and without any kind of gender bashing. Not easy.

‘Me too’ strategy a dangerous path and the wrong way to innovation

‘Me too’ strategy a dangerous path and the wrong way to innovation | Ecoinnovation | Scoop.it
In today’s fast-paced marketplace, accelerated product life cycles, extreme competition, extensive unpredictability and demanding customers have stimulated a need for innovation, making it a matter of do-or-die for many organisations. But simply calling for innovation isn’t the same as producing it. Your team and your organisation need a clear and concise roadmap for developing innovation.

Jocelyn Stoller's curator insight, November 18, 2014 1:39 PM

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.
