  • Creativity, in education, is as important as literacy, and should be treated with the same status. (SKR)If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.By the time children become adults, they have become frightened of being wrong.In our education systems, mistakes are the worst things you can make.We are educating people out of their creative capacities.Picasso once said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.We don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it, or rather, we are educated out of it.

    43. 43. Web 2.0 for the Net Generation?  “Millennial users prefer online access and collaborative web-based environments in addition to physical facilities.”  “This is also critically important for Millennials as they are overwhelmingly embracing these types of Web 2.0 content.” (June 2006) Source: Marketing Library Services to Millennials: A New Paradigm for Library and Information Service Providers, by Timothy Daniels and Robert H. McDonald (Educause)
    44. 44. Clickers: Web 2.0 & Net Gens
    45. 45. The Bible Howe and Strauss (2000) demonstrate that the children of boomers and of older members of Generation X are actually harder workers and better community builders than any generation since the G.I. Generation (born 1901- 1924)
    46. 46. B.S. These guys have no idea what they’re talking about. Most of the book is pure speculation and an effort to find results that match their own predictions in a previous book where they wrote about what they thought this generation would be.

Any institutionally- created, operated, or controlled environment in which participants are lured in either by mimicking pre- existing open or naturally formed environments, or by force, through a system of punishments or rewards. http://flexknowlogy.learningfield.org CC Photo by Chris Shiflett
