Power of the Imaginative Mind

If you have 16 minutes of your time today please few the following educational video presention by Sir Ken Robinson on the Power of the Imaginative Mind. Sir Ken Robinson's remarks were recorded on April 10, 2008, at the Apple Education Leadership Summit, a gathering in San Francisco of more than one hundred school superintendents from around the world. Robinson is the author of Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative.

His global message is so very powerful which addresses our state of education in direct comparison to our ecological environment- wow- this is reality!

Transform your teaching and learning environment to reflect true creativity!

Comic Creators to Promote Social Skills

Had a great conversation with an Intel senior trainer today in Chicago about the importance of giving students a "voice" to represent who they truly are through appropriate web 2.0 social skill tools. After further thought I felt very passionate about sharing some tools that I have used with students I have worked with in our western Wisconsin area. Hope these web 2.0 tools will build a positive literacy environment within your k-16 classrooms!
