  1. To The Best Of Our Knowledge: Learning Outside The Box

    Big box education is on the way out. Instead, imagine a future with schools of every variety available for mixing and matching, like sushi on a platter. Micro-schools, Waldorf Schools, part-time schools and more. And non-school alternatives like internships and single classes. That’s the future as seen by Matt Hern, an advocate for what he calls de-schooling. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, learning outside the box. And, redefining normal for kids on the short bus.

    Jonathan Mooney says that "normal" is a social construct, not a medical one. Dan Zanes writes music for children of all ages. Matt Hern advocates alternative education. Michel Piechowski describes the way gifted children experience their lives. Sherman Alexie tries to teach an end to tribalism.

  3. Sir Ken Robinson Speaks at the RSA

    Sir Ken Robinson, one of the world’s most inspirational speakers on creativity, education and enterprise, visits the RSA to share new thinking on ‘The Element’ - the point at which natural talent meets personal passion.

    In a new book, Sir Ken argues that we are all born with tremendous natural capacities, but that we lose touch with them as we spend more time in the world. Whether it’s a child bored in class, an employee being misused or just someone who feels frustrated but can’t quite explain why, too many people don’t know what they are really capable of achieving. And education, business and society as a whole are losing out.

    At a time of deepening recession, we simply cannot afford to squander the skills and talents that will be vital to our future economic prosperity. Sir Ken will show how we can nurture our creative potential more fully and consider: What is required for organisations to survive in a difficult economic climate? What skills are successful business people exercising to maintain productivity, faced with increased competition, fluctuating markets and rapid advancements in technology? How do we prepare the workforce to meet these challenges and help them, individually and collectively, to realise their potential to be creative and innovative, using foresight and informed risk-taking?

  4. Open Source - Sir Ken Robinson & John Maeda: Creativity for Breakfast

    Both men are titans of the TED conference style of presenting “ideas worth spreading” to the Web. John Maeda emerged at TED two winters ago talking about The Laws of Simplicity, while inside he was reeling toward his own future, head still spinning from Ken Robinson’s TED talk a year earlier on education as a standardized way of crushing invention. Maeda, a star at MIT’s Media Lab, still in his thirties, heard a call from the heavens to “change my life.” And so he did, moving from MIT and the engineering of technology to the presidency of the Rhode Island School of Design and the teaching of art and innovation. After a RISD year that he’s been blogging at every turn, Maeda’s invitation to Robinson to give the commencement address felt like a personal thank-you and maybe an appeal for confirmation. Early on RISD’s graduation day, we had a three-way gab at the Hope Club in Providence about expressiveness and originality, in art and life, across the board.

  9. David Attenborough in conversation with Richard Dawkins | Science | guardian.co.uk

    How refreshing. Richard Dawkins talking to some one as smart as he is. This is SO much more interesting than belittling people’s views. A lovely dialogue.

  10. Jam Session: What Improvisation Can Teach Us About Design

    Have you ever had a spontaneous creative triumph, perfectly in sync with your team?

    A passionate believer in improvisation as a design skill, Hannah’s session will talk about the importance of this technique in her own design process and what lessons can be borrowed from improvised music.

    From the jazz masters to the humble basement band practice, musical concepts such as timing, structure, rolls and expression have many lessons for designers creating an off-the-cuff interface.

    Hannah will explore how the methods of music translate for a design/development team, as well as sharing personal stories and techniques for those times when you need a bit of a jam session.

    Originally from Canada’s icy north, Hannah Donovan is creative director at Last.fm, where she’s worked for the last four years. Before moving to London, she designed websites for Canada’s largest youth-focused agency, working on brands such as Hershey, Heineken and Bic. Hannah also plays the cello with an orchestra and draws monsters.
