Interesting Tid-Bits

June 27, 2011

Not sure where these came from but they have been in “draft” position for some time. Combining them into one post for your convenience.

  • Article, February 4, 2011, called Working with Your Hands by Mike Collins, Author, Saving American Manufacturing.
  • Interesting site called Creative Directions about integrating the arts, mostly drama, with other content. There are resources listed as well.
  • This is a terrific article, March 31, 2011, Want Innovative Thinking? Hire from the Humanities by Tony Golsby-Smith. Harvard Business Review. I LOVE this, part of the article: Innovation. If you want out-of-the-box thinking, you need to free up people’s inherent creativity. Humanists are trained to be creative and are uniquely adapted to leading creative teams. (A case in point: Steve Jobs, who openly acknowledges how studying the beautiful art of calligraphy led him to design the Macintosh interface.)
  • Article came through in Education Week under the topic of The Futures of School Reform. It’s called 21st Century Education Requires Lifewide Learning and was written by Chris Dede, April 12, 2011.
  • This is from November 2, 2010 but I found it interesting. How to Make a Humanoid Robot Dance, by Erico Guizzo, Inside Technology Spectrum, Automation.
  • From Education Week, Untangling Hip-Hop for the Classroom, by Floyd D. Beachum, February 7, 2011.
