I was recently reminded of this video by Maria Popova via Google+ and I felt it needed to be shared.
I’m always harping on about creativity in education and the importance of good communication. I couldn’t agree more with Steven Johnson when he says that innovation over the ages has increased as we have experienced more sharing of ideas and greater opportunities for collaboration. This is why I love social media and communication tools, including an old fashioned chat over a cuppa or “fly cup” as my grandma would say. Talking and sharing and discussing is how creativity sparks and how great ideas happen. Enjoy the video and the graphic and please share your thoughts.
