Random Thoughts – Day 1
I am too tired and overwhelmed to bring this all together but I wanted to share some of the random ideas I was “saturated” with today and which I am currently “incubating” on:
The average K12 classroom in the USofA is indeed “boring”
There is no such thing a a “digital native”
Everyone in an organization plays a role in R&D…if they don’t they should be replaced/removed/fired
MySpace is the 3rd largest country in the world
Schools are based on convergence, the world is based on divergence
Johnny Lee is a divergent thinker
I want to create a parady of the old Apple “Think Different” ad for Ewan. It would be called “Think Divergent[ly]”
Be a “retro-planner” not a “pre-planner”
Peer assessment online will lead to summative assessment genius (“2 stars and a wish”)
A Question for tomorrow?
What are the activities that can lead students to divergent ideas/thinking versus brainstorming/convergent ideas/thinking?
