We live in revolutionary times
We have to think differently about everything – “Out of our minds – learning to be creative” rewritten
Change is accelerating – tools have expanded our mind and expanded our reach. Most have unintended consequences too. All tools are useless without the creative power of our minds. But they can also distract us, send us in the wrong direction too.
World has changed due to population growth, urbanisation, industrial farming (focused on yield regardless of consequences). We also have industrialised education which is no more sustainable than farming.
There is a movement to organic farming which focuses on the soil.
So what about organic education??
The revolution needs to come from the ground up – not the top down.
Only special people are creative

You can’t do much about your creativity.
Creativity is putting your imagination to work.

Amazing example of impact of the right answer on creativity. (Find link)
It’s urgent that we recreate education now!!
