Craving Creativity

I know my kids wish their classes involved more creativity.  And so do I!

So, here’s a short video of a TEDx talk given in 2011 by a man named Mark Slavkin, on a topic I find interesting (to put it mildly), the transformation of education via creativity:

In this talk Mr. Slavkin mentions a creativity index for schools, being designed and developed in Massachusetts.  Anyone know more about this?  There was a bit of commentary in the news and on blogs about a year ago … some that even mentioned Rhode Island was starting a conversation about doing something similar … what’s the latest news on that front, I wonder?

How do you think our local schools are doing in providing our children with opportunities for creativity?
