I enjoyed Alicia’s presentation on creativity, aging and multiculturalism. Her exercise for us was simple, but powerful She had us first think of ways to improve education. Then, she had us think again of ways to improve education, but with the ideas coming from someone whom we admired. The mindset for each of us truly shifted and we could see the differences in our postings in the chat area. Amazing.
There were definite parallels with what Stephen Downes had said about connectivism. The mind is an amazing thing!
