Think Outside of the Rubber Band

Robert Scoble shared the story of Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford University, and I think this project is a microcosm for the type of creative thinking that needs to be brought to 21st century classrooms.

This high quality video link provides an overview of the importance of imagination and provides and introduction to the project that launched in 2007 with the post-it note.

The Scobleizer couldn't resist a quick interview with the producer of the documentary "Imagine it":

The idea of creating value from an everyday object is something that might just help us to revolutionize our classrooms... let's start with allowing and encouraging students to think creatively; and for an encore we can start re-imagining the chalkboard!

Love the 'post-it note' concept.

Mundane yet brilliant!

Why didn't I think of that?
