Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work wants to help educators figure out how to do it.
The project started in 2007 at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and the two co-directors, Rita J. King and Joshua Fouts, say we're presently in an "Imagination Age," "a time during which humanity must imagine and then create, together, the systems of the new global economy and culture." The duo actually created a lab to test ways educators can most effectively build imagination and creativity in real teaching situations.
Instead of simply putting their research on how to foster imagination, creativity, and conceptual thinking into a report, King and Fouts decided to create a free, easy-to-use web portal that's full of the ideas and solutions that they've found work best."
