Post Title: Creativity, innovation, and risk
By Jon Bunch, Feed Name: Jon Bunch
Preview: #CMC11Examining at the creativity and innovation aspects from a business perspective was interesting to me as experience has taught me that companies can create new products or offer new services that sets them apart from their competitors. Without these key factors a business is likely to fall by the wayside while other companies that manage their risk investment while cultivating ingenuity ....

Post Title: On PLEs
By Mike, Feed Name: ESC Creativity and Multicultural Communication

After all, the whole point of a MOOC is getting the input of so many different people together at the same time. Stephen Downes really focused on this point, highlighting ....

Ever since I was very young, my family moved around a lot. So I've lived in many different states, and that pretty much set me up for the rest of my life. Currently, I am living in western China, near the Tibetan border. It's a beautiful ....

Title: Creativity
Preview: This is more of a suggested resource than a discussion though discussing the content of the article would be great. The March 2013 Scientific American has an article called: "Evolution of Creativity the rise of the innovative mind" that covers a number of topics related to idea formation in the self and in society. Good synthesis of research from a number of sources--worth ...

Discussion on Facebook stays in Facebook. Fight Club rules are not connectivist: neither is the Facebook universal walled garden mission There are also complications to using Discussion for commenting on ....
