  1. Neat talk!

    I think he’s dead-on in identifying what will be ‘most useful’ to humanity in the coming half-century: a willingness to be creative at the expense of possibly ‘being wrong’, especially if all that determines ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ is unchallenged misconceptions.

    ‘If you are not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.’

    He uses ‘prepared’ directly and to the point: educating for creative thinking requires that we prepare students to discover things for themselves, by trial and error if necessary. Education has been formalized to keep some of that MIckey-Mouse to a minimum, no doubt… and at what cost?
