 Discussion Questions 

  • Creativity in the workplace: do we have any? where is it? what’s lost?
  • Kids take chances - can we? What are the barriers to taking a chance? Are we prepared to be wrong? What have our biggest ‘wrongs’ been?
  • We squander tremendous talents; what are the tremendous talents in LTS? how can we stop this happening?
  • We have no idea what is going to happen in the future; how do we teach kids (and guide their teachers) when we don’t know how?
  • Hierarchies and their role in decision-making, workflows, coverage, time, attention
  • University professors: How can we make sure that what we do is more ‘real’? Is the ‘real’ the same in the minds of teachers, learners, Government? What is ‘real’?

Brilliant page Jackie.... great resources and excellent questions. I am a great fan of Sir Ken's but had never come across the Blue Man Group's amazing school I have already investigated further! Thanks again.
