We were looking for all the “Thinks you Can Think” as went to see Suessical the Musical at Miller Outdoor theatre. My favorite book I read to my students even in high school. Instead my 3 year old granddaughter took the book “The Imagineering Way – Ideas to Ignite your Creativity”. I bought this in 2004 when I presented at the AP CS conference on Programming with Graphics. That led to re-discovering Figment.
My granddaughter made me leave her photo upside down, cute. She is making music now with her animal’s tail, a temporary Figment, which she just called, a good dinosaur. Such creativity. If only this could be her life in the classroom K-12; connecting the dots with creative conversation. She just told me I have to look at what she is doing. She told me to turn my face to see him do a head stand. I said I have to think, as someone mentioned to me they liked Disney. I remembered. It was yesterday at the University of Houston where I went to see a student I am mentoring who earned an internship at the Brain Research center. She is creating a comic book. So many connections; just need to turn the dots into collaborative creative action.
May be a figment of my imagination, but I think SBISD and I are going down parallel pathways. I believe it would be more efficient and effective if were going together. Maybe then we could take a giant leap.
