Fabulous inspiration for making some inspirational and creative curriuculum links.
Watch, listen and enjoy.
Oh, and then go and look at the other gems of inspiration on this site (I particualrly like “We are all Connected”). I love this site! www.symphonyofscience.com
The Higgs Boson Explained from PHD Comics on Vimeo.
Just take 8 minutes out of your busy day and watch this awesome explanation of The Higgs Bosun and what they’re up to over at the Large Hadron Collider. For those of us who are constantly trying to find ways to celebrate clever-endeavour and the joy of intelligent curiousity, this creative and engaging animation is a pretty good way to start.
Just imagine the discussions that could stem from this…
Here’s a fantastic TEDx talk from Charles Limb for you. This one is all about creative learning and thinking and made me make some links to some research and development into the inter-relationship between curriculum subjects. If you ever want to demonstrate the absolute need for cross-curricular projects and for collaboration between subject experts, external visitors from professional fields. (Thanks to @limeandginger for tweeting it to me).
The questions he ends with (as all good scientists should end with questions rather than answers, shouldn’t they?!) are as follows:
What is creative genius?
Why does the brain seek creativity?
How do we acquire creativity?
What factors disrupt creativity?
Can creative behaviour be learned?
Now there’s some excellent enquiry questions to get stuck into…
