Huddle Up is a transformative learning platform aiming to move beyond videos and quizzes. Learning is solution-focused and leverages the power of quantitative feedback to make individual and organization learning more data-centric, collaborative, and real world.
Who's more creative? Author Tom Wujec tells us in his TED talk, “Build a Tower, Build a Team”, The Marshmallow Challenge : a collaborative task where team members are asked to build the tallest structure possible out of a select group of materials. He reveals that out of all the various age groups tested, kindergarteners are typically the most successful, outperforming most post-grad students in both structure height and creativity. Younger children have a more unhindered thought process, one that isn’t limited by past experiences and fear of suggesting something too radical. As Toffler Associates describes*, when the kids are able to think for themselves at their own pace, “they are inclined to develop completely fresh solutions to a central problem”; they approach it as interdisciplinary, “not linear and results focused”. As I touched on in my last post, the “Four C’s” are the ideal 21st century blueprint for teaching our students and for hiring employees who add value. Compan
