Wow! Dean Shareski's keynote for this year's Flat Classroom Project (Vicki Davis and Julie Lindsey) is just a great discussion of the elements of design & things to think about as students (anyone) create their projects. The FCP is utilizing Daniel Pink's A Whole New Mind as part of their framework this year, and Shareski uses these elements as talking points in his keynote.
I shared the video with my high school daughter (our artist in residence), because I thought it so spoke to her, her strengths and interests.
Here it is--wow!
