Every once in a while, I come across something that makes me think, DAMN IT. I want to be a part of this! And often I can’t, because I’m stuck in Singapore as bonded labour, or I don’t have the moolah to make it happen, or I’m just plain lazy and just continue watching Greys Anatomy or something. But then I stumbled upon the No Right Brains Left Behind idea, and it’s the kind of thing that you are already involved in, whether you know it or not.

When Singapore added inculcating creativity and innovation to it’s agenda, [flashback to my Creative Thinking class in Year 1 of university…] I wasn’t surprised. Its evidently an area most of Singapore isn’t seen as getting straight A’s for, and certainly not one of the top five adjectives you’d use to describe this city state [efficient x5?]

So here is an innovative and social process that taps on the best minds in education and creativity, to come up with ‘tools to solve 21st century problems for the creative crisis in US education.’ Revolutionary. But when you have minds like Sir Ken Robinson, Bogusky, Piers Fawkes etc etc (including Jason Oke, who I recently had the chance to meet) – how can it not be?

Singapore, stay tuned and take notes!
