Art and Education in an Innovation Economy

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject Art - Overall Considerations, San Diego State University, language: English, abstract: According to Business Week Magazine: 'The game is changing ... it isn't just about math and science anymore (although those are surely important disciplines) it's about creativity, imagination, and, above all, innovation.' 1 If creativity and innovation will be the hallmarks of the most successful communities in the 21st century we need to know the answers to the fundamental questions of what makes us creative, innovative, and imaginative. The effort to create a 21st century community is not so much about technology as it is about jobs, dollars and quality of life. It is about organizing one's community to reinvent itself for the new, knowledge economy and society; preparing its citizens to take ownership of their community; and, most importantly, about educating the next generation of leaders and workers to meet the global, social, political and economic challenges we face. This commentary focuses on education and the vital role of the arts in preparing our young people for a new and uncertain future. Although many people still believe that the arts 'are nice but not necessary,' it is becoming increasingly apparent that the arts are not a frill or an ancillary enrichment activity for elites. Indeed, they may be the most important aspect of a 21st century education. Our schools need the arts and an art-infused curriculum to ensure our children's' and our country's competitiveness in the new global innovation economy.

Managing from the Heart
21,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

From the brain trust at The Atlanta Consulting Group comes a simple method hailed as a revolution in management practice: learning to care. Caring isn't a frill. It delivers results. And for some unenlightened managers, learning to care can be a matter of corporate life or death. Managing from the Heart is the story of Harry Hartwell, a composite character drawn from decades of the authors' field experience on the front lines of management reform. Known by his staffers as 'the Abominable No Man,' Harry's remarkable transformation into a caring and compassionate manage offers an easy-to-apply business parable-and an absolutely painless, one-of-a-kind learning experience. Acquire the five principles of caring management. Your people will be glad you did. And so will everyone who keeps an eye on your bottom line. Praise for Managing from the Heart 'Outstanding! Delivers the right message at a critical time.'-Lee A. Robbins, VP and CFO, Puritan Bennett 'Five powerful principles, so simple they are arresting. Their application by every manager can catapult a company to new heights of greatness.'-Don M. Schrello, chairman, Schrello Direct Marketing, Inc. 'Much needed!'-Norman Vincent Peale 'Managing from the Heart is a gift you should give to yourself and your people. It outlines a beautiful philosophy that if applied will not only impact human satisfaction in your organization, but bottom line results.'-Kenneth Blanchard, Ph.D., co-author of The One Minute Manager
