    The method to fostering innovation is the same today and it was during the Great Depression.  NECESSITY!  People are resilient able to take an idea, add some honest faith, and turn that idea into a reality!

    So, how do you teach someone to get up? Knock them down! But be prepared for when they jump back up and marvel at the wonder of the human spirit.  What we need to do is to remind people to "Keep the Faith!"

    Ken I am in complete agreement - necessity. A perfect world is not ideal as it is those who live on the fringe who are most creative.

    questions and the art of questionning.  Encourage even young children to question and help them find answers.  When they start asking questions with no satisfactory answer we are on the path to innovation. Innovation is creative problem solving but the right question has to come first.  It is not a chicken or egg scenario!

    Stop testing kids every two seconds. Stop testing people just to get a job. Stop testing people to get into college. Stop measuring intelligence based on testing. Stop handing attention to people who do well on tests.

    Standardized tests are the killers of innovation and creativity.
