Arts will fuel technology

Some help from Patricia

Design and innovation impact every aspect of the world around us. Everything made by humanity has been designed in some way. Sometimes the design is intentional and elegant; many times it is unintentional and far from optimal.

This is one of many reasons why integrating arts is so important to our children’s education.  Arts nurture skills like creativity.  Arts reinforce the search for perfection when there is no definitive right answers.  Arts teach skills that a traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum cannot achieve.  

This is one of the topics being discussed at the World Economic Forum.  Creativity is vital to improving the well-being of our world and of our future.  Creativity creates well-rounded individuals.  Creativity underpin out-of-the-box thinking that can in fact fuel technological innovations.  And it is creativity that will empower us to redesign an education system that would be suit the true needs of our future economy.
