Tim Brown – Powerful Link Between Creativity and Play

I came across this great video from Tim Brown of IDEO about creativity and play that I thought I would share with you:

It is interesting as you watch the video to think about what narrowing behaviors you’ve taken on as an adult, and to think about how you might step outside them to achieve greater creativity.

As I was watching the video, I found myself wondering why design is not part of the core curriculum for students growing up and going through elementary school and high school.

I know there are movements out there to merge b-school and d-school thinking, but it’s a lot more work to get people to unlearn old behaviors and learn new ones. How much more efficient and enjoyable would our society be if we all thought like designers?

What do you think?
