Links to five things that have been inspiring me this week.
In no particular order:
- Innovation/Leadership: Fast Company Design lifts up Apple and IKEA and offers an argument for why designers–not users–should drive innovation.
- Wellness: Good.is reports that youth in a Naperville, Illinois, high school who participated in physical activity just before classes improved reading and math scores. What if we had fitness classes before
- Education: RSA Animate offers a video illustration of one of Sir Ken Robinson’s talks on how our education systems are killing creativity.
- Technology/Youth Ministry: danah boyd writes about teens, Twitter, and managing privacy in public. A favorite line from the article: “Access to content is not the same as access to interpretation.”
- Ministry: Rachel Held Evans reflects on the Epic Fail Pastors’ Conference and encourages pastors to tell the truth and be more transparent with their own struggles.
