What We Know Often Gets In The Way of Possibility

To end the week, take a few minutes out of your day to explore what is possible because this fun TED Talk by Jay Silver will just about blow your mind.

For example, Jay asks the question – Why can’t two slices of pizza be used as a slide clicker? Why shouldn’t you make music with ketchup?

Jay talks about the urge to play with the world around us, and how what we know often gets in the way of what is possible in our lives, and – my thinking is – therefore what is possible in our schools, our workplace, our relationships.

Imagine what would be possible if… we could create a new possibility from something we already know, eg a difficult student, a team that doesn’t work well together, a school system that is solely focused on grades, that play is childish, …

What would you like to make possible?
