Do not make the mistake of thinking knowledge is above all. It is merely trivia that is changing day by day and you will see that in history itself. You should rather spend more focus in developing a more open mind that is receptive to new ideas.

California Congressional Candidate Calls Donald Trump A ‘Bully’ In New Ad

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2017/02/14/sara-hernandez-trump-bully_n_14740296.html

Congressional campaign ads targeting President Donald Trump appear to be off to an early start, with one candidate in California already asking voters: “How do you stop a bully?”

The TV ad, which the Los Angeles Times reports first aired Monday, begins and ends with black-and-white close-ups of an angry Trump.

How do you stop a bully? Democratic candidate Sara Hernandez of Los Angeles says it takes a teacher like her. With lines reminiscent of Trump’s “outsider” campaign message, however, she also emphasizes that she’s not “part of the establishment or special interests,” and that she’s been kicking “real butt” for the community. “Take Trump back to school,” the 30-second spot concludes. 

It’s too early in the game to know how well Hernandez, a lawyer who has worked as a city council aide and nonprofit head, will fare in the race for the 34th Congressional District. Twenty-three candidates are running for the position that opened up when Xavier Becerra became state’s attorney general.

The ad is likely a taste of things to come in the lead-up to April’s primary race. 

Fourth-term Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) was the first Republican in the nation to take on Trump with a paid advertisement before he even became president, Politico reported in August.

“People ask me, ‘What do you think about Trump?’” Coffman says at the start of the ad. “Honestly, I don’t care for him much.” (He says the same about Hillary Clinton.)

The Iraq War vet adds: “If Donald Trump is president, I’ll stand up to him, plain and simple.”

He offered the same ad in Spanish. Latinos make up some 20 percent of the 6th Congressional District, which includes suburban Denver. Coffman likely declared his stance early because his district tends to be hotly contested and Trump supporters could face an uphill battle, Politico notes.

But some of Coffman’s constituents were angry last month when he and three other GOP representatives from Colorado backed steps to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, just the way Trump wanted them to. Coffman ducked out of a local meeting to find several frustrated voters waiting to talk to him about the issue.

As for the rest of the country, campaigns will be heating up soon.

The Association of American Colleges and Universities Embraces Design Thinking

The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU)) meeting this month (February 23-25) in Phoenix announced its upcoming General Education and Assessment Conference. The focus: “Design Thinking for Student Learning.”

But what is design thinking and why now is it so important?

According to AACU, “General education sits at the intersection of an array of demands facing higher education–demands for more intentionally scaffolded, integrated, and engaged approaches to teaching and learning; more campus-community partnerships; more mentoring and advising; more multimodal learning experiences; and, above all, more meaningful assessment of student learning across these efforts.”

The magazine Fast Company says design thinking is “The methodology commonly referred to as design thinking is a proven and repeatable problem-solving protocol that any business or profession can employ to achieve extraordinary results.” Forbes Magazine describes it “in its simplest form, design thinking is a process–applicable to all walks of life–of creating new and innovative ideas and solving problems. It is not limited to a specific industry or area of expertise.”

But what is it really?

It’s learning how to think, and think about what you think. It’s seeing a problem in its entirety, thinking “outside the box”, or as academics might put it: it’s divergent versus convergent thinking. Divergent thinking is a thought process that explores all the possible solutions before coming to any one conclusion. Convergent thinking doesn’t explore all the possibilities but zeros in on a solution by “manipulating existing knowledge by means of standard procedures.” It a quicker process, one most of us are familiar with because that’s how we are conditioned to think.

Divergent thinking takes time, it usually comes after brainstorming an idea, but it has been proven to result in more creative solutions.

I asked a few of my colleagues at San Diego State University (SDSU) about design thinking. Joe Alter who teaches dance looked at paper cup while we were having coffee and asked me what was that was. I said, somewhat proudly, it’s a container for holding coffee, maybe tea. He then said if you gave the cup to a 4 year old they might build a house or a car with it.

Kotaro Nakamura an architect by profession who also heads the School of Art and Design took me through the paces when he talked about asking his classes to draw a house, and they all showed a house with a chimney, windows, a roof etc. They all looked alike. Then he asked them how many people in their family, whether they ate together, what part of the country they lived-rural or urban setting, warm weather or not-and so forth. Then he asks them to draw a house again. Obviously it was a much different house.

That’s design thinking at work.

As the Internet and worldwide web enables every nation, every community and every individual to compete with every other it challenges the U.S. as never before. As outsourcing, off offshoring and the increased use of technology-call it automation-continues to change and shrink the workforce, life long learning is the new normal, and design thinking is critical to preparing university graduates with the thinking skills to succeed in the new economy, an economy where creative and innovative problem solving is vital.

Fortunately, more and more educators are either adding to their existing curriculum, offering workshops to their teachers, or infusing every course with new teaching methods to get their students to think differently.
