Take time to watch this TEDTalk by Steven B. Johnson about how networks and connections are the true nurturers of innovation. His new book, Where Good Ideas Come From, is released on October 5, 2010 and will be in my hands that same day. As I watched this talk I was constantly thinking how his insight can influence the classroom and educational practice.
