No Right Brain Left Behind

Related to yesterday’s post, FastCompany is asking for the best ideas on reinventing education.  A coalition of groups has formed No Right Brain Left Behind, a campaign developed to promote creativity in education.  The campaign is offering a contest built around the idea of attracting minds from a variety of industries to propose solutions for promoting creativity in education:

As part of Social Media Week 2011, next week in New York City, No Right Brain Left Behind is challenging industry teams (advertising, interactive, marketing, design, what-have-you) to come up with products and approaches that work within or outside the existing school system. These will be piloted by the end of 2011.

“What drives us is the possibility of a platform where the creative industries put their differences aside for one week out of the year to collaborate on something that is larger than ourselves and our business goals,” says Viktor Venson of multimedia and interactive agency Stopp, a driving force behind the campaign. ” If adopted, this would be an annual challenge asking the creative industries to respond to a burning issue or cause.”

Here’s the No Right Brain Left Behind presentation highlighting some of the most interesting ideas in education to date.  Be sure to take a look.
