Well, an upcoming conference dubbed the Imagination Summit will explore ways to make imagination an integral part of American education. Speakers at the two-day event in New York City bring expertise in a variety of sectors, from education and science to business and the arts.
"Imagination—the ability to visualize new possibilities—is a skill that can and must be taught to students at every level," said Scott Noppe-Brandon, the executive director of the Lincoln Center Institute, in a recent press release. The institute, which is the educational arm of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, is organizing the summit. (Erik Robelen at Education Week)
