INSIDE THE BOX

Episode 1: Origins

LISTEN TO THE ORIGINS OF OUR POD-CONTENT

Episode 1: Origins

In the early 1970s, a psychologist named J. P. Guilford set out to study creativity as a natural extension of his work in human psychology. One of Guilford’s most famous studies was the infamous nine-dot puzzle, aligned in a 3-by-3, box-shaped grid. He tasked participants with connecting all nine dots without lifting pen from page.

The solution requires moving outside the constraints of the box to extend lines beyond the grid’s borders. Hence, thinking outside the box.

In our inaugural episode, we’ll explore the ways in which our constraints facilitate our creative potential. And we’ll, of course, examine solutions to these limitations – both inside the classroom and out.
