• #ACPA15 Tony Doody: Curiosity, Chaos & a Kid in a Candy Shop

    As children, our propensity for asking questions disappears rapidly and steadily as we approach adulthood. Our schools reinforce this decline by rewarding the importance of being “correct,” rather than being “curious.” In this PechaKucha, Tony masterfully combines research, stories of personal discovery, and powerful images (of his children) to encourage us to learn and develop skills and behaviors that encourage a lifetime of learning. He concludes that in our world of global information and fast-paced technological change–the curious will win.
