How to think, not what to think

"Creative and critical thinking are two sides of the same coin, two parts of an equation that add up to have to think. What is really interesting is that something happens when our mind is trained to think both creatively and critically because that equation adds up to more than just the sum of its parts"
Jesse Richardson is the founder of The School of Thought, an online education platform that will provide courses, content, and other resources that teach creative and critical thinking skills to anyone and everyone, for free. He believes that we are entering one of the most pivotal times in human history, and our ability to adapt and think rationally is becoming increasingly important to our economy, society, and survival. "We need to teach children how to think rather than what to think" (Margaret Mead). Jesse is also a creative director with over 15 years industry experience, and around 20 years experience arguing with people on the internet. Very interesting talk.
