Creating Innovators

When information is ubiquitous and free, and when basic education is available to billions of people worldwide, only one set of skills can ensure this generation's economic future: the capacity for innovation. What must parents, teachers, mentors, and employers do to develop the capacities of many more young people to be the innovators that they want to be—and that we need them to become? What do the best schools and colleges do to teach the skills of innovation? In a talk based on his latest book, Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change The World, Tony Wagner addresses questions vital to the future of our country.
