The deepest creativity comes when you run out of ideas...
 
Brad Hokanson - The creative rule of 10

“After people go through about ten ideas for something, generally they get to unusual ideas or things that are completely different, ones that are a lot more creative.”

Brad Hokanson is a professor in the College of Design at the University of Minnesota, where he teaches creative problem solving. His free MOOC on +Coursera, Creative Problem Solving starts Feb. 26, 2014, and lasts 7 weeks.

Very cool. I'd add OpenLearning to the mix, they have an easy to use platform that has some nice social features...

This is a very nice, clear explanation--unfortunately the loud background music is completely distracting.

Go Extinct! It's Go Fish + Science
A game that is as easy to learn as Go Fish!, teaches kids about clades and the evolutionary relationships between animals, and looks very pretty as well: http://kck.st/1hm5sCx 

It plays much like Go Fish! except that instead of sets you collect clades, which are shown on the board. That also adds a twist to the game, as clades contain other clades (eg. monotremes are a clade within mammals). Pretty clever.
What is also clever is that this game can be played by 5th graders, yet teaches biological concepts that are unfamiliar to most adults (for some reason our understanding of biological relationships is still deeply rooted in 19th century concepts).

In short it's a great game/project, but it needs funding, so if you have a few bucks to spare to help teach kids about evolution (or want to own the game yourself) go to their kickstarter page:
