Coming up! Join us at 9PDT/12 EDT as we talk with Artist Nick Sousanis on the Power of Visuals (& Comics) on Learning & Creativity.

Apparently Nick's first word was 'Batman'. [His brother, 8 years older was into comics!]

See you soon! http://bit.ly/cipsousanis
We'll explore what happens when we bring more visual images and visual thinking -- including comics -- into teaching, learning and creativity. Our guest is comics artist and educator Nick Sousanis, who received a doctorate in education from Teachers College, Columbia University, where he wrote and drew his dissertation entirely in comic book form. His dissertation has been published as the book, Unflattening.

"To understand dreams and reclaim the practice of imagination, we must look to the master teachers; our inner children and the children around us. When very young, children know how to go to magic kingdoms without paying for tickets, because they are at home in the imagination and live close to their dreams.”
~Robert Moss
