Innovation Speaker John Maeda Says Art Can Help The Economy [VIDEO]
As Maeda explains, the incorporation of the arts expands the way that students think as well as the way that they learn. Thanks to his efforts, the Congressional STEAM Caucus has recently been launched—making this new way of learning a government priority. Incorporating arts and design into these core learning strategies will help shape the innovators of the future and sculpt better and more effective leaders. Having experience as an artist, designer, and educator, Maeda has seen the potential that a more interdisciplinary learning environment can have firsthand. In his keynotes, he promotes the exciting and important ways that people are rethinking the use of art and design—and what we all stand to gain from that changing mindset.
