Today my fellow DK'er Brandon Hilliard and I spent the day with some amazing students at International School in Bellevue. We were invited by Washington State Teacher Leader Kristin Leong to be a part of her "Media Madness" Focus Week program which gave accelerated students a glimpse into different creative jobs and industries.
We gave the kids a crash course in advertising and brainstorming and they blew us away with their intuitive creative problem solving. We redesigned the common trash can, threw tennis balls at each other and came up with campaigns for a talking artichoke.
To quote the great philosopher Whitney Houston, "I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way."
