  2. 2. “There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations.”
  3. 3. remix: defined
  4. 4. Everything is a remix. - Kirby Ferguson
  5. 5. WHY?
  6. 6. They must know how to link apparently unconnected elements to create something new. People who hope to thrive in the Conceptual Age must understand the connection between diverse, and seemingly separate disciplines. -- Daniel Pink in AWhole New Mind
  7. 7. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and SYNTHESIZE new things. - Steve Jobs, 1995
  8. 8. An idea is nothing more or less than a new combination of old elements. new combination old elements James Webb Young, 1940 A Technique for Producing Ideas
  9. 9. The capacity to bring old elements into new combinations depends largely on the ability to see relationships. new combination old elements James Webb Young, 1940 A Technique for Producing Ideas

  18. 18. Non-Examples It’s like The Three Little Pigs, but they’re dogs. Instead of a brick house, it’s made of stone. The pigs will live in a desert!
  19. 19. REMIXCONTENT + CREATIVITY + TECHNOLOGY PERSUADE
  20. 20. How do the changes make the story better? 9. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
  21. 21. Persuasion Three Martians is a suspenseful, sci-fi take on The Three Little Pigs. It takes the classic story and retells it for an older audience. There is real danger for the characters as they try to stop the robot while keeping it working so they can return to earth.
