Speaker: Dr. Bettina Love

In this clip from her transformative 2016 Conference keynote presentation, Dr. Bettina Love explores the way that cultural memory (i.e. the rituals, norms, and forms of expression that are ingrained in our daily experience) plays a role in youth creativity. She explains that all students have a cultural memory--even if it is not the one that a teacher may be familiary with--and it is the job of the educator to draw upon and ignite that creative source.
