u2 conference: creative life of Bono and implications for talent development

Full paper here, plus 3 more.

We’ve lost idealism, that anything is possible.

Bono the rock star. Bono the humanitarian. Insight gained through Bono: In Conversation with Michka Assayas. Sees integration.

Joseph Renzulli. Understanding giftedness, if we create conditions, can help society. Need to focus on gifted behaviours, by creating environments for people to show these. Giftedness is about the interaction of ability and creativity and drive. It is interaction of nature and nurture.

Operation Houndstooth. Optimism. Courage. Romance with a topic/discipline. Sensitivity to human concerns. Physical and mental energy. Vision/sense of destiny.

How to develop social capital? What causes some people to want to mobilise themselves to solve world’s problems? Bono: ideas are melodies that need to be heart.

Joseph Renzulli’s enrichment triad model. General exploratory activities (videos, speakers); group training (The Kid’s Guide to Social Action: How to Solve the Social Problems You Choose-And Turn Creative Thinking into Positive Action by Barbara Lewis); creating solutions.
