What If You Learn Like a Coyote?
Think you're intelligent? How would you measure up against a coyote?
What are the first three characteristics you think of when you think of a coyote?
Now, what do--our could---any of them have to do with learning?
In Coyote America, author Dan Flores points out in his Introduction titled, "American Avatar": "... one important similarity we and coyotes share across our long histories is a reliance on problem-solving intelligence for success..."
This opened a floodgate of curiosities.
One curiosity in particular was what if we taught for and measured Problem-Solving Intelligence (PSQ?) the way we measure IQ and and are starting with EQ?
What can we learn about how coyotes problem-solve to help us become better problem-solvers?
As learners and educators, how are we incorporating problem-solving in our learning experiences?
As entrepreneurs and innovators, how are we improving our problem-solving abilities?
As executives and leaders how are we creating strategies and cultures rooted in problem-solving?
I am very curious to learn what others think we could learn from coyotes to help us become better problem-solvers and humans.
