Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 1, 2013 10:42 AM

It is a hoax!  Great analogy.......life is a musical thing and we should be dancing as we go.  Goals are wonderful and necessary ( to me) but we must be present and stay aware of the ride.  It is a ride.  

 

I have children who are young adults. Praying they heard my message and take their time, experiencing everything by being present. I hope they take as long as they need to be college learners; to stay learners for life.  Racing to the mortgage is an error many of us made.  What a mistake!

The Mind's Eye: An Important Metacognitive Tool For Creative Thought

The Mind's Eye: An Important Metacognitive Tool For Creative Thought | Building Resilient Students | Scoop.it

A wonderful resource on creativity and metacognition.  

 

Includes lots of information:  "What is creativity:  

1. Novelty- a creative product, course of action or idea necessarily departs from the familiar; 2. Effectiveness- it works, in the sense that it achieves some end- this may be aesthetic, artistic or spiritual, but may also be material such as winning or making profit; 3. Ethicality- the term creative is not usually used to describe selfish or destructive behaviour, crimes, war-mongering and the like (Cropely 2010). Although Gardner asserts that creativity is amoral: novel useful ideas or products could either bring benefits or wreak havoc (Moran 2010). For example the science behind nuclear weapons systems could be considered to be creative in conception.   Moves along to discuss how to teach for creativity:  https://sites.google.com/site/creativityinpractice/conclusion
