The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces

The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces | Creative Process | Scoop.it

Classrooms should be spaces that students don’t want to leave.  Some communities are still hesitant about these futuristic looking learning spaces and have resorted to older, traditional physical spaces. Hopefully, they will begin to embrace changes to better prepare students and move them in the 21st century global economy.

While I do not ascribe to everything mentioned in this post, there is much to commend it.

Schools and the learning spaces within them should be engaging and attractive places for children in which to learn. Outside of their home, school is where they spend a significant portion of their lives.

After @Hannah Kramershared a great post about Creativity being more important for startup entrepreneurs than passion I wanted to weigh in and share related experience growing up with the right side of the brain being my dominant hemisphere (lol).

* Creativity Bigger Predictor Than Intelligence.
* Creativity Can Be A Hard Row To Hoe.
* Creativity & Structure.
* Creativity can be learned and taught.

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students

5 Strategies For Creating A Genius Mindset In Students | Creative Process | Scoop.it

"When we hear the word genius, certain people come immediately to mind—Albert Einstein in mathematics, or Warren Buffett in investing—but what exactly sets these people apart?

It’s easy to simply shrug and say to ourselves, “Those people are just different.  They have something most people don’t, and it’s as simple as that.”

But the steps taken to arrive at a place of genius are actually more concrete, and have less to do with innate talent, than you might think.

When it comes to cultivating intelligence, mindset is a huge factor..."
