Welsh Government | Minister visits school taking a #creative approach to numeracy

Education Minister Huw Lewis will visit a Tonteg special school today (Monday 8 February) that is adopting a creative approach to learning by taking numeracy out of the classroom.
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

The school’s creative agent and staff carried out a walk through, fact finding morning where pupils identified that some of the areas outside of the classroom are not engaging, inspiring or perhaps being used in the best way possible. They are keen to create visual art that stimulates the senses and engages learners in numeracy.

Creative people’s brains really do work differently

Creative people’s brains really do work differently | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
What makes highly creative people different from the rest of us? In the 1960s, psychologist and creativity researcher Frank X. Barron set about finding out. Barron conducted a series of experiments on some of his generation’s most renowned thinkers in an attempt to isolate the unique spark of creative genius. In a historic study, Barron...
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

the study showed that creativity is informed by a whole host of intellectual, emotional, motivational and moral characteristics. The common traits that people across all creative fields seemed to have in common were an openness to one’s inner life; a preference for complexity and ambiguity; an unusually high tolerance for disorder and disarray; the ability to extract order from chaos; independence; unconventionality; and a willingness to take risks.

Curiosity is an inextinguishable creative spark

Curiosity is an inextinguishable creative spark | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
Not even today’s box-ticking managerialists can stamp out our innate desire to know, says Joe Moran
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

Our myths and religions are full of cautionary tales about curiosity. Pandora, Daedalus, Psyche, Orpheus, Adam and Eve, Lot’s wife: they all succumbed to a curiosity that turned out to be calamitous. During the scientific revolution of the 17th century, when curiosity was finally transformed from a vice to a virtue, its advocates admitted that it could be a voracious beast if left unchecked and not channelled into worthy ends.


Good read in support of curiosity.

Mind of blue: Emotional expression affects the brain's creativity network

Mind of blue: Emotional expression affects the brain's creativity network | Creativity and Learning Insights | Scoop.it
The workings of neural circuits associated with creativity are significantly altered when artists are actively attempting to express emotions, according to a new brain-scanning study of jazz pianists.
Marci Segal, MS's insight:

"The bottom line is that emotion matters," said senior author Charles Limb, MD. "It can't just be a binary situation in which your brain is one way when you're being creative and another way when you're not. Instead, there are greater and lesser degrees of creative states, and different versions. And emotion plays a crucially important role in these differences."
