What fuels creativity?

What fuels creativity? | Creative Education and Digital Media | Scoop.it
Is creativity a divine gift that few are born with or something that can be taught?
Muhammad Seedat's insight:

David Burkus, author of "Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Ideas,", gives a insight about creativity on CBS"This Mourning Saturday". What outstands more on the interview is the idea of brainstorm not being always useful to generate fantastic ideas. I agree with Burkus, because ideas should mature to develop and the evolution of the idea can have growth in different enviroments with new observations and influences.

Wow! I have never seen so powerful and critical a set of messages for all educators to take cognizance of - we need to remain relevant or be side-lined in our roles as teachers. Thank you for sharing - I am going to send it out to my network of educators as it is truly AWESOME! Thank you so much.

Great presentation to make us educators stop and think.  It can be very empowering with the right approach.  My favourite (among many) quotes:  "If you don't like change, you are going to like irrelevance even less..."

Kurt Squire on Civic Engagement Through Digital Games (Big Thinkers Series)

Kurt Squire on Civic Engagement Through Digital Games (Big Thinkers Series) | Creative Education and Digital Media | Scoop.it
Game-based learning scholar Kurt Squire explores how leveraging young people's interest in gaming could encourage greater youth community involvement and deeper connections to civic and political life.
Muhammad Seedat's insight:

Great idea! Adolescents and many young adults tender to not have interest in civic and political life and the main reason is because how topics are presented in anot stimulating way. By playing videogames where they be stimulated to be evolved in a community, youngsters can feel the importance and be encouraged to change.

Duolingo – Free Language Education for the World

Duolingo – Free Language Education for the World | Creative Education and Digital Media | Scoop.it

"Free Language Education for the World

Duolingo is building a world with free education and no language barriers."

Muhammad Seedat's insight:

With more than 5 million monthly active users duolingo raises the question about education dystopia. Machines are joining people to learn more but in a other hand removes contact between classmates and teacher, creates a more solitary education.

Altrough duolingo is very powerfull and growing tool to learn languages.
