To Get Creative, Get Walking | Education, Technology and a Digital World | Scoop.it
Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple, was known for his walking meetings. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has also been seen holding meetings on foot. And perhaps you’ve paced back and forth on occasion to drum up ideas.

One aspect of the project that we are particularly excited about is highlighting the role of creativity in mathematics research. All mathematicians tell us that doing original mathematics is highly creative – but what exactly do they mean by that? We asked some researchers from a range of subjects about the role of creativity in their work.

Recent survey states that 93% of employers say critical thinking skills and ability to solve complex problems is more important than an employees major.  Good luck trying to figure that out based on a resume though.  Has anyone seen/experienced methods for determining these skills from job candidates?

We're About to Tell You the Secret to Creativity, and You May NOT Want to Sit Down - InformED | Education, Technology and a Digital World | Scoop.it

The study found that walking indoors or outdoors similarly boosted creative inspiration. The act of walking itself, and not the environment, was the main factor. A person walking indoors – on a treadmill in a room facing a blank wall – produced twice as many creative responses compared to a person sitting down.

Anne Whisken's curator insight, May 8, 7:51 PM

'It’s important to note that, according to the study, the type of creativity affected by walking is associated with “divergent,” rather than “convergent,” thinking. In other words, walking benefits creative brainstorming but not the kind of focused thinking required for single, correct answers.'
