The Creativity Mindset

The Creativity Mindset | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it
I absolutely love all of the emphasis on mindsets these days. There are growth mindsets (which I discuss in The Educator with a Growth Mindset: A Staff Workshop) and maker mindsets (which I discuss...

Thanks, Beth Dichter. I find the mindsets very understandable and appealing, much like the science habits of mind.
SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, April 6, 2015 11:48 AM

We must stop educating students out of their creativity and foster an environment that celebrates the creative genius of the students entrusted to our care.

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Deborah Welsh's insight:

We often don't see the creativity in ourselves or in others. Creativity can be learned. Having a growth mindset is a good beginning.

Thanks Allan!

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Josie Gibson's curator insight, June 8, 2014 9:24 PM

Some excellent reminders - 'All experiences are neutral...you don't see things are THEY are, you see them as YOU are'.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2014 1:27 PM

Don't let your creative juices run dry! We are all students of life!

So simple, yet so profound.  Sir Ken Robinson delivers a clear message about why there are so many problems in education today.  Delivered with humor and then a one-two punch.  Worth watching!

Deborah Welsh's comment, May 14, 2013 10:55 PM
Schools as culturally contradictory places, based on conformity. We give them "low-grade clerical work" and expect great things.

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset

How Educators Can Assist Learners in Developing a Growth Mindset | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

"Coaches operate with an underlying assumption that giving advice to others undermines the confidence and self-worth of others.  Others don’t need to be fixed.  In teaching we need to move to exactly this stance in order to foster creativity in our students–to allow our students the choice, control, novelty and challenge that builds their creativity. 


Without the assumption that our students are already competent, imaginative, and ready to burst forth with regular exhibitions of novel and valuable ideas and products, we are limiting their creative capacities before they’ve even had a chance to discover them."

So important to have an expectation that all students have the capacity to learn and contribute to learning.

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

Should I teach problem-, project-, or inquiry-based learning?

Should I teach problem-, project-, or inquiry-based learning? | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

"Lately, there have been a bunch of buzzwords floating around the education world that all seem to mean the same thing. You’ve probably heard them: problem-based learning, project-based learning and inquiry-based learning. Is there a difference? How will you know which one to do in your classroom?"

this is a very insightful article that helps lay out the similarities and differences between project based, inquiry based and problem based learning styles. a good read for anyone looking to try them, and understand the differences between them.
