12 Most Striking Tendencies of Creative People | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Kim Phillips shares the 12 Most Striking Tendencies of Creative People.

 

Ever wonder what makes those wacky, creative types tick? How is it that some people seem to come up with all kinds of interesting, original work while the rest of us trudge along in our daily routines?

 

Creative people are different because they operate a little differently.

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Too often, schools bring only tepid energy to the blending of traditional and online learning, Charles Mojkowski says.

 

That sounds promising, but all of that capability must be matched by a worthy partner. And educators have been far from worthy. To the blend, they add a stale array of timeworn and tepid ingredients:

 

• A 20th-century school organizational structure;

• A fixation on providing the same learning outcomes for every student;

“Educators are failing to exploit the new and emerging technologies in ways that will give student learning opportunities the jolt they need.”
• A focus on external motivational techniques;

• A rigid curricular scope and sequence for all students;

• An asphyxiating and narrow assessment system; and

• A separation of in-school from out-of-school learning.

KC Beck's curator insight, October 3, 2013 12:20 PM

Creativity is an esential part of the blended learning. It is important to highlight the noncognitive skills that students possess. It also important to acknowledge that not all students learn the same. Competency-based education allows non-traditional learnings to compete with traditional learners.

How Emotional Connections Can Trigger Creativity and Learning

How Emotional Connections Can Trigger Creativity and Learning | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Scientists are always uncovering new ways into how people learn best, and some of the most recent neuroscience research has shown connections between basic survival functions, social and emotional reactions to the world, and creative impulses.

 

Students’ social and emotional reactions to learning are imperative to feeling motivated to learn and to their ability to creatively solve problems, according to Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, who wrote Musings on the Neurobiological and Evolutionary Origins of Creativity via a Developmental Analysis of One Child’s Poetry [PDF]. Her research tries to understand why emotions are so important to learning by examining what happens to brain functions.

 

“Neuroimaging experiments show us that we use the very same neural systems to feel our bodies as to feel our relationships, our moral judgments, and our creative inspiration,” said Immordino-Yang, a professor at USC’s Rossier School of Education and an expert on the neuroscience of learning and creativity.

 

Her whose work focuses on how neuroscience can help teachers understand the ways students learn best, and to that end, she’s created a free online curriculum for teachers.

Allowing kids the space for the interplay between the emotional and cognitive spaces will benefit the long-term learner.

We do need to encourage creativity in our students. They learn so much more when they handle the content to do something with it.
