5 Steps to Thinking Creatively

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively | Mobile Learning & Content | Scoop.it

"Geniuses produce because they think fluently and flexibly," says Michael Michalko in his book "Cracking Creativity."

 

"Fluency of thought means generating quantities of ideas." A key characteristic of genius is immense productivity. Thomas Edison held 1093 patents. Einstein published 248 papers. Darwin wrote 119 papers besides his theory of evolution. Therefore, if you want more creative/innovative thinking in your organization, you must encourage the generation of "quantities of ideas."

 

However, if you stifle creative thinking by sending subtle or not so subtle messages that "we must just spend our time doing things the way we have always done"...because they have worked, you'll never find a better more efficient method. Your innovative risk-taking competitor will! That's how Microsoft climbed to success passing IBM and why they know they have to continue investing mega-millions in R&D.

 

===> You must encourage people to think creatively and take risks. <===

Diane Goodman's curator insight, June 5, 2013 6:56 PM

This infographic is worth a close look. Its value lies in helping teachers plan and design learning outcomes, assessment tasks and learning activities that enable learners to master lower level understanding and move toward higher order thinking and critical enquiry. It maps and explains Bloom's learning levels and learning domains in a way that illustrates the hierarchy and relationships, however each learning level, within each domain, has embedded verbs that are not included here.

"The need to develop critical thinkers has never been as urgent as it is now. In a world that is digitally focused and where there is an outpouring of information surfeit, students need to be equipped with the right tools to live up to the new learning exigencies. Critical thinking as a skill is the mother of all other skills and one that underpins and solidify students overall learning."

Introductory courses are packed with content. Teachers struggle to get through it during class; students struggle to master it outside of class. Too often learning consists of memorizing material that’s used on the exam but not retained long after.
