Carlos Fosca's curator insight, May 12, 9:36 AM

Hay que hacer un adecuado balance entre las políticas de favorecer el acceso a educación de excelencia de grupos con desventajas y minorías étnicas y el impacto en la calidad de la investigación y en la propia formación, que ello pueda producir.

Why? Because in order to embrace it, support it, and implement…

Be Normal or Be Creative

Be Normal or Be Creative | after sliced bread... | Scoop.it

In her Scientific American magazine article, creativity researcher Shelley Carson notes “People who are highly creative often have odd thoughts and behaviors—and vice versa.

“Both creativity and eccentricity may be the result of genetic variations that increase cognitive disinhibition — the brain’s failure to filter out extraneous information.”

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, March 8, 2015 3:35 PM
If you have worked in any educational environment from elementary school, higher education, or corporate training, then you have had students who consistently struggle with a topic, skill, or prerequisite knowledge that they must learn in order to be successful. Likewise, many of those same students struggle to motivate themselves to learn the material they are struggling with.
