The Science (and Practice) of Creativity

The Science (and Practice) of Creativity | Pedagogia Infomacional |
"Creativity isn't about music and art; it is an attitude to life, one that everybody needs," wrote the University of Winchester's Professor Guy Claxton in the lead-up to the 2014 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) dedicated to creativity and education. "It is a composite of habits of mind which include curiosity, skepticism, imagination, determination, craftsmanship, collaboration, and self-evaluation."

Sounds like the perfect skill set for equipping young people to navigate an increasingly complex and unpredictable world. Encouragingly, there's plenty of evidence -- from both research and practice -- that most of the above can be taught in the classroom. In fact, innovation and education experts agree that creativity can fit perfectly into any learning system.

But before it can be incorporated broadly in curriculum, it must first be understood.

Creativity fosters teaching and learning.



Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, March 31, 6:02 PM

Creativity has always been what has set America apart from other nations.  The ability of our population to imagine new solutions to everyday problems and create innovations has kept America as a world leader and given us the economic advantage.  many nations have looked at our education system and wondered how they could nurture this ability in their children.  As a gifted educator, teaching creativity has always been our focus.  Unfortunately, in these days of standardized testing, which lead to standardized curriculum and schools, we are losing our creative advantage.  Creativity is a key for ALL our children.  our children enter school with an active imagination and a natural ability for creative thinking.  We must understand creativity and how we can nurture it in our classrooms and schools.

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | Pedagogia Infomacional |

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?

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