How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It)

How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It) | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

1.       Teach creative problem solving over rote memorization. How to reach an answer is far more important than making the right choice on a standardized test and then forgetting the concept the next day.

2.       Teach kids to challenge assumptions instead of accepting things “as is.” Success is no longer about following an operating manual.  It is about imagining the possibilities and real-time innovation.

3.       Teach that mistakes are not evil, and should not be feared.Make sure kids learn that mistakes aren’t fatal – they’re simply the portals of discovery.

4.       Drive diversity of thought over conformity. World progress occurs by challenging conventional wisdom and approaching problems with fresh perspective.  Following the herd is a surefire path to mediocrity.

5.       Forster imagination and curiosity. No longer optional, creativity has become the currency of success for us all.  This applies to CEO’s and soccer-moms.  Musicians and military leaders.  Engineers and educators.

Struggling Teens often are those kids who cannot/will-not give up their creativity.  Those are not broken kids needing serious treatment, but confused kids trying to find their way and making poor decisions.  There are schools working on this creativity gap, and should be a model for mainstream kids. -Lon

Celebrate diversity, be open, share, listen and learn...

Dr. Pat McGuire's curator insight, October 20, 2014 11:41 AM

When my children were small we spent a great deal of time being creative and playing the "what if" game to test out theories. That is not seen with children in my practice much anymore.  They are stuck in overly compartmentalized learning and playing.  Few of them know what to do if told to go outside.

 

We need to bring curiosity and creativity back into the forefront of child development and learning.  I see the loss of this as being as devastating as when children were told "Do it because I said so and don't ask questions."

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health

Warning: Good Grades May Harm Student Health | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it
by Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. This article makes the case that good grades matter far less in school than developing internal strengths like critical thinking, compassion, and curiosity.

 

Even for children who naturally perform well on academic tests, a good grade is only one measurement of success.

 

===> A few things that school testing cannot measure include: <===

 

- Open-Mindedness

- Effort

- Social & Emotional Intelligence

- Critical Thinking

- Initiative

- Creativity

- Collaboration

- Curiosity

- Respect

- Kindness

- Capacity to love

- Honesty

- Compassion

 

Internal strengths, like those listed above, are far more important to a life of success and well-being than whether a child earns an “A” on an Algebra exam or are accepted to a top-rated university. In fact, many tests only measure a student’s ability to produce a correctly memorized answer.

Something teachers have known for a while and are continually fighting against in media perceptions. There are more I portent things than grades.

BookChook's curator insight, January 21, 2013 5:36 PM

Such a dilemma for parents, kids and teachers who can see the big picture but are locked into a testing regime.

Hi Tammy, It is NOT FUNNY AT ALL to see that YOU removed my opinion in that Curation! That is felt as Censorship for me, sorry and I don't like Censorship at ALL!!! I suggest to YOU to delete that post and to curate it from original address or YOU keep it and YOU bring in again my opinion in the text! That is Curation, not only copy&paste! Curation is made for leaving the opinion of a curator, otherwise it would be aggregation, OK ;) Have a great day :)
