Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

This is a must read for everybody who needs to be creative - that is everybody. Some tips include carving out time, making this non-negotiable, and recognizing that you have to work yourself into your creative zone are only some of the things discussed. Plus you get to watch a video on the topic from John Cleese - come one, JOHN CLEESE! Great read!!

Taking the long way around: circular routes to learning

Taking the long way around: circular routes to learning | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Organisations need to allow a certain amount of wandering around the corridors, through the accumulated knowledge, we need to mix things up a bit, create cross channel communities and be unafraid to cross boundaries. Creativity is a fire that needs fuel: relationships, knowledge, technologies, resources, we have to feed it to feel the heat.

 

We should welcome the curious, encourage adventure and introduce just a little uncertainty into the process of learning. You never know what it will turn up.
