5 Steps to Thinking Creatively

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively | Space and Technology | 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. <===

ReMaking Education: Designing Classroom Makerspaces for Transformative Learning | Edutopia.org

ReMaking Education: Designing Classroom Makerspaces for Transformative Learning | Edutopia.org | Space and Technology | Scoop.it

The Maker movement is poised to transform learning in our schools. To counteract educational standards, testing and uniformity, this fresh approach emphasizes creation and creativity -- products and processes born from tinkering, playing, experimenting, expressing, iterating and collaborating -- and exploits new digital tools to make, share and learn across space and time, do-it-yourself (DIY) style.

 

Museums, libraries, community centers and after-school programs have designed physical and virtual "makerspaces" to host communities of supportive peers and mentors invested in creating everything from nail polish design and webpages to jewelry and robots . . . and now, even school curriculum.

Carolyn Eccleston's comment, April 28, 2013 3:36 AM
Arranging resource space furniture for children at the beginning of their learning lives into u shapes or round tables or north, south, east and west learning stations makes good sense. To encourage choice and social exchange of ideas is a reasonable way to go.
