Sylvianne Parent's curator insight, September 6, 2015 1:09 PM

Lorsque les élèves éprouvent de grandes difficultés à l'école, il est primordial de leur enseigner à développer un esprit de croissance personnelle axé sur les efforts et les défis personnels. Le concept de growth mindset est vraiment intéressant pour illustrer aux enfants que l'intelligence et le succès n'est pas fixe mais relié aux efforts aux tentatives et aux réajustements. Voir Carole DWECK l'auteure de ce concept.

What Background Favors Creativity?

When you think of creative people, icons such as William Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison or Steve Jobs may come to mind.  

Take Shakespeare, for example. Of all the fiction writers, his works are more widely performed today than those of any other playwright. He also contributed hundreds of new words to the English language.

What do these creative people have in common? If it is genetic, what types of genes are important? If it is environmental, what background is nurturing?

Apart from the right genes, there are at least three key environmental factors that affect creative accomplishments, reports The Huffington Post.

The right genetics do not require exceptional intelligence or IQ, as revealed in the Terman longitudinal study of intellectually gifted youth. These individuals grew up to be highly successful in education and got good jobs, but were shockingly mediocre in the creativity department.

Rather, a person scores high on tests of creativity if they make a lot of unusual associations, by coming up with atypical uses for familiar objects, such as filing one's nails with a brick, or using it as a mallet, according to The Huffington Post.

These ideas are referred to as divergent thinking. So, you would need genes that influence this line of thought.

What about childhood environment? Living in an affluent home is not an advantage. Many distinguished writers grew up in poverty, such as Dickens and James Joyce. Creativity is enhanced by personal tragedies, such as the premature death of a parent and events that are disruptive of education.

Children often develop an imaginative world as an escape from tragedies. Related stress contributes to psychological problems, which helps explain why creative people are so vulnerable to mental illness.

What about political background? Creative people are often outsiders. They may be members of ethnic or religious minorities, immigrants, or gay. In the U.S., immigrants are more likely to excel in creative pursuits than are people whose families have been here for generations.

Being an outsider forces people to think differently from the mainstream, and that perspective favors creative thinking. For example: Shakespeare's prominent family was caught up in a religious conflict with the reigning monarch and may have gone into hiding to escape the threat of execution.

Finally, it helps to be in the right place at the right time. If you were fortunate enough to live in Renaissance Florence and had aspirations to be a painter or sculptor, the Medici family generously patronized these arts. This attracted successful artists and masters, which had apprentices.  

Shakespeare's talent was nurtured by joining a talented group of actor and writers. The writer probably would not have written his plays had he remained in Stratford-on-Avon.

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 9:10 PM
This article offers a snapshot of where ed tech stands now and where it is likely to go in the next five years, according to 56 education and technology experts from 22 countries.

The overall of the topic is divided at three different moments. first, we encounter the trends in educatioon among which we can find deeper learning, rethinking learning and collaboration, it means that these  aspects have started to be included in every-day lesson, and educators have been concerned about it more often than before, but when could it be done?

On the other side, we find the challenges as Authentic Learning, Professional Development, and Personalized Learning & Teacher’s Role, so finally how are we going to conceive technlogy in our classrooms over the next five years?, Are we going to be able to overcome all of these chhallenges, and if so, which is going to be the rle of the educator in the field?, all question that need to be answered
