Can You Measure an Education? Can You Define Life’s Meaning? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
It's time to step back and think deeply about the purpose of education.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Fine article from Dr. Peter Grey that ask us to think about what education is truly about and rethink the current trend toward teaching for testing success. Wasn't sure if this didn't better fit under my austerity topic rather than education..

Today our schools are "obsessed with measurement." We take many hours of each school year testing our students. This post questions the value of this "obsession" noting that "children have become pawns in contests that pit parent against parent, teacher against teacher, school against school, and nation against nation in the struggle to see who can squeeze the highest test scores out of their kids."

It explores the questions "What is education? What is its purpose" and "Is it quantifiable?" by looking at the roots of education and how education has changed. If you want some food for thought on these issues this is a great post to read.

The Four P’s of Creativity: Products, People, Processes & Press

The Four P’s of Creativity: Products, People, Processes & Press | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Many creativity research programs are narrowly focused on one aspect of creativity to the exclusion of others; an integrative focus will help move the field forward.

This post asks a variety of questions about creativity (quoting from post below):

* What is (a) creative (product)?
* How is creativity achieved (the process)?

* Who is creative/what makes someone crative (the person)?

* What conditions (historically/everyday) are conducive to creativity (the press)?

These questions are then explored, with information form a variety of other sources included.

Recent articles in the news have suggested that creativity in childen is decreasing. This post provides a look at this issue from perspectives that may be new to you as well as the author's perspective on "what factors are necessary for Genius."
