61 Online and Social Media Resources for Motivating People to Create | Brainzooming

61 Online and Social Media Resources for Motivating People to Create | Brainzooming | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

by Mike Brown

"Long plane flights are my most-prized creative times. With the opportunity to be free from the many distractions that drain creative energy, long plane flights always lead to many new ideas. Last Saturday’s flight back from New Jersey and #BigIdeas12 was no exception. I finally had the chance to look at theAdobe “State of Create Study” issued recently. The study polled 5,000 people across the US, UK, Germany, France, and Japan regarding their perspectives on creativity across multiple dimensions of society.

 

"There are enough intriguing insights on creativity in the Adobe “State of Create Study” for multipleBrainzooming blog posts, but the last slide really struck me. The headline read, “Social media plays a minor role, if any, in motivating people to create.” Across the global study, only 11% of respondents said social media plays a “great deal” of a role in their creative motivation.

 

"Huh?

 

"If that’s the case, people around the globe are really missing out on the incredible new opportunities for creative motivation presented by online and social media resources. This disconnect was fodder for generating a list of sixty-one ways you can use online and social media sources for creative motivation. I KNOW there are more than sixty-one ways, but I decided to constrain myself to only ideas jotted down on the plane."

Creativity is defined as the ability to create, but sometimes, we seem to lose that ability all of a sudden. 

Luckily, Jordan-based art director Islam Abudaoud has created a useful infographic that teaches us ways to stay creative. 

Titled ‘29 Ways To Stay Creative’, the infographic illustrates the “creative process and methods to keep a person moving forward and motivated to keep doing more”.

A Creative Curriculum fit for 2013 and Beyond | huntingenglish

A Creative Curriculum fit for 2013 and Beyond | huntingenglish | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it
“A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron.” Horace Mann

 

"Recently I came across a beautifully written ode to creativity written by @RealDavidCameron – see here. Please read it in all of its resplendent glory. The article, appropriate for our austere times, and rather bankrupt political leadership, is not all sweetness and light. Birth weight and poverty are recognized as near intractable factors that inhibit learning, but the driving force of the article resides in the transformative power of education. This was connected to another article by an inspiring school leader, Tom Sherrington – the @headguruteacher – with this article on creativity here: Teaching for Creativity and Innovation. Now, let me admit, when I sometimes hear the term ‘creativity’ used regarding education I wince slightly. ‘Passion’ and ‘creativity’ have become easy labels used across public and private sectors, becoming appropriated by advertisers, regardless of whether those qualities are exhibited or not, like some empty corporate mantra. When people laud Sir Ken Robinson I cannot but agree with his inspired speeches, but without action those words ring hollow. What leaders like Tom Sherrington and people like David Cameron do is put meat onto the bones of the creativity mantra in a real and valuable. They shine a light on creativity in practice and thereby encourage us to bask in the glow and feed the flame,"

Jim Lerman's insight:

The above comment, only one paragraph in quite a lengthy meditation on the necessity for creativity and passion in education, comes from "A Subject Leader of English in a large, successful state school in York" [England], who evidently desires to write anonymously.

 

In any event, huntingenglish has quite a bit to say on his/her own behalf and also peppers the piece with abundant links to additional writings by others as well as schools/programs that s/he considers exemplary.

 

From the opinions expressed, it seems to me that the educational landscape in the UK resembles that of the US in a great many respects...certainly I find much to agree with concerning personal reflections about the current state of educational affairs.

 

Huntingenglish has a lot to say and, IMO, says it very well. This is quite a stimulating read and I will be returning to this blog for more.

Infographics, when used correctly, appropriately, are powerful tools for conveying a lot of pertinent information plus they support visual learning and thinking.  I curate a Scoopit on Infographics...


Beth Dichter's insight:

Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.

Extreme Creative Ideas – 50 Lessons to Improve Creativity Dramatically | Brainzooming

Extreme Creative Ideas – 50 Lessons to Improve Creativity Dramatically | Brainzooming | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

by Mike Brown

 

"Extreme creative ideas are fascinating, and I always wonder about the processes people who consistently display extreme creativity use to come up with what they do. This fascination with extreme creative ideas prompted a series of “Extreme Creativity” Brainzooming blog posts starting back in 2010 to identify some of the lessons we can learn from these folks for how to dramatically improve creativity.

 

"We now have 50 extreme creative ideas sprinkled across 10 articles on the Brainzooming blog. You will notice a definite reality TV theme to these extreme creativity sources. Included in these 10 articles with extreme creative ideas are also some focusing specifically on where extreme creativity can fits as a strategy and drawing your team into the possibilities."

Jim Lerman's insight:

A collection of 50 ideas in 10 articles from places most people would never think of as sources for extreme creativity, such as a bakery, diners, bars, and some places where you would, such at the TED conference and Lady Gaga.

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking

Empathy In Creativity and Design Thinking | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

RSA Animate recently released a video called 'The Power of Outrospection'. The video intrigued me and this post has helped me pull together some of my thoughts about the links between empathy and creativity.
The post explores empathy in a variety of fields, including design, human services, and the creative fields, and the video is also embedded in the post. Take the opportunity to read the post, watch the video, and ponder how empathy allows us to be creative as we look for new solutions for whatever issues we face.
