The learning process is an endless cycle—not only individually, but throughout society and human endeavours. The great thinkers and inventors of the past have shown it already. Sir Isaac Newton said it best: If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

"The student’s eyes drift to the classroom window and the teacher’s voice fades from consciousness.

The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem. Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience makes clear that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning."

Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's insight:

Και οι 15 λόγοι συνοψίζονται στο απόσπασμα από την Αναφορά στον Γκρέκο του Νίκου Καζαντζάκη:

 

Μια μέρα, ήταν άνοιξη, χαρά Θεού, τα παράθυρα ήταν ανοιχτά κι έμπαινε η μυρωδιά από μια ανθισμένη μανταρινιά στο αντικρινό σπίτι∙ το μυαλό μας είχε γίνει κι αυτό ανθισμένη μανταρινιά και δεν μπορούσαμε πια ν' ακούμε για οξείες και περισπωμένες. Κι ίσια ίσια ένα πουλί είχε καθίσει στο πλατάνι της αυλής του σκολειού και κελαηδούσε. Τότε πια ένας μαθητής, χλωμός, κοκκινομάλης, που 'χε έρθει εφέτο από το χωριό, Νικολιό τον έλεγαν, δεν βάσταξε, σήκωσε το δάχτυλο:

- Σώπα, δάσκαλε, φώναξε∙ σώπα, δάσκαλε, ν' ακούσουμε το πουλί!..."

The Science (and Practice) of Creativity

The Science (and Practice) of Creativity | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
"Creativity isn't about music and art; it is an attitude to life, one that everybody needs," wrote the University of Winchester's Professor Guy Claxton in the lead-up to the 2014 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) dedicated to creativity and education. "It is a composite of habits of mind which include curiosity, skepticism, imagination, determination, craftsmanship, collaboration, and self-evaluation."

Sounds like the perfect skill set for equipping young people to navigate an increasingly complex and unpredictable world. Encouragingly, there's plenty of evidence -- from both research and practice -- that most of the above can be taught in the classroom. In fact, innovation and education experts agree that creativity can fit perfectly into any learning system.

But before it can be incorporated broadly in curriculum, it must first be understood.

Creativity fosters teaching and learning.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, March 31, 2015 6:02 PM

Creativity has always been what has set America apart from other nations.  The ability of our population to imagine new solutions to everyday problems and create innovations has kept America as a world leader and given us the economic advantage.  many nations have looked at our education system and wondered how they could nurture this ability in their children.  As a gifted educator, teaching creativity has always been our focus.  Unfortunately, in these days of standardized testing, which lead to standardized curriculum and schools, we are losing our creative advantage.  Creativity is a key for ALL our children.  our children enter school with an active imagination and a natural ability for creative thinking.  We must understand creativity and how we can nurture it in our classrooms and schools.
