How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It)

How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It) | Education | Scoop.it
Ever since the 1950s, children have undergone a test for tracking their creativity, in similar fashion to the IQ test. Professor E. Paul Torrance developed the series of tasks, which are administered by a psychologist, to a subject to measure the person’s ability to produce something original and useful. No [...]

Struggling Teens often are those kids who cannot/will-not give up their creativity.  Those are not broken kids needing serious treatment, but confused kids trying to find their way and making poor decisions.  There are schools working on this creativity gap, and should be a model for mainstream kids. -Lon

Dr. Pat McGuire's curator insight, October 20, 2014 11:41 AM

When my children were small we spent a great deal of time being creative and playing the "what if" game to test out theories. That is not seen with children in my practice much anymore.  They are stuck in overly compartmentalized learning and playing.  Few of them know what to do if told to go outside.

 

We need to bring curiosity and creativity back into the forefront of child development and learning.  I see the loss of this as being as devastating as when children were told "Do it because I said so and don't ask questions."

8 Characteristics of the Innovative Leader

8 Characteristics of the Innovative Leader | Education | Scoop.it
Ultimately, an innovative leader should try to create new ideas, but it is more important that they create a culture of innovation. We often talk about empowering people and then getting out of their way, but what is often missed in the process is removing some of those barriers that they will encounter along the way. This why it is so important to spend time in the classrooms, see what teaching and learning looks like, and then help to create a better tomorrow for our students and educators. Again though, at the heart of innovation is people, not stuff. If we always keep that at the forefront of our work, we are more likely to create an innovative culture.

So You're Already A Connected Educator... Now What?

So You're Already A Connected Educator... Now What? | Education | Scoop.it
It’s a time that even the federal government recognizes as an opportunity for teachers, principals, and administrators to meet and learn from others around the nation and even the world. Generally speaking, most folks are choosing to connect via some form of social media, notably Twitter. Social media has revolutionized what it means to be an educator and, unfortunately, it often carries a negative connotation such as unprofessional and immature adults who use social media as a means to berate or belittle their students or colleagues.That’s not what it means to be a connected educator. However, once folks sign up for class Twitter pages or create Google+ profiles and begin finding others with whom they can share ideas, the question looms: now what? Maybe more importantly, so what? Here are 5 things to focus on once you’ve taken the plunge and decided to become a Connected Educator:

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Education | Scoop.it
“Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).”I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.Learn more:- http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching/?tag=Howard-GARDNER

Terry Elliott's curator insight, August 16, 2014 7:26 AM

The image above amounts to a template for curating a digital space:

 

1. Find something timeless to curate.

2. Fit it into a pattern that makes sense.

3. Find a larger context for why this matters.

4. Share widely.

 

I think this fits into Harold Jarche’s simpler seek-sense-share framework.

 

Why does this matter?  If curation is all that Tufte and Bhatt say it is, then why aren’t scaffolds like these being used more often for training and in learning systems?  I am using the curation tool Scoop.it to do curation with my freshman comp students.  They use Scoop.it as their introductory platform  for beginning to acquire the skills  Tufte enumerates above that are part of the academic and business spaces they will eventually live in.  I am hoping they will demonstrate why it curation matters as they seek-sense-share their way to long and short form ‘texts’ that they will be writing all semester. That will include essays, tweets, G+ community posts, blog posts, research papers, emails, plusses, favs, instagrams, zeegas, slideshares, pictures, and a massive mobile presence from their own digital spaces.  Wish me luck.

"A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it."


Creo que esta definición zanja la discusión sobre si un "Content Curator" es una adaptación moderna al "Documentalista" de los medios tradicionales.

Gardner exquisitely and substantially cuts to pieces the concept of 'learning styles'. He describes teaching students whilst taking into account their learning styles as "without evidence' and 'not coherent'.

He also makes three suggestions to teachers. I'll let you read the article to find out.
