Creativity: What is it? Why does it matter?
Though the word creativity is freely tossed about in educational circles, it is usually thought of as a way to spend a rainy afternoon. Instead, the creative thinking strategies are powerful tools to empower learners, build comprehension, increase content comprehension, and engage students in the learning process. Creative thinking is one of the top qualities companies around the world look for when hiring new employees, yet it is often ignored within our schools. Together, we must move creative thinking out of the shadows and into the mainstream of education.
