Why Is Developing Creativity Important?
Research demonstrated that almost all children have the potential to think more creatively, and that creative production can be improved by providing the kinds of learning experiences that foster the use of imagination. Creativity is a dynamic process that involves “a new way of looking at things” and our activities are designed to broaden the way that students see their world and increase their creative potential.
Why should teachers teach creativity?
- 1. Teaching students creativity and creative thinking skills makes learning more engaging and enjoyable and enables students to be enthusiastic about learning.
- 2. Creativity enables the development of higher-level thinking skills, such as critical thinking skills, and executive function skills as well as higher-level cognitive skills that prepares our students for future degrees and careers.
- 3. Creative thinking opportunities reduce underachievement and result in the development of positive social and emotional learning, as well as a passion for learning.
