Models of Creativity. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Robinson (2011) noted that “When people say to me that they are not creative, I assume that they haven’t yet learnt what is
involved” (p. 1). Do you find it interesting to consider that creativity can be learned? Or conversely, that it can be unlearned? In this discussion, you will apply your
knowledge of creativity and the strategies needed to encourage it by reflecting on a personal experience in which your creativity was either stifled or enhanced. Please
review this week’s Instructor Guidance for specific assistance on excelling in this discussion.
Initial Post: Read the NACCCE report, All Our Futures: Creativity, Culture and Education, focusing specifically on the Creative and Cultural Education (pp. 54-60) and
Teaching and Learning (pp. 100-123) section. As you read through this work, describe some of the specific strategies NACCCE recommends for facilitating creativity skills.
Make a list of these strategies for future reference. Once you have a clear picture of the types of educational strategies Robinson believes supports creativity, view
the When there is a Correct Answer video. This is a short two-minute summary of Dr. Segev’s research on creative drawing with children.
Based on the results of Dr. Segev’s research, describe a situation during your life in which your creativity was either inhibited due to an understanding that whatever you
were creating needed to be completed a “correct” way, or encouraged because you were not given such stringent design parameters. Write about this incident in a
narrative, storytelling way. Within your story, make a connection to at least two of the NACCCE strategies you listed. Consider how these were either supported or not
supported within the scenario you described of the decisions the teacher (or teachers) made regarding the experience. Once you complete your story, post it in the
discussion forum. Feel free to be creative with this story. For example, you may want to try Storybird, which is a digital storytelling platform (free accounts are available
to students and teachers). If you use a web-based technology to create your story, be sure to post a link to it in your post.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. In your responses, consider asking questions about their posts to encourage further conversation.
Read (or experience) the stories presented by the students in the class and identify at least two stories that resonate with your own experiences. Offer some words of
commiseration and provide some “words of wisdom” to encourage future creative endeavors. As with previous discussions, though two replies is the basic expectation,
for deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses to any comments or questions others have given to you. This will further the conversation
and provide you with opportunities to demonstrate your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences with this topic.
