La créativité, pont entre les études de sciences et les humanités ?

The ConversationDans une célèbre conférence donnée en 1959, le romancier et chimiste C.P.

The Greatest Enemy of Creativity in Schools Isn’t Testing. It’s Time.

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. The Greatest Enemy of Creativity in Schools Isn’t Testing. It’s Time.
Stephen Noonoo, EdSurge, 2018/12/19
After having just written a draft article on experience and creativity saying such uplifting things as "It is the history, process and provenance of the creation that gives it meaning, relevance, and ultimately, truth" it is a disappointment to read this item on the same topic from EdSurge that depicts "assessment as the key to everyday creativity in the classroom” and that " there will be the layer of assessment that relates directly to the content." Be as creative as you want, the message seems to be, but don't create the think wrong. More...

How to Be Creative

How to Be Creative
Nice article that should probably have been titled "How to be good at anything." The author's main point is that "everybody has their own private Mount Everest they were put on this earth to climb," and that the difference between a worthwhile life and the other lies in the decision to climb it (my 'Everest' is stated at the bottom of my home page).

Creativity is a human quality that exists in every single one of us

The ConversationWhen you think about creativity, it might be highly creative people like Mozart, da Vinci or Einstein who spring to mind. They were all considered to be “geniuses” for their somewhat unique talents that led to global innovation in their fields. Their type of creativity is what’s known as “Big C creativity” (or historical) and is not very common in everyday life. Not all of us can create works of art or music or scientific theories that are new to the world. More...
