Nurturing Creativity

An insightful discussion from the World Innovation Summit for Education in November 2011. Some terrific points made about how we can nurture creativity in our young.

Some take away points: Education must be well-rounded; and students must have a context in which learning is to take place. Many of the panelists and audience mention giving students a context of world problems that need to be solved, and then giving them the freedom to think creatively to come up with solutions.

Some other questions asked: Where do ideas come from? What impact does poverty or wealth have on creativity? How does a person’s lifestyle affect their creativity?
