Creativity and innovation -nurturing lab- the tools ,techniques and practices we should have in it ?
what is your tools, technique or practice to advice the lab ?
The question interests me as it is some what we have been researching for last 2 years.
Debra Sharon Ferdinand-James and Jermaine Dunn , already suggested some of the good ideas.
to me if i have to think about how to enhance the critical thinking in kids inschool-?
raises following questions:
Age of subjects in class
Interest of the subjects in a particular area.
The creativity nurturing behaviour of the teacher in class.
The Training of the teachers.
The environment of the class.
The School's policy towards Creativity fostering.
The time given to individual for thinking to do a task/ answer a question.
Appropriate creative potential scale to measure creativity from time to time again.
once we throughly prepare a detailed requirement based on above things , it becomes easier to enhance creativity and critical thinking .
A teacher should always try to sharpen the skills of the students instead of just focusing on the text book. It needs a variety of plans and activities which should be designed according to the mental level of the students. Sometimes we need different activity for different students of the same class.
The main objective behind it remains the same; improvement of the skills in students. The best things for it are visual learning and short creative assignments.
The teachers must use different platforms and media to open their minds and allow they to feel secure in that fact that there are no right or wrong answers - that is the process of learning.
To provide learners with complete nourishing learning diet, part of the meal should be assigned for problem solving and critical thinking,and usually this is only possible, when they are involved in tasks that require the skill: it could be theoretical,e.g mathematics ,geometry or a critique, .... or practical, simple practical, such as the arrangements in the classroom, the arrangement and preparation for an event or big academic projects.
field trips that can be assigned to take these kids out and let them see for themselves. For example a field trip to the museum of arts can show these kids that painters and artists didn't paint the normal portraits nor did they have to. Anything can be art depending on how you look at it. Teacher plays a role in how these kids learn to perceive art. Critical thinking is involved as well.
Training the teachers - A Key Issue in the areas.
laughter as a technique to enhance creativity .
Innovative and creative discussions, that builds on innovative culture and atmosphere.
The tools is any related software or conventionally help to build up your creativity, technique or practice is the understanding process of creativity and lastly is to execute your creativity into something innovative. All of this discipline might be the -nurturing lab- toward we should have in it.
Any innovation should be oriented:
1. To solve any problem for which potential demand exists or may exist.
2. Or an innovation that can perform such a new function, which may be in demand.
Therefore, such a type of laboratory should have the skills and tools to identify the main problems and the algorithm to solve them, or to transform these problems into a benefit in the first case.
In the second case, possess or train the abilities ahead of existing needs and find non-existent but very promising functions.
Relatively speaking, the atmosphere in such a laboratory should be similar to the soil where the seeds, soil and micro climate are chosen specifically, while it is so flexible that it could be suitable for any plants.
I very much wish to create such a school and laboratory, I am the author of many inventions, the authors of the book “Advantage Management” in Georgian, but for this I do not have other necessary resources.
