Great Article: Ideas for Nurturing Creativity

I found this article entitled “Be a Big Kid! Kids for Nurturing Creativity.”  One of the sources listed in the article is Gary Gute, who I had the pleasure of listening to speak at the conference this weekend. This is a great “quick and dirty” article that summarizes creativity and how parents and teachers can nurture it, without being to academic that it looses people.

This would make a great advocacy piece!

My favorite quote from this article? See right above- “Anyone who is successful is creative in some way”…

Like the topic of Creativity? We are running our AOE class “Creativity in Crisis” again in February! Hope to see you there.

  • It is amazing how ban on computer games and TV spurs creativity, even if it is aimed at lifting the ban :-)

    Great find!
