Perfection kill creativity. It is my duty to convey the role of acceptance of this concept to my students. Teachers needs to interpret and adapt his student's needs and not impose demands to those who are not yet ready. The creative urge is stronger in some and weaker in others but with care and encouragement this impulse can thrive and show the progress in an individual's work and attitude. Understanding the flow of our temperaments will evoke a mature way of thinking and develop the empathy required to have a healthy relationship with others. It is through motivation and effort that we will find the source of our creativity.
Searching for creative impulses can be achieved through a playful approach to any new challenge. Too much vigilance over students can easily halt their intuition and slow down their improvement. The real value of play is not to teach theory, it is to gradually help students in the acquisition of knowledge through practice. We need art because science can only explain nature to us while art can make us experience it ourselves. It is through play that the individual is able to use his own personality, and it is only by being creative that the individual discovers the self. Education is about asking the right questions and it is through learning that we encourage students to embrace their imagination.
Instead of sharing a quote, this week I want to share a video. It is a year in review of some of the most inspiring talks on TED in 2014. Watch it, share it and let me know this: What will be your contribution in 2015?
I encourage you to share your thoughts in the comments below.
