In a recent article from his blog on Edutopia, Joshua Block, Humanities teacher at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, outlines some principles to make creativity a routine.
“Routine” has no negative meaning in Block’s words; instead, there is just the idea that a strategic planning of the occasions to unleash creativity and improvisation makes students feel safe, and ends up in being more effective.
In which moments do we unleash our creativity? Usually, most of us do activities that stimulate the right hemisphere of the brain only in the free time, when we are out of office. The real challenge, Block suggests, is to learn to be creative even during the day in the workplace.
Share Ideas. This should be our motto, to leave our routine with a creative footprint, able to make ideas circulate, for a better and shared growth.
