Weekend Ed. Quote ~December 16

This week’s Ed. Quote is in honor of my creative daughter, on her birthday!

“Electricity is not only present in a magnificent thunderstorm
and dazzling lightning, but also in a lamp; so also, creativity
exists not only where it creates great historical works,
but also everywhere human imagination combines, changes,
and creates anything new.”
~Lev Vygotsky, 1930/1967, cited in Smolucha, 1992, p. 54
