On the importance of connecting innovation with creativity…

The Arts 2

“All innovation begins with creative ideas. Successful implementation of new programs, new product introductions, or new services depends on a person or a team having a good idea-and developing that idea beyond its initial state.”
~Amabile, Conti, Coon, Lazenby, & Herron, 1996, p. 1154.

In 1999, researchers Sternberg and O’Hara provided the pioneering framework of five possible relationships between creativity and intelligence:

  1. Creativity is a type of intelligence

  2. Intelligence is a type of creativity

  3. Creativity and intelligence are overlapping constructs (they have some traits in common)

  4. Creativity and intelligence are part of the same construct (they’re basically the same thing)

  5. Creativity and intelligence are distinct constructs (there is no relationship between them)

Week 3: Thursday Thoughts ~ Quotes from Educators about STEAM Ideas! 

On the importance of epistemological pluralism in students’ representational artifacts of learning…

The Arts 2

 

“Making room for students’ cultural practices in standard education to important dilemmas for educators: How do they balance their students’ freedom and creative expression with academic constraints such as testing?  Researchers (Archer, et al., 2015) are studying the ways that students bring their knowledge, aptitude, skills, and experiences, or capital, into learning settings. For students from groups underrepresented in STEAM, the gap between knowledge and skills is wider than with other groups (Allina 2018). This is a problem that educators are working to solve through culturally relevant teaching and with tools and methods that connect students to where they come from in order to develop more effective ways to support their engagement in STEAM” (Gaskins, 2021, p. 4).

Progress

“Of all the things that can boost emotions, motivation, and perceptions during a workday, the single most important is making progress in meaningful work. And the more frequently people experience that sense of progress, the more likely they are to be creatively productive in the long run. Whether they are trying to solve a major scientific mystery or simply produce a high-quality product or service, everyday progress — even a small win — can make all the difference in how they feel and perform.” ~Teresa M. Amabile and Steven J. Kramer, The progress principle: Using small wins to ignite joy, engagement, and creativity at work.
