Out of our minds : learning to be creative by Ken Robinson( Book )

57 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a paradox. As children, most of us think we are highly creative; as adults many of us think we are not. What changes as children grow up? Organizations across the globe are competing in a world that is changing faster than ever. They say they need people who can think creatively, who are flexible and quick to adapt. Too often they say they can't find them. Why not? In this provocative and inspiring book Ken Robinson addresses three questions: [1] Why is it essential to promote creativity? Business leaders, politicians and educators emphasize the vital importance of promoting creativity and innovation. Why does it matter so much? [2] What is the problem? Why do so many people think they are not creative? Young children are buzzing with ideas. What happens as we grow up and go through school to make us think we are not creative? [3] What can be done about it? What is creativity? What can companies, schools and organizations do to develop creativity and innovation in a deliberate and systematic way? In this extensively revised and updated version of his bestselling classic, Out of Our Minds, Ken Robinson offers a groundbreaking approach to understanding creativity in education and in business. He argues that people and organizations everywhere are dealing with problems that originate in schools and universities and that many people leave education with no idea at all of their real creative abilities. Out of Our Minds is a passionate and powerful call for radically different approaches to leadership, teaching and professional development to help us all to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century. -- taken from dust jacket

Lifelong kindergarten : cultivating creativity through projects, passion, peers, and play by Mitchel Resnick( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In kindergartens these days, children spend more time with math worksheets and phonics flashcards than building blocks and finger paint. Kindergarten is becoming more like the rest of school. In Lifelong Kindergarten, learning expert Mitchel Resnick argues for exactly the opposite: the rest of school (even the rest of life) should be more like kindergarten. To thrive in today's fast-changing world, people of all ages must learn to think and act creatively -- and the best way to do that is by focusing more on imagining, creating, playing, sharing, and reflecting, just as children do in traditional kindergartens. Drawing on experiences from more than thirty years at MIT's Media Lab, Resnick discusses new technologies and strategies for engaging young people in creative learning experiences. He tells stories of how children are programming their own games, stories, and inventions (for example, a diary security system, created by a twelve-year-old girl), and collaborating through remixing, crowdsourcing, and large-scale group projects (such as a Halloween-themed game called Night at Dreary Castle, produced by more than twenty kids scattered around the world). By providing young people with opportunities to work on projects, based on their passions, in collaboration with peers, in a playful spirit, we can help them prepare for a world where creative thinking is more important than ever befor

"Ken Robinson argues that organisations everywhere are trying to fix a problem that originates in schools and universities: "It is often said that education and training are the keys to the future. They are, but a key can be turned in two directions. Turn it one way and you lock resources away, even from those they belong to. Turn it the other way and you release resources and give people back to themselves. To realize our true creative potential in our organizations, in our schools and in our communities--we need to think differently about ourselves and to act differently towards each other. We must learn to be creative."--Ken Robinson The updated 3rd edition features a new introduction, modernized case studies, updated demographics and revised sections around technological developments and recent changes to the education system"--

Más allá de su enorme éxito profesional, todos son personas que muestran una extraordinaria pasión por lo que hacen y que han encontrado lo que Ken Robinson denomina su elemento, es decir, el lugar donde la persona hace aquello que realmente quiere hacer y donde es quien siempre ha querido ser. Ken Robinson consigue en este libro transmitir la importancia de encontrar ese punto, motiva al lector a buscarlo y le recuerda que nunca es tarde para alcanzarlo. El elemento es un libro especialmente necesario en unos momentos en los que el éxito parece medirse exclusivamente mediante parámetros económicos, porque nos demuestra que la clave reside en hacer especialmente bien aquello que nos apasiona."--Page 4 of cover
