Think Piece: New Perspectives for the Role of Creativity in Education (free scientific paper)

This think piece is based on the combined insights from several decades of research and practice in the field of creativity, communication of new ideas and educational design. It suggests that we may enter a new and more inclusive golden era in the history of mankind. In order for this to succeed the educational system will need to go beyond simply teaching creative process methods and creative techniques. It needs to systematically integrate holistic creativity curriculum as a fundamental component throughout all levels of education. It needs to define, explore, invent, experiment and disseminate approaches for holistic and systematic development of creative competences and creative confidence so that graduates will gain creativity as a second nature. I co-authored this paper with Patricia Núñez Gómez from Complutense University.

Online Gamified Training for Business Innovation: Examining an Embodied Gamified E-learning Module on Creativity (free scientific paper)

This article examines the use of a novel method of delivery of creativity training: a gamified embodied e-learning module for teaching the creative skills fundamental for practical business innovation. The e-module “Academy for Creativity” is examined as an out-of-class study activity for creativity training using interviews with focus groups of students, questionnaires on a larger group of students and individual interviews with teachers. The results reveal embodied gamified e-learning on creativity as a potential for increasing student motivation and engagement as well as a potential for advancing and increasing focus and student time spent on the deliberate practice of creativity as part of business innovation studies. The results also present recommendations for how to implement embodied gamified e-learning on creativity as a natural part of classes on business innovation.
