Last week, we shared a post from Creating Passionate Users related to the application of learning theories. Another of their great posts – entitled Creativity on speed – suggests that breakthrough creativity is inspired by going really fast. They provide a few cool techniques that professors and teach will find really useful in classroom environments when time on task is major constraint. Students who learn to do this will be great at bringing creativity to their next life assignment, too!
A few of Kathy Sierra and Dan Russell’s suggestions include hosting “ad lib jams” and “creativity deathmatches” (think slam poetry or battle of the bands).
If you try one these activities, we at DaVinci would love to hear about the experience and the results! So, have you?
