Myths of Creativity

Let’s look at some of the myths of creativity!

We may be easily controlled by others’ ideology. Also, cognitive differences in creativity affect our behaviors. Let’s discuss these concepts here. Do share your opinions with us and your fellow learners.

The Most Creative Video Exercise!

What are your criteria for recognizing something of creativity? Have you ever discussed your set of criteria with others? Could there be some common criteria that everyone agrees on?

Before we introduce the criteria of creativity, we want to listen to your own set of criteria first. In this exercise, we have chosen some videos in which some learners introduce themselves. Those videos might be in different forms, but the main idea is the same: they are trying to introduce themselves in a creative way.

By clicking into Padlet, you can check all the videos out. While watching those videos, you might have a preference for specific introduction videos and come up with your own criteria for creativity.

Don’t let the inspiration slip away! Make comments and share your thoughts with other learners in the comments on this step. Give us TWO to THREE reasons why you think a video is creative. Please be specific in your answer and try to avoid using general words like’ creative’, ‘cool’, ‘fantastic’, ‘amazing’, ‘good’, and so on.

The purpose of this exercise is to understanding and discuss the different criteria used by our learners to judge a creative object. Feel free to leave a comment if you agree/disagree with them. Tell them why you agree/disagree.
