Fostering Creativity #1

The conventional system of schooling is sometimes seen as “stifling” of creativity. The pre-school, kindergarten and early school years are often the only ages where there is an attempt to provide a creativity-friendly, rich, imagination-fostering environment for young children.

Researchers see the importance of fostering creativity because technology is advancing our society at an unprecedented rate. Creative problem solving will be needed to cope with challenges as they arise. Creativity also helps students identify problems where others have failed to do so, in order to discover a solution.
