Global Creativity Crisis

We are globally demolishing creativity according to Tony Buzan (father of mindmapping). According to him we are teaching uncreativity. We should be teaching 'how to learn' and not 'what to learn'. The nature of how we've taught these skills has driven creativity down. We need to engage our brains and teach in this manner. He posits creativity is the engine of all curricula. As he explains it, creativity is not the domain of what people think of as 'creative-types' but anyone has the potential.

 Creativity is a way of approaching the world. Natural and spontaneous, disciplined, focused and imaginative are words he uses to describe it. The ability to generate ideas from the internal world to the external world is achievable by anyone.

The presentation is long (about 15 minutes) but if you are interested in creativity and learning, it's very interesting.
