Enhance Children’s Creativity in School

Hello guys! After I wrote my opinion about creativegeneralist blog last week, now I want to review another inspiring website called creativeoverflow.net. In my opinion, this website is very useful. Why? Beside this website is very informative, creativeoverflow.net delivering many inspiration and lesson in different way, such as via unique articles and tutorials. Many articles wrote in this website and Pak Agus picked one article titled How to Enhance Creativity in School Children. It’s time for me to review this article. Enjoy!

First of all, I will describe creative in my own word. I think that creative is how people can think outside the box and breakthrough, different from others. Creative can also describe as how people begin to think about new innovation that they never thought before. Sometimes when people hear creative, people will also think about arts. But, this website describe that “Being creative is about finding innovative ways to solve problems, generating new ideas and finding ways to make things better to name a few.”

Some research found that enhancing student creativity may offer benefits academically, developmentally, and emotionally. When we was child, teacher is the important role of our (as a student) creativity. They thought us about how to think creative in many ways. In kindergarten, we learned about how to solve problem in a simple game. Our brain trained how to solve problem from we were child. So, in elementary school until college, our brain can solve many problem from easy ones to difficult problem. As a teacher, they have big responsibility to teach us how to become creative and also smart way to solve problem. There are some activities that can enhance children creativity:
1. Word Games
Word games can encourage creative thinking because it allows children to make connections and relationships between different words. Some popular word games are Scrabbles and Bookworm.
2. Visual Thinking Games
This games employ the use of visual thinking because children encourage visualization and the use of imagination—two important aspects of thinking creatively. Show a picture and make the story about that. This games also teach people to look at something from all different angles and perspectives.
3. Drawing Games
This games can help children build on existing concepts, knowledge, and ideas, another key aspect of creativity. When we was child, our parents give us a paper with many dots. If we make line from those point then we will see one picture from those dots.

Everyone was born with their creativity. They have different way to show their creativity. We as young generation should be more creative and innovative that always come up with new ideas. The author of this article is Kelli Cooper. She is a freelance writer who specializes in education topics among others.

When I open this website, only one word that comes in my mind: this website is totally DIFFERENT! This website contains many unique things that can fulfill people desire about creative and out-of-the-box thing.

The blog was categorized based on business, education, health, stories, technology, and leisure.

This blog also provide forums for people that have same interest called Society page. They can discuss or just sharing about their interest and passion with people around the world.

It’s very inspire me to come to those places. That also may become an inspiration vacation for people around the world.

In my opinion, this blog is very informative. The author can presenting the information in interesting way. This blog provide news and article which selected based on topic that make people curious. But, I think the author should be more concern to optimize the design and visualization because with interesting design, people will be more attracted and enjoy read this blog.

Websites also being more accessible on televisions and the ability for users. Many stores provide online shopping. Customers easier to buy product that they want. They can buy online, in-store, shop online while in the store, or buy it online and pick it up at the store. The technology makes customers easier.

In business side, for company, Cullina from IDT 911 tells us that data is crucial thing both in small or large business. There are many cybercrime so cyberinsurance is very important. Now, the business software also needed by employee in the company. It was meant to optimize back office, make accounting easier and keep up with tax rules.

Dan Martin from IFX predict the franchise industry, which has been going strong, will see a big uptick in franchises with very low overhead costs and low start-up costs. In the other side, Den Biederman from Biederman Redevelopment Ventures tells us that public or private partnerships will become trend. Government has spent its funds so badly, at all levels, the private entities provide those services better and price them more wisely.

In digital marketing, especially social media there are Anne Berkowitch from SelectMinds tells about social media for hiring. Many people said they are using social networks to help them recruit candidates for team. Some division in small or large company used that way. Ken Gaebler from Walker Sands Communication also tells us about Proximity-based social networks will allow you to identify like-minded individuals who are near you. Our smart gadgets will thus evolve to become a way to meet new people, taking networking, and other human-to-human interactions.

The focus of marketers in 2012, as involves social media, is going to be reputation reviews for business services and software will become the driver for accelerating adoption, especially for the business buyer. The fact is that business owners are using more online services to grow website traffic, members and sales. A lot more of these growth services will be purchased online via the B-2-B group-buying sites when the reputation of the site and its suppliers shine through. That is Van Jepson from GroupPrice prediction.

So, many things happened in 2012. There are some trends and predictions that happened but predictions are only predictions. Sometimes its right, sometimes its wrong. But overall, the trends and predictions are very interesting. Basically, as a human we should always update and innovate product and adapt it with globalization. Hope that kind of article can inspired many people to always create and innovate new product. Make people think more creative and breakthrough.
