Can Creativity Be Taught?

By virtue of our humanity, we are all creative beings.  Creativity is as much a part of us as is our very heart, soul, and mind.  So, creativity itself need not be taught.  What CAN be taught are ways to recognize, develop, and nurture that creativity within us.  Students can learn (or re-learn in many cases) that they are indeed creative.  Students can learn to rediscover the inner child.  Students can learn to think creatively and critically.  So, as teachers we certainly can teach how to explore our innate creativity, how to think creatively, and how to use our imagination to foster an open mind, heart, and spirit.

Meghann Peterson, I have also watched David Kelley's creative confidence TED talk. I found myself nodding my head in agreement quite frequently. As a teacher I'm glad we are finally having conversations about the importance of creativity in the classroom.
