Creativity can be defined as having the ability to take new imaginative ideas and turning it into reality.
When the natural love of curiosity is not allowed to blossom, we lose when it comes to potential talent and entrepreneurship.
Research was conducted to test the creativity in children over a period of twenty years. The results showed the proportion of people who scored at the genius level of creativity:
Amongst 5-year-olds: 98%
Amongst 10-year-olds: 30%
Amongst 15-year-olds: 12%
The same tests were given to 280,000 adults who averaged 31-years-old. Their creativity levels were down to 2%.
Most of our public schools still run on an industrial model - like a factory, where children are put into boxes according to age and ability.
This process of schooling follows the framework of historical education processes and procedures, such as standardized tests, and learning from a one-size-fits-all curriculum. It is closing the doors on passion, imagination, discovery, and problem-solving, leaving little room for creativity.
In 2015, The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) ended federal interference in State standards. ESSA was supposed to unleash a "flood of innovation" in states and districts across the country.
However, it is hard to measure creativity and innovation. Only when we
will we set children up to thrive and change the world.
When we remove critical parts of a curriculum that lead to creativity - such as free play, music, art, recess, and gym - we can quickly squash a child's passion.
As parents and teachers, it is our place to encourage creativity. Our job is to lead and guide by example, by letting our kids discover, embrace, and change their world. We should not step in too much or take over and interrupt the love of learning.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
