Creativity and Education
It is easy to think that creativity and education might not have much in common, but they do! Over the years, various studies that focused on the positive impact creativity has on education came to support this view.
One of the greatest minds of our time, Albert Einstein, said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Let us not forget that nurturing children’s creativity and imagination significantly helps with their development. Although our children have the luxury of modern technology, we mustn’t forget to encourage their aspirations as these are an essential part of their growth.
By adopting this strategy, lessons conducted by our teachers not only provide supplementary education but aim to unravel and tap on the imagination of each child. Different techniques are applied for different age groups, and use an array of online resources ensures sessions are interesting and fun.
In the current digital age, children must develop open, agile minds to find bold and new solutions to any problems presented to them. By nurturing and cultivating their imagination and creativity from a young age, you are doing just that.
As parents, we have a significant role to play in this process. With the winter weather and rainy days, it could not be a better time to do it. Below we have shortlisted a few ideas and activities you could try. Have fun!
