These days, teacher and parents understand just how important of a role creativity play in children’s education and personal growth. While not all children will grow up to be the next Picasso or Beethoven, children can still achieve their creative potential if their imaginations and sense of exploration in nurtured. Here’s some ways to help your kids take creative risks.
Encouraging creativity in your kids is just as important and necessary as teaching them to count, read and write, or explore science. Creativity helps to stimulate original thinking in children by experiencing the world around them and developing their own unique methods for problem solving. Creativity also focuses on the process of discovery, rather than the final product, and therefore drives exploration, inspection and imagination. Here are some fun ways to nurture your children’s creativity through play.
At Creatubbles we believe in continually improving every aspect of our platform. We’re excited to announce the launch of two new features that will make it your experience with Creatubbles even more simple and convenient.
Congratulations to Mareike Hachemer and Nancy Barile for becoming Top 50 Finalists for the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize. On top of this honorable mention, the two teachers found a lasting friendship in which the two share new ideas and perspectives on teaching.
Elisa Guerra Cruz – Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize Top 50 Finalist – explores the importance of closing the gender gap in education. See why allowing girls to participate in “boy’s” activities helps bolster their confidence in math, sciences and overall life decisions.
We touched base with teacher and renowned artist Michael Bell, who has been commissioned to make portraits for clientele, such as John Gotti and various actors from hit movies and shows, like The Sopranos and Goodfellas. He is active in the Visual Journaling movement and gives workshops all over the United States. We asked him a couple of questions on finding his own authentic voice and the importance of narrative.
It seems like summer just flew by! Even though we enjoyed the hot sunny days, the long nights and the fun activities we did with our kids, families and friends, we’re very much looking forward to what’s in-store for the new school year. We thought we’d take a minute to reflect on the events from the past year to open up new possibilities and give us inspiration for the upcoming one.
For some educators, finding a job during the summer months is a necessary evil that can bring stress and irritation. It can be difficult to find the right job – one that will allow you some flexibility and still pay well – and you’ll probably want to take advantage of the warmer months to exercise and have some fun for yourself.
There are some jobs that combine all those qualities if you know where to look, and some of them can even be done from home. Here are a few of the best.
It’s only natural that Creatubbles, as an international digital platform on which creations are shared, should put on an across-borders workshop. Participants, each sitting in front of his/her computer, in their respective countries, are able create something and share it with their fellow workshop participants through Creatubbles.
