Pedagog expert in creativity
"The children owe learn to think in a critical way, ethics and creative".
The creativity learns or is born with her?
The creativity is a field recent at the level of investigation theoretical. And is an also interdisciplinaryfield. The word “creativity” is polysemic. For me, create is generate new, more and best ideas . That is, ideas with value. And then these ideas are which can be applied in several fields through different languages. For me is very important understand the creativity as a skills. All the human beings the have in potency. And the can develop. Not there is a creative person and another not creative. There are levels of development of this skills.
The educational system not favors the development of the creative ability. And for the way as structure the learning processes and of education many times what see is rather an embotamiento of that skills.
If at some point think that someone not is creative and that have to teach him to be it, already is a major error. The creative ability not teaches. What can do is create the conditions so that she takes place. Stimulate it so that goes out. For example, create an ambient that stimulates these responses new. If in the school our questions just ask for a response and this response is the correct and only one, if the train so that are thus, not you are doing no favor to the development of your skills of think creatively.
Have to change our questions, the way of ask. Search do questions that favor, that opens the range of one search possibilities of response. Without fear to make mistakes. Who never makes mistakes in the life? The human being makes mistakes per se, only of be humanely in the world already are making mistakes. The first question is break with that fear. Additionally is important consider that the processes also owe be creatives. That leaves constituting, that every creature can do many essays of be, that not stays with one.
Have to have an ambient that favors the creativity. If the ambient always is the repetition of the same thing, the roles, the paths, the times, the ways of do… If only repeat, how want that develops the creative ability? And in the classroom, the same thing. If in the classroom, for example, are all the children and the girls sentaditos watching for a person, that is the teacher, the teacher. And just watch there, listen that speech, and have to return that speech when the examinations. How want develop the creative ability there? These children and these girls have to be watching to other sides also as well as watch at the top of the children, of what is in front, have to watch between yes. The classroom needs be an ambient polyphonic.
If deal the classroom as a community of investigation, all go to be looking for responses, posing new questions, investigating, questioning the truths that have as dogmas, questioning the stereotypes, not giving up to the banal and fast responses. Other things also important so that that happens is that the teacher and the teacher understand that is only a question of apply a technique. The creative ability is necessary to stimulate it for life.
A profaith or a profaith that wants do in your classroom a more creative ambient, has to consider this: be changing your ambient, not leave it always identical. If not, not is way of that stimulates nothing. Go changing little things and see what generate these small changes. And have in the ambient, in the walls or in the objects, things retadoras. And not give the responses. The creative thinking entails open. That is, search all the perspectives possible, but at some point also converge for arrive to a response. And once arrived there, open again for open many possibilities, leave that emerge these possibilities, for later specify again. That fits in mathematics, in sciences, in art, in music, in philosophy…

- What paper has the philosophy in the education?
The creatures are naive philosophers. That not go to be there only attached to the cliches, to the stereotyped and superficial ideas. One of the things that the philosophy goes to help to give is exactly a method so that the children and the girls can, from that naivety that have, from that freshness, from that not slavery of thought, from that opening of mind, arrive to more. Arrive, for example, developing the side of the critical thought, that is very important, not? Think creatively is think with criterion, is reason, is structure your arguments, is structure the thoughts, is know listen also the addresses of the rest of them, want understand what is beyond the first semblance.
