Post Title: Creativity in Learning & Life
By Richele Young, Feed Name: Creativity & Multicultural Communication
Preview: This week was all about creativity. I watched most of the youtube videos from the Buffalo State website but I'll admit I'm a little behind this week / last week. I thought I'd write a quick blog just after watching the videos as a reflection of what I thought was interesting and why. Yeah, another boring reflection... but in one of the videos about creative thinking there was one ....

Title: "The Principal of Change"...
Preview: Hi All,I'm a lurker in this course and have been reading all your blog posts. I thoroughly enjoyed this post on "The Principal of Change," especially The Cup Song.

Title: Re: Creativity Neuron
Preview: Finally read the source article on the creativity neuron and the science is beyond me. Not to the point of striking me speechless though. While I think creativity can be "taught" as in certain states of mind can be induced through deliberate actions, like standing things on their metaphorical head or imagining the philosophical limitations of being a newt, I think the state of creativity ....

Title: Re: How can I show the best of myself?
Preview: Wearing sunglasses indoors affects my mood. I misplaced my glasses and tried work at the computer wearing sunglasses. When I put them on, my mood slowing grew sadder. When I took them off, my mood got brighter. I decided to just sit there putting them on and taking them off and got consistent results so now I only wear sunglasses outside if it's really bright out and in the car. I ....
