Post Title: On Creativity (Part 2)
By Mike, Feed Name: ESC Creativity and Multicultural Communication
Preview: I was watching Gerard Puccio's video on "What is Creativity?" and he raised a very interesting point- the difference between 'Big-C Creativity' and 'Little-c creativity'. Big C creativity would be famous examples of creativity, the works of Shakespeare and Michelangelo, while Little-c creativity deals with the small details in our lives, minor adjustments we may make ....

Post Title: On Transliteracy
By Mike, Feed Name: ESC Creativity and Multicultural Communication
Preview: "Transliteracy is concerned with what it means to be literate in the 21st century. It analyzes the relationship between people and technology, most specifically social networking, but is fluid enough to not be tied to any particular technology. It focuses more on the social uses of technology, whatever that technology may be. This terminology is new and the study of transliteracy is in the early ....

Post Title: On Creativity
By Mike, Feed Name: ESC Creativity and Multicultural Communication
Preview: The "Meat and Potatoes" of the course, I was looking forward to this chapter from the beginning. It's interesting to observe our perceptions of creativity- such as the example mentioned on this week's page, that only artists are creative. I feel that this is a common belief, because through art, one is able to create direct, obvious representations of their creativity. Also, works of ....

Post Title: GeoLiteracy. Is It An Idea Whose Time Has Come?
By daleydose, Feed Name: dayleydosier
Preview: #CMC11 I recently came across an article in National Geographic which speaks to the idea of Geo-Literacy. The premise of Geo Literacy is simple; We are living in a global world, we are inter-connected and we need to learn about each other. Whether it for the purpose of relocating, travel, doing business, gaining more insight into other cultures of just understanding the world more, it is ....

Title: Re: Creativity
Preview: You raise some interesting and extremely valuable ideas here Scott.  It is in those "gaps" or little mental breaks, that quite often, breakthrough thinking occurs.  The mind wanders and the "control" we tend to exercise over our thought processes (ingrained habits of thiking after years of practiced training) slips and allows "out of the norm" thinking to happen.When we expect new ....

Title: Re: Creativity
Preview: Guided brainstorming sounds like an interesting experience Carol. I find that at the end of a day editing online courses on the computer I'll sit there stunned watching myself unable to make another move. As if my brain had enough of being deliberate and freezes. But the watching part seems to almost detach itself and carry on with some pointless task like the running but not moving dreams. ....

Title: Re: Creativity
Preview: The disassociation for greater idea generation in the divergent process is a key to good brainstorming sessions.  Another technique is to work the mind so hard that in the last few minutes, reserves are broken down and free association ideas spring forth.  It is often amazing how these mental stimuli and neural techniques help us to be non judgmental in coming up with some solutions to ....
