CREATIVITY – THE KEY TO THE FUTURE:
The changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic significantly increased the demand for the skills of quick adaptation to changing conditions and creative thinking. Also, the progressive
technological development, as a result of which most of the current professions may be automated, makes the so-called soft-skills, especially competencies such as creativity and
innovation. In the face of the climate crisis, it is also important to strengthen these competences. They can help save nature and cultural heritage that go unnoticed by the fast pace of life. Conscious recipients, who approach the phenomena around them in a creative way, are a guarantee of the coherent development of societies.
EXPERIENCE INSTEAD OF TESTING:
Teachers and educators play an important role in the process of acquiring creative learning skills by young people, as well as the educational space conducive to creative forms of
learning. The current situation in education is not conducive to the development of creativity.
CREATIVE TEACHER = CREATIVE STUDENT
In a teaching model that is conducive to the development of creativity, the teacher becomes a guide. There is a change of roles – the teacher does not pass on knowledge because it is
available at your fingertips, thanks to modern technologies. The teacher indicates the possibilities of developing interests and passions, supports and motivates the student to work independently on creative problem-solving.
The possibility of creative teacher-student cooperation depends not only on the knowledge and skills of both parties but also on the environment in which the participants of this
communication are present. Therefore, initiatives that will develop solutions for the development of common spaces in educational institutions and in the immediate vicinity (in the form of social gardens, squares) are important in such a way that they foster the development of cooperation and creativity.
