WORKSHOP ON ‘CREATIVE THINKING’
Creativity is the bringing into being of something which did not exist before, either as a product, a process or a thought. In fact, we are all creative every day because we are constantly changing the ideas which we hold about the world around us.When we change ourselves, the world changes with us, both in the way that the world is affected by our changed actions and in the changed way that we experience the world. In the pursuit of the same, the teachers of K. R. Mangalam, GK-II indulged themselves into various brainstorming activities organized by Creative Thinkers Foundation headed by Mr. Shubharno Chokraborty on ‘Creative Thinking’ on 1 July 2016 .
Creative Thinkers Foundation highlights the need to unleash and maximize the imaginative and creative potential inherent in each child and the workshop enhanced teachers’ confidence and potential to face the odd life situations with ease. It also helped in enhancing their life skills and provided unique experiences in various subjects like science and technology , language and art and craft . It enabled teachers to establish great bondage as coaches, co-learners and nurturers of child’s creativity. It intended to go beyond box-in, jacketed education system and boosted their out-of-box thinking to keep their neural system active.
The teachers were asked to form groups with different activities assigned to each group. They were required to make something creative with the help of a prompt action plan in their minds using the restricted items provided to them.
The teachers indulged themselves in some creative tasks as allotted by the hosts. The aim of this workshop was to bridge this gap with various creativity programs which proved to be successfully accomplished.
