Transcript – November 19, 2015: Creativity

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

8:51 PM michaelkinney A2) Yes! But sadly there’s no accounting for taste.😉 #Lrnchat
8:51 PM Quinnovator True that #lrnchat https://t.co/xFi6aPyqXn
8:51 PM lesliefarooq A2: Yes, b/c I create (blogs, vlogs, graphics, lessons), b/c I connect old ideas to new needs, & learn by jumping in with both feet #lrnchat
8:51 PM write2tg A2) Funny how we limit creativity as illogical, artsy, impractical, contextual. Creativity is independent of all of that. #lrnchat

8:54 PM JeremyDBond A2) I am creative when “forced” to be so, like coming up with a bedtime story on the spot. I now realize #creativity needs a push. #lrnchat

8:55 PM lrnchat Q3) Do you think that creativity is inherent or is it something that must be nurtured and learned? #lrnchat
8:55 PM carlakarijolich @Dave_Ferguson I also think of wit being tied to creativity. It takes a creative mind to make good puns or a clever turn of phrase. #lrnchat
8:55 PM Quinnovator @JeremyDBond recently tweeted a study that suggested creativity needs ‘grit’ to create a pearl #lrnchat
8:55 PM eLearninCyclops @SimonBlairTrain So true #lrnchat
8:55 PM Elham_ab 2) to some extent yes but have started to think lately that it needs practice to stay creative #lrnchat
8:55 PM ryantracey @heikan2003 What’s in the Thanksgiving blend? We don’t get that here. #lrnchat

8:57 PM SimonBlairTrain @Quinnovator That’s the struggle, isn’t it? One can too easily follow it down the rabbit hole. #Lrnchat
8:57 PM heikan2003 A3) I think a lot of people want to think it is inherent. Whatever your level though, it can be nurtured. #lrnchat

8:59 PM heikan2003 A3) I have to keep stretching my creativity. The key is to leave out the judging.#lrnchat
8:59 PM michaelkinney A3) Creativity as a process can be learned. Judgement during the process comes down to experience and genetics. #Lrnchat
8:59 PM kmarranzino A3) Seriously, both. Some people just naturally see the world uniquely, others can be taught to “look horizontally.” #lrnchat
8:59 PM sellio7 A3) its inherent BUT you have to go with it and to trust those crazy ideas or thoughts. Self confidence is a must. #lrnchat
8:59 PM StyleLearn A3) We all have it, we must be aware of it and exercise it. Otherwise it diminishes #Lrnchat
8:59 PM nickfloro @rjhogue @lrnchat I think it can be ignored, but if you pay it a little attention and work it – it can quickly come back + grow! #lrnchat
8:59 PM JeremyNegrey @michaelkinney I think of it more as a lack of process – chaos in ideas, instead the rigidity of what’s known (process). ThoughtS? #Lrnchat
