This is a follow up to a previous discussion on how the word "creativity" may have an art bias. Several comments have agreed that it might, and others said that "creativity" was over-used and had lost meaning.
So, what terms do you use to get students and others to think "creatively" in ALL subject areas?

Do you see a gap between individuals who are thought to "have" creativity and those who claim to "not have" creativity? If you see it, what might contribute to this gap?

I would like to have a comments or feedback area after each weekly session to allow us to make some timely comments for the week. I am not always home from work in time to make the interactive session and then I feel that I have no other good forum to post a question or give some ideas to the trainers. Does anyone else have comments to add after the lessons?
For Week 4 - It might be less confusing if the forms for the "learning path" worksheets were different colors or had other graphics on the top to differentiate it quickly from the first forms we used.

When I have asked students if they were creative, they often reflect on their artistic experiences. When I asked them if they are "original thinkers" they tell me about their thinking in many different subject areas. Do you find that using the word "creativity" has an art bias?
