I posted this to my Facebook page last night and thought it might be of interest over here. It is a reaction to Adobe Education's research paper "Creativity and Education: Why it Matters". I am a bit leery of formalizing the subject of "Creativity" into an academic role and, instead, suggest that it can't be taught. It must,though be fostered.
