In the fabric of humanity, creativity is wild and untamed, quiet and subtle, quirky and mysterious. More than ideas and brainstorming, creative thinking has given us the modern world. And the consistent practice of creativity cultivates confidence unparalleled to other learning experiences.

As I reflect on the challenges our world faces, I believe now more than ever, creative confidence needs to be at the helm of all learning. Today I launch the Year of Creative Confidence — a creativity quest designed to explore the intersections of intelligence, creativity, and originality. Each month for the 2021-2022 school year, I plan to share a collection of learning experiences rooted in research-based creative thinking strategies, design thinking methods, and cognitive flexibility. Available in Apple Pages and PDF, each collection, boldly titled Imaginariums, is designed for K-12 students AND teachers to engage the imagination, expand creative thinking skills, and build creative confidence.

The September Imaginarium instructional strategies include: 

  • Fluency
  • Flexibility
  • Originality
  • Creative Inventiveness
  • Visualization
  • Constraints 
  • Divergent thinking
  • Social-Emotional Learning

Let’s explore the absurd, the crazy, the mundane and see what we can create.
