Constructing a Culture of Creativity

Constructing a Culture of Creativity
Gifted education has a long and rich history of championing creative productivity in our students. Yet, many of our gifted students have become stymied by a fear of failure and the proverbial creative block. To overcome these mental roadblocks, this session explores core principles that today’s most innovative businesses and industries are utilizing to overcome the unseen forces that stand in the way of true inspiration and provides practical examples of how we can implement these principles into our gifted programs.
