This project investigates what creativity is and whether or not it can be taught. An investigation of the current education system was conducted. Research has shown that our education system is not doing a satisfactory job when it comes to nurturing creativity in students. Our educational systems lack focus in the area of creativity. It is up to the parents to demonstrate and nurture creativity for their children in the home. In order for this to take place, parents must first understand what creativity is, its importance in society and the economy, the fact that it is teachable and learnable and what action they must take in order to teach it and nurture it in their children. In order to get this information to the parents, I’ve created a blog in which I will publish articles. The articles on this blog will educate parents as to what creativity is and how to teach it and nurture it in their children.
