Reflection and dialogue

Thought for the day

Reflection and dialogue are important for creativity, and making time for reflection pays dividends. As the educationalist, Paulo Freire (2005, p.3) argues:

‘There is a dynamic movement between thought, language and reality that, if well understood, results in a greater creative capacity.’

Feed your creativity with reflection. Find creative spaces where you can reflect.

Take a few moments to think about one thing you learnt today. Why did it make an impact on you? Have a constructive conversation with yourself about it. No, you are not going mad, you are being creative.
