Thinking and learning creatively

Jo learned us about mindmaps and concept maps. Already familiar with mindmapping, I used this time to do some real work with the help of Mind Manager (www.mindmanager.com). Wouter was doing something similar, so we had a very productive morning 🙂

What does determine the actual effectiveness of learning? Jo shared 6 dimensions of learning power:
– growth orientation – commitment to growth and change over time
– meaning making – capacity to make personally meaningful connections
– critical curiosity – tendency to want to get below the surface and find things out
– creativity – capacity to use imagination, playfulness and intuition
– strategic awareness – capacity to be aware of how learning is happening
– Dependence & fragility – the contrast to all the other positive dimensions
The stronger you are on either dimension, the ‘steeper’ your learning curve will be.
