The Pedagogy of Creativity

Abstract


The book is very interesting in that the author Anna Herbert
attempts to use the views of a number of psychological
analysts to explain how different theories can be used to
develop creativity in the classroom and overcome factors
that prevent a creative environment. Taking a classroom based example of post-structuralist methodology as a
starting point, she explores the relationship between
creativity as seen in psychological activity, such as dreams,
and creativity as seen in the classroom. She asks the
following questions:
• What might a methodology which taps into different
forms of creativity look like?
• Could such methodology support current
neuropsychological theories of memory and learning?
• What are the consequences of imaginary and symbolic
orders of knowledge for understanding of both
