Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on creativity and its embeddedness with environment.

"Creativity must, in the last analysis, be seen not as something happening within a person but in the relationships within a system" "An idea or product that deserves the label creative arises from the synergy of many sources and not only from the mind of a single person. It is easier to enhance creativity by changing conditions … Continue reading Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on creativity and its embeddedness with environment.

The logic of exploitation Vs logic of exploration.

The logic of exploitation(CAT, GRE, etc.) is given primacy to select someone to work for logic of exploration(Research). Given the fact that the former task can be done better by computers, I don't know about the relevance of its continued glamourification in the future. https://twitter.com/johnywrites/status/1306231813266833409?s=20 https://twitter.com/johnywrites/status/1306233644986429441?s=20

Offloading information to an external memory: Good or bad

I really think the relevancy of memorization based educational practices need more scientific investigation. How much can and should we remember in a dynamic and information-abundant-world should be investigated. How much fundamentally transient information should we remember. ?

Dr Sebastian Suggate of University of Otago has uncovered for the first time quantitative evidence that teaching children to read from age five is not likely to make that child any more successful at reading than a child who learns reading later, from age seven.
