"Young children’s acceptance of uncertainty, and seeming chaos, has lots to show us about the nature of creativity," claims Anne Wood
Creativity can sometimes seem like the bit of chaos within an organisation. Anne Wood gives an insight into the experts on dealing with a daily adventure of new ideas in her essay on children and creativity. Drawing on her experiences of trying to engage with a global audience of children, she outlines the lessons that individuals and businesses could learn from them in terms of their responses to learning, to risk, and the bombardment from information technologies. "Children do not have the answers, but they are uniquely placed to ask the questions. I believe that the more we practice listening to them in the widest possible sense of awareness and general observation of their responses to life, the better placed we will be to ask the right questions ourselves."
