  • Nov 7 2013: I agree with you, imaginationation has limitless value! However it seems that knowledge can always benifits us more in real life. I believe that's why people tend to pay more attention to the development of knowledge, rather than imagination. Schools need to try their best to stimulate and protect children's imagination and we also need to keep our imagination from lossing them through dull daily life! Unfortunately, I believe I have lost much of my imagination and I am still losing them!
    • Nov 7 2013: shuyan I agree with you that you are losing the imagination because i am losing it either. We need imaginationation but we also need marks to come to ubc. imaginationation seems not have much to do with our exams and major.
      • Nov 7 2013: I think what you guys need is not imagination yet, it is a passion of acknowledging.
    • Nov 7 2013: I absolutely agree - keep your imagination alive - it is hard to restimulate when it disappears!
    • Nov 7 2013: I am losing my imagination too! Sometimes people may focus on marks more.
