What does the term "Educativity" mean to you and how can it contribute to our understanding of schools in the 21st century?

Education and Creativity can mean different things to different people, but what does the combined new term "Educativity" mean to you and how can it contribute to our understanding of schools in the 21st century?
"Educativity" expresses the longing for creativity in the educational system in Jordan and the Arab World, and it will hopefully contribute to inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, and empowering young leaders in Jordan and the Arab World.

    I think education always need to be creative. Infact, it needed and stil does need to be customized to a degree. Ou children, YOuth and adults for that mtter are al different and the changing of our maket places, households and values require us to embrass creativity in order for people to be ignited and find thei passion and life calling.
