vinay kallat Posted over 3 years ago How do creative and critical thinking interact in the classroom? It’s good 2 get views on Ur Assignments in TEDX.But if it turns in2 copy-Paste; that’s whn the problem starts and creativity ends. It destroys the very essence of the question asked. I always believe there is no particular way that help U becom success. I know there are books that teach U how; but it is just their experienc of gettin success not necessarily it works 4 U. U know the rules of the game just apply Ur own plan. Now that’s creativity. Just an example: I want 2 remove all the empty soap packages that get 2 the end of the manufacturing unit. Rules: Good ones should not be harmed. Aim: Be cost effective, Less Labor, quality result. I can go all the way 2 put up an x-ray machine 2 scan and then creatin a mechanical arm that removs all the empty packages. OR I can do the same thing by placing a fan across the end 2 blow away the empty packages. What I am tryin 2 say is there is no particular way U can solve Ur problems. It’s Ur creativity that can provide U new ways 2 solve the same problm. And I feel young brains can answr ths much better then expernce guys; because experience guys have already read of certain ways 2 tackle situations and so they generally apply those rather thinkin about new ones. But whn U don’t know a particular answer U try 2 find a new one instead of applyin an old one. Just an example was whn I askd som of my friends "Why Are manholes made circular? Most of thm replied becaus it is easy 2 transport and U can roll them and most of thm had read the answer be4 so they didn’t even think what could be the answer. While trying 2 find a new answer I got someone who had never been asked this question and he thought 4 a long time and said Its because diagonally they are symmetric so the lid wud not fall in and if were rectangle they could have fallen in as diagonally the length is more than the sides. I am sure this answer too must have been written somewhere but my point is whn U don’t know an answr it’s much easier 2 com up with a new answr.
