“Learning by doing” is a famous theory by American philosopher John Dewy, which clearly states that any learning should be relevant and practical, not just passive and theoretical. Students learn faster and remember more if they are engaged in learning and derive from the solution themselves. This is the idea of Creative Education / divergent thinking. Ignite an idea or throw up a complex problem to solve and let the learner, through his own imagination, derived from the solution. This will eventually lead to out-of-the-box thinking and ignite the creative spark in learners. This will also enhance retention in the learners.
Creative education teaches the learner to look at everything through a different vision. Only this level of education can enable a person’s ability to think beyond boundaries and to be able to transform ideas into visual reality.
