46. Imagination, Intelligence and Creativity

Program: Gifted and Enrichment Services/ IS

Audience: Teachers, college professors, college & high school students, parents

Dates: 6/19/2018

We must educate students for jobs that do not yet exist using technologies that have not been invented. Today’s students will need flexible intelligence, imagination and creativity. But, how do we know what works to develop student creativity? And, importantly, how do we demonstrate to parents and the community that we are fostering creativity? Our society values most what can be measured. The H-IQ (Hunter Imagination Questionnaire) is the first on-line measurement that charts the growth of student imagination and ideation capacity that leads to creativity and innovation. H-IQ measures imagination and jump starts the creative process in students (and adults). During this discussion, we will examine new measurements for imagination leading to creativity as well as the latest neuroscience research on imagination and intelligence. We will also discuss classroom, school and home practices that promote imagination leading to creativity at any age.

There is no fee for this workshop.

Dan Hunter is a playwright, songwriter, teacher and founding partner of Hunter Higgs, LLC. Hunter is the inventor of H-IQ, the first assessment of individual imagination and ideation, available on line at www.hunter-iq.com. He is the co-author of A New Measure of Imagination Ability: Anatomical Brain Imaging Correlates published March 22, 2016, in “The Frontiers of Psychology”, an international, peer-reviewed journal. He was executive director of the Massachusetts Advocates for the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities (MAASH) a statewide advocacy and education group. Hunter has 25 years’ experience in politics and arts advocacy, serving as Director of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs (a cabinet appointment requiring Senate confirmation). He has taught creative writing at Boston University since 2000.
