Post Title: Linear vs. Non- Linear
By smaxy, Feed Name: Creativity Is Important
Preview: Linear vs. Non- Linear Reflection: I absolutely loved reading the article "Can Creativity Be Taught?", written by August Turak.

Title: Why is creativity important?

Knowing that learning stimulates creativity and visa-versa adds interest to a lifetime of learning.
