Creativity is a critical aspect of our lives. Apart from merely entertaining and educating, it helps us tackle the curve balls thrown by life. It builds culture and society and creates shared experiences. Is there a direct link between productivity and creativity? Does higher productivity come at the cost of loss of creativity? As with any issue dealing with any aspect of technology, the answers are often conflicting.
- High school teachers believe that students have been conditioned by the Internet to find quick answers rather than think a topic through.
- Over-availability of information reduces the need to practice, which, as the adage goes, makes perfect.
- Mundane, non creative tasks that consumed precious time and effort can now be diverted to more creative pursuits thanks to automation.
