  • Evaluative Self-efficacy and its Potential Role in the Evaluation and
           Selection of Ideas: A Metacognitive Perspective

    • Abstract: In two studies, we examined the creativity of ideas generated, as rated by judges, and metacognitive feelings as antecedents of evaluative self-efficacy and relevance of strengths and weaknesses of the idea generated and accurate idea selection as consequences within the creative process. Participants in both studies completed a measure of metacognitive feelings, evaluative self-efficacy, and a divergent thinking task. In addition, participants rated their ideas and either identified strengths and weaknesses or selected their most creative idea. Two independent judges evaluated all ideas and either assessed the relevance of the strengths and weaknesses identified by participants or selected the most creative idea. Results showed a positive relationship between judges-evaluations and evaluative self-efficacy in one study and a positive relationship between metacognitive feelings and evaluative self-efficacy in both studies. Regarding consequences, results showed a positive relationship between evaluative self-efficacy and the relevance of strengths and weaknesses and a non-significant relationship between evaluative self-efficacy and accurate idea selection. The implications of our results for metacognition and creative beliefs were explained.

  • Are Video Streaming Platforms Stifling Local Production Creativity'
           The Spanish Case

    • Abstract: International streaming platforms have broken into the European market and are partnering with local production companies to produce content. Online consumption generates a huge database on the tastes and consumption patterns of viewers. Although the business of video streaming platforms is to attract subscribers, all this data could be used to produce content adapted to the different sensibilities of the audience. We want to investigate to what extent entry of the streaming companies has impacted the creativity of the production process in Spain and how creativity may be affected by this. We carried out semi-structured interviews with creative workers who produce for both linear television channels and video on demand platforms. The sample focuses on four workers from independent production companies with years of experience working for the television channels that have started working for new streaming companies. Their responses imply that big data does not appear to reduce uncertainty and is not applied to make decisions in the first stages of the production process. However, production of local shows has changed significantly.

  • The Generative Force of the Domain and the Field: Contributions of Highly
           Creative Women

    • Abstract: This study aims to explore the two less frequently researched pillars of the systems theory of creativity: domain and field, through a gender lens. Twenty-five award-winning women from different domains were interviewed. Their responses were examined using grounded theory. Results show four categories associated to domain: (1) access, including family incentive, interest in childhood, and late start; (2) relationship, reflected in high level of engagement, positive feelings, priority in life, and crisis; (3) gender barriers, encompassing family impact, financial limitations, discrimination, and being part of a minority; and (4) extra-domain, described in background and interests in other areas. Four additional categories were identified in relation to the field: (a) 10 years to gain recognition, (b) unclear criteria, (c) men hold the power, and (d) denial of gender barriers. The importance of fostering appealing domains that motivate women is discussed, along with the need for openness to interdisciplinarity and nonlinear careers. Masculinisation of the fields is problematised as an obstacle for the development and recognition of women. The personal discrimination denial paradox, in spite of accounts of the gender barriers experienced, is questioned.

  • The Influence of Parental Autonomy Support on Creative Self-concept in the
           Context of Business Education

    • Abstract: The amount of attention given to creative beliefs has increased in recent years. We wanted to answer a call for more research on the antecedents of creative self-concept, assessing the influence of parental autonomy support in the context of business education. Participants were 272 college students from Mexico who completed a battery of questionnaires assessing parental autonomy support, creative self-concept, self-reported ideation, and a divergent thinking task. Results showed a positive relationship between business-specific parental autonomy support and creative self-concept. In addition, creative self-concept had positive relationships with self-reported creative ideation and creative potential in the form of an originality index. Our results suggested that parental support was important to help students have confidence and the motivation to value the process of generating novel and useful business ideas. The implications of the results were discussed.

  • Everyday Creativity in Pandemic: A Systematic Review

    • Abstract: The article presents a systematic review of scholarly papers referring to everyday creativity in times of COVID-19. We reviewed 30 papers published between May 2020 and June 2022. We searched in SCOPUS, Google Scholar, JSTOR and PsycINFO, using combinations of the following keywords: Creativity, Pandemic and COVID-19. We follow the PRISMA guidelines for conducting systematic reviews. We established four general inclusion criteria and selected quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-design empirical papers. Three experts evaluated whether the papers met the established criteria. We analyzed the selected research qualitatively through encodings and method of constant comparisons. We built four general categories whose purpose is to systematize the main results of the papers: Creativity and Health, Increase in Creative Actions, Motivations, and Creative Growth. The analyzed papers show relationships between creative actions, well-being, and coping. The data showed increases in creative actions in times of pandemic. Enjoyment, seeking contact with others, and coping appear as the main reasons for the development of creative actions. The results highlight the importance of creative adaptation in the construction of new personal and professional development projects.

  • Image of Everyday Creativity. An Individual Case of a Person with Passion

    • Abstract: The goal of the present study is to showcase the relation of creativity and passion, captured from the perspective of an analysis of experiences, subjective encounters, and feelings of an everyday creator, as well as analysis of their products. Basing on qualitative analysis of an individual case of a person with passion, the paper presents an image of their everyday creativity. In our research, we referred to the principles of everyday creativity (Richards, 1999, 2007, 2010). Analysis of the results of The Dualistic Model of Passion (Vallerand et al., 2003; Vallerand, 2008, 2010, 2015) became the theoretical frame of reference in our pursuits of the role passion plays in the examined person’s creativity. We conducted an analysis of the process and effects of everyday creativity of this individual in the context of two dimensions of harmonious and obsessive passion (Vallerand, 2015). Additionally, we analyzed and interpreted qualitative material in the context of the concept of Flow (Csíkszentmihályi, 1996) and Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance (Duckworth et al., 2007; Duckworth & Quinn, 2009; Duckworth, 2016). We analyzed traits of the examined everyday creator in the context of the Big-Five concept of personality (McCrae, 1987; McCrae & Costa, 1999). The research shows that using the theory of passion to analyze an individual’s everyday creativity can reveal two extremely different images of a person’s creative works, their personality, as well as the creative process itself. These images are differentiated by harmonious passion and obsessive passion, considered here as disparate sources of creativity.

  • Octahedral Creativity Framework

    • Abstract: Currently, Rhodes’ 4p framework of creativity is the most widely accepted framework to understand creativity. In spite of this, there are many new theories focused on some facets of creativity that shape a fragmented puzzle with pieces that overlap and intertwine in a very complex way. The absence of an integrating framework adapted to the incursion of new theories prevents us from achieving that global vision of a finished puzzle, where each theory fits perfectly. The Octahedral Creativity Framework (OCF) fills this gap. It is built on Hermagoras´ framework of seven circumstances (who, in what way, what, where, when, why, and by what means) and 26 current frameworks and theories of creativity, including Rhodes’ 4P creativity framework (Person-who, Process-How, Product-what and Press-where/when). It is shaped as an octahedron, where the six main dimensions are placed on their vertices: Person, Product, Process, Environment, Motive, and Means. Factors derived from dimension interaction are located on its corresponding edges and faces. This research shows graphically how 26 of the main creativity frameworks and theories integrate their dimensions and factors in the OCF. The OCF provides a better understanding of the construct of creativity. This global integrative framework opens new research paths based on certain factors and their interaction with other close elements. The gain in knowledge also suggests pragmatic consequences in the lines of evaluating and teaching creativity not only to enhance economic development but to enhance our personal well-being.

  • Pragmatism and Creativity: Patenting the Manifesto from Dewey’s
           Aesthetic Experience

    • Abstract: An original way to make sense of the aesthetic experience concept – in a Deweyan perspective – is from the Art-Education binomial. After studying the pragmatist philosophical category of Experience in John Dewey, a product of Doctoral theoretical research in education, it was possible to characterize a new art movement: School Art. Hence, this conceptual-theoretical finding will expand a wide range of art movements that emerged between the nineteenth century and contemporaneity: Art Nouveau, Impressionism, Art, Futurism, Action Painting, and Children’s Art, among many others. However, because of lexical reasons and hoping to achieve greater acceptance among theorists, the so-called School Art will patent from this paper as a neologism named from now on as Artscholarism. Thus, its philosophical-historical foundations, characteristics, and description will be the article’s primary purpose. In that sense, psychological and historical discussions will emerge throughout the paper. In conclusion, the new art movement – Artscholarism – comes from Deweyan thinking and is framed by creativity and a social context.

  • Predictive Power of Social Environment, Grit, and Motivation for Creative
           Potential of Science Learners

    • Abstract: The study was conducted on science learners at high school- and college-level to explore the interrelation of various factors from social environment, cognitive, and non-cognitive resources affecting their creative potential. A hierarchical regression method was used to determine how well positive behavior of parents, supportive behavior of friend groups, grit, motivation in science, and legislative thinking style could predict the creative potential of the science learners. The results revealed that supportive friend group behavior, consistency of interest (a sub-factor of grit), and legislative thinking style can predict the creative potential of science learners. Group variance explained by them was at over 53%. Legislative thinking style turned out to be the most dominant predictor, with 63% of unique variance explained by it. Positive friend group behavior came second, with 9% unique variance explained to the residual. Finally, consistency of interest could explain 12% of unique variance but with negative sign, implying it was not a component of the creative potential of science learners.

  • Creativity in Ibero-American Early Childhood Education Curricula

    • Abstract: Given the wide diversity of conceptions of creativity, this study analyzes ten Ibero-American early childhood education curricula with the aim of finding out what concept, approach, and teaching methodology they propose for creativity. The research addresses two questions: what is the implicit or explicit notion of creativity held by the Early Childhood curricula, and what methodological recommendations are included to foster creativity in the classroom' The study used qualitative methodology, specifically content analysis completed with expert judgement. Results showed the importance of creativity in the curricula analyzed and highlighted not only the need to clarify the term at a conceptual level, but also to examine in depth the teaching and learning methodologies used. In conclusion, the study urges to strengthen artistic training in both initial and continuing education studies.

  • Integrated Gamification Model in a Constructivist Learning Environment for
           the Promotion of Creative Skills

    • Abstract: The Knowledge Society has highlighted the importance of creativity as a goal competence, which should be fostered in higher education institutions; therefore, it is necessary to integrate innovative educational experiences oriented to the development of creativity complementing the professional training of students. Recent research from psychology and pedagogy reports advances associated with the nature, evaluation, composition, and conditions for teaching creativity that have resulted in successful applications in only one facet of the creative process. In this research, we propose an integrated model for making educational interventions through online courses. This model combines contributions to the teaching of creativity from pedagogy in relation to the pedagogical model, instructional design, and conditions of the teaching-learning process required for the promotion of creativity. It also includes the contributions of psychology in relation to the cognitive processes and skills associated with creativity, the techniques and activities for the development of creative skills, as well as the principles associated with intrinsic motivation based on the theory of self-determination through its application in the learning technique called gamification. The advantage of this integrated model is that it incorporates and fosters multiple components of creativity simultaneously, with the objective of generating creative results of greater breadth and quality.

  • Creativity Ratings of Fashion Outfits Presented on Instagram: Does Gender

    • Abstract: Rationale: Creativity assessment can be influenced by rater characteristics, including social group membership, such as gender. As raters are often male, the gender composition of rater panels in the Consensual Assessment Technique (CAT) could introduce unintended implicit biases into this measurement methodology. The present study analyzed such biases by examining gender differences in creativity assessment.Method: We applied the CAT and asked male (n = 26) and female (n = 39) judges to rate the creativity of fashion outfits presented on Instagram. We then examined gender differences in mean creativity ratings and rater consistency (inter-rater reliability). In an additional qualitative analysis, we analyzed implicit theories of creativity of female and male raters by comparing the criteria that these raters applied when assessing creativity.Results: We found no systematic support for gender differences in the level of creativity ratings, but observed that rating consistency was significantly higher for female than for male judges. Additional content analysis suggested that female and male raters attached different relative importance to various assessment criteria, indicating gender differences in rating criteria.Discussion: Our study suggests that rater panel composition can indeed affect aspects of creativity assessment, although we do not obtain strong support for a gender-related bias in the CAT methodology.

  • Arts and Creativity in Hong Kong Kindergartens: A Document Analysis of
           Quality Review Reports

    • Abstract: In Hong Kong, the Education Bureau (EDB) regularly assesses the quality of services provided by publicly subsidized kindergartens to children aged 3 to 6. Quality Review (QR) reports are written by government officials and published on the EDB’s website. This study analyzes the feedback pertaining to Arts and Creativity to better understand the role this learning area plays in Hong Kong kindergartens. Lexical and content analyses were applied on 164 QR reports published between 2017 and 2020. Findings showed that: (1) the role of Arts and Creativity in the QR reports is relatively minor, which suggests that this learning area is somewhat secondary in Hong Kong kindergartens; (2) presence of the various art forms differs significantly, with Music and Visual Arts being more frequent than Drama and especially Dance; and (3) classroom activities seem to be teacher-centered, product-oriented, and reproductive. Findings suggest that the Arts and Creativity pedagogies enacted in Hong Kong kindergartens are not fully consistent with the official kindergarten Curriculum Guide, which draws on a Western conceptualization of creativity in the arts. We argue that this curriculum/practice gap reveals the need for local stakeholders to embrace a “glocalization” paradigm. Limitations, future research, and implications are discussed.

Unlike traditional writing, which uses text alone, multimodal writing relies on the use of a combination of modes to convey meaning such as text, speech, images, audio, gesture, and space. Scholars of multimodal writing stressed that using multiple modes allows for greater creativity and newness. Recently, however, scholars have questioned whether creativity is so straightforward in students’ multimodal writing. Students may resist producing new types of writing. Their creativity outcome is dependent upon their preferences and their goals in the writing assignment. This article examines students’ choices when given the freedom to compose in any mode and their perceptions of their multimodal writing experience in comparison with traditional essay writing. Drawing on data from students’ multimodal products, surveys, and interviews we show how students simply used available resources in their multimodal composing and how creativity was negotiated. Although they identified several affordances for multimodal writing and described it as more interesting than conventional essay writing, they seemed to resist incorporating a variety of semiotic resources into their projects because their goal was to showcase their writing skills. We argue that developing explicit knowledge about various modes helps improve students’ understanding of multimodal writing as creative design.

  • Spreading one’s Wings, Milestones, Deus ex Machina: Self-creation as a
           Process of Changing Your Life with the Examples of Narrations Provided by

    • Abstract: This paper presents narrative-biographic research conducted with participation of women who declare that they have introduced important changes into their lives. The qualitative data was collected using narrative interviews as well as a tool to examine changes in the biographic perspective; namely, Line of life. In the presented paper, the authors reconstructed biographical self-creation, meaning the ways of life in which important changes are a central category of a story about life. The authors reconstruct three different ways of narrators’ lives – “spreading one’s wings,” “milestones,” “deus ex machina,” and a case study that describes the process of self-creation and introduction of important changes into a life in more detail.

  • Visual Art Gifted Child in Pre-School and Early School Years

    • Abstract: Visual arts media in pre-school and early school years and development of children’s drawing are well researched. However, when one considers that children are endowed with a talent for visual arts, the research is not as comprehensive and clear-cut. The signs of freedom of expression and imagination, intuitiveness and originality, an inclination to individual work, high sensitivity, and other indicators begin to show soon after visual art gifted (VAG) children enter the representative stages of visual arts. This article was based on a longitudinal case study that was carried out to show some aspects of the functioning of a VAG child in pre-school and early school years and to make some suggestions on how to consider the needs of VAG children.

  • Collaborative Musical Creativity between Students and Adults: The Sonorous

    • Abstract: While creativity is a key element of contemporary curriculum frameworks around the world, it is still insufficiently fostered in formal education settings. This study analyzes a project for collaborative musical creativity, entitled The Sonorous Paella. Participants (N = 12) were eight Year 4 secondary students, two professional musicians, an artist-in-residence, and a music teacher. Drawing on a graphic musical score, the participants worked together for 1.5 months to produce a group composition and performance. They were provided with various sound producers (instruments, everyday objects, technological devices) and were encouraged to flexibly utilize the physical space to maximize collaborative participation. Field notes and pictures taken during working sessions and rehearsals, audio recordings from the final concert, and individual interviews with all participants were qualitatively analyzed. In response to the three study objectives, we conclude that: (1) the design of this collaborative project was consistent with current research-based creativity discourses; (2) drawing on the quality and originality of the final concert, the project fostered the musical creativity of the group; and (3) participants’ perceptions of and opinions about their creativity learning processes were unanimously positive. Our final aim is to inspire music teachers in designing curriculum units that foster collaborative musical creativity.

  • Assessing Creativity from the Viewpoint of Law

    • Abstract: Originality is the main criterion for creating an author’s work. However, authors are often influenced by previous works of other authors that they have seen, heard or experienced. The aim of this study is to identify criteria for determining creativity in authors’ works, trying to find and define the difference between accidental influence and deliberate misappropriation or plagiarism. This article does not claim an in-depth analysis of creativity and originality from a social science perspective. It is more a scientific essay on creativity from a law science point of view, so that further research can be carried out in the field of authorship and its determination. In order to find an answer to the research question (Where does influence end and plagiarism begin'), theoretical framework and knowledge about creativity were observed, international and national laws were studied, case law from different countries was researched, materials of international conferences were examined, as well as information accessible on the Internet on copyright issues was observed. The research used a descriptive method to investigate the works of various researchers on the types of mutual influence, regulatory framework and court practice in this field, as well as a grammatical, systemic, teleological, and historical interpretation of legal norms to assess the inadequacy of existing legal norms and propose the necessary amendments in legislative enactments. The main result of this study is understanding that the factor of consciousness or subconscious forms the main criteria. If the influence is unintentional, the copyright of the original work is not infringed, but if repetition is intentional, when it goes beyond originality, the new work is considered to be an appropriation of authorship or plagiarism.
