  • Design of creative virtual spaces through the use of a web application
           during the educational process about bank savings

    • Authors: Ricardo-Adán Salas-Rueda, Clara Alvarado-Zamorano
      Pages: 299– - 299–
      Abstract: The aim of this quantitative research is to design, build and analyze the use of the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings. This web application builds creative educational virtual spaces where students learn and analyze the mathematical procedure related to monthly interest rate, initial balance, final balance, interest and savings account. Also, data simulation of the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings allows that students have an active role in the learning process through the interaction and control of the contents about bank savings. The ASSURE model facilitates the planning, organization and construction of the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings through the stages of analysis, setting, selection, use, requirement and evaluation. The participants are 43 students who took the Financial Mathematics course during the 2018 school year. The results of linear regressions (machine learning) indicate that the construction of creative educational virtual spaces through the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings influences positively the assimilation of knowledge about the bank savings, simple interest and financial mathematics. The decision tree technique identifies 3 predictive models about the use of the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings in the educational field. The implications of this research allow that teachers analyze the impact of information and communications technology during the realization of school activities. Therefore, educational institutions can promote the construction and use new technological tools. Finally, the web application for the teaching-learning process on bank savings is a web application that allows the construction of creative educational virtual spaces where students personalize the learning and have flexibility of time and space during the educational process on bank savings.

  • Towards a ritualized public space above divisions: creative
           (re)construction of children’s rites of passage

    • Authors: Maria Mendel, Anna Maria Kłonkowska
      Pages: 316– - 316–
      Abstract: The article refers to anthropological, sociological and pedagogical aspects of reframing – in a creative way – the rituals addressed to children at the threshold of puberty. Based on a presentation of a new ritual of farewell to childhood, the paper is a theoretical reflection on the need of introducing new rituals that create ground for animation-educational practice. This practice – by revivifying creativity in areas considered so far closed and exclusive – makes it possible to overcome socially unfavourable structures of performance, and the inceptions of new, legitimized and empowering forms of subjective representations. Ritual’s creative qualities – in Victor Turner’s conceptualization – have inspired the authors to emphasize the need to replace a hegemony of thinking with a heterogeneity of thinking about the rites of passage. This undertaking is directed towards creating a space in social consciousness for rituals that are other than religious ones. Following Gert Biesta’s thinking, we argue that the farewell to childhood in the form we propose can be seen as an expression of pedagogical interruption and a practice of commonality which is a common good, one endlessly fragile and requiring cultivation. The secular children’s rite of passage and other secular rituals that arise not in opposition to religious rituals, but alongside them, are such common goods.

  • Challenges to the learning organization in the context of COVID-19
           pandemic uncertainty: creativity-based response

    • Authors: Vestina Vainauskienė, Rimgailė Vaitkienė
      Pages: 332– - 332–
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic poses several challenges transforming the learning organization. The retention of sustainability in the context of COVID-19 pandemic uncertainty requires immediate response. Therefore, this paper addresses the following research question: how does organizational creativity contribute to managing challenges in the context of COVID-19 pandemic uncertainty as a precondition for resilience' Thus, the paper offers several contributions. First of all, the research dwells on the conceptual attributes of the learning organization: the object is identified and substantiated, the ways the learning organization’s vulnerability manifests itself through are presented; the factors creating the learning organization’s COVID-19 pandemic vulnerability are discussed; it is identified what capacities are necessary and in what learning processes they develop to reduce the learning organization’s COVID-19 pandemic vulnerability. Secondly, the paper identifies and discusses critical challenges to the learning organization caused by COVID-19 pandemic uncertainty, the ones that the organization must react to immediately to reduce its COVID-19 pandemic vulnerability: rapid social innovation cycle, expansion of organizational learning and optimisation of perceived organizational support for employee trust and commitment. Thirdly, the paper discuss how creativity is important for response.

  • “What is right and real – is the storytelling”:
           masculinity, media and creativity

    • Authors: Shlomit Aharoni Lir, Liat Ayalon
      Pages: 348– - 348–
      Abstract: The stereotypical view of creativity as an emblem of youth, and old age as a signifier of decline can hold grave consequences for filmmakers in the second half of life, as this misconception can result in negative attitudes, a decline in media coverage, and less funding for film production. Thus, ageing male film directors might face a collisional intersection, when the gender-based status that provides social privileges, meets with older age-based status, which leads to social weakening. This qualitative study explored the means which male directors in the second half of life use to remain creative and make films in an ageist, vastly changing world. The study is based on a dataset of transcribed semi-structured interviews with 13 well-known Israeli male directors over the age of 55. The findings led to the formation of a model of creativity in older age, which consists of the following six pathways: inspiration, adaptation, innovation, preservation, circumvention and imagination. While some of the interviewed directors emphasized their ability to change and adapt to the new cinematic world, others adhered to their old filmmaking language. The understanding of the cinematic creation as based upon the art of storytelling was common among both “camps”.

  • Arts and culture as creative learning of students through cultural product
           design

    • Authors: Jong Boonpracha
      Pages: 364– - 364–
      Abstract: The study explores whether a design activity could promote creative learning expression and development among students regarding arts and culture issues through cultural product design. Therefore, students engage in designing a cultural product model. The study aims to analyze their ability to develop arts and culture through sketches and an appearance model. The research project was conducted to observe students (aged 18–20 years) as they negotiated and shared creative ideas during the process of cultural product design, interaction with fellow students, and the design presentation. The results indicate that design activities significantly contributed to students’arts and culture learning by developing creative ideas through cultural product design. Moreover, students developed reasoning, communication, and collaboration skills during the development of their work.

  • Creativity and visuality of closed spaces: the case of Ettore Scola

    • Authors: Dario Martinelli
      Pages: 376– - 376–
      Abstract: The article seeks to discuss a particular stylistic tendency, within audiovisuality, to contextualize narration and themes within closed (and often small) places – a tendency which has been given the name of claustrophilia. While particularly suitable to genres like horrors and thrillers, where the closed space often takes sinister and threatening connotations, claustrophilia may also appear in a more positive light, as a metaphor of shelter and safety, and has been in fact represented in all kind of ways. Within this picture, and throughout all its history, Italian cinema has often shown a remarkable attention for claustrophiliac representations. As a consequence, the focus of the article will be the director Ettore Scola, a figure specialized in this approach, and particularly the case study of his 1977 release A Special Day (in Italian: Una giornata particolare), one of his most celebrated works, and a well-known one at international level, due also to its Academy Awards candidature and Golden Globe Awards win.

  • Creative processes and emotions in COVID-19 pandemic

    • Authors: Romina Cecilia Elisondo
      Pages: 389– - 389–
      Abstract: The objective was to analyse, from the perspective of the participants, creative processes developed in isolation and social distancing by COVID-19 pandemic. The main interest was to study transformations in daily, family and work life, focusing on the creation of new practices and projects. Likewise, it was relevant to study emotions, obstacles and difficulties perceived by the participants. The study was qualitative, the participants (N = 25) were selected by non-probabilistic convenience sampling. All the participants lived in intermediate or small towns in Argentina. Data collection was carried out in September, 2020. Semi-structured interviews and online qualitative research were the data collection instruments. The Atlas.ti 8 program was used for the qualitative analysis of textual and audio-visual data. The results indicated significant modifications in the lives of the participants from isolation and distancing. These changes demand flexibility and adaptability as well as creative processes for generating alternatives and solving problems. In the context of the home, transformations of times, spaces and relationships were observed. Work and leisure activities also were reconfigured. Sadness appeared as the predominant emotion. However, some participants experienced enthusiasm and joy for the new projects. The purpose of this study was to build knowledge that contributes to the design of health promotion project.

  • Influence of psychological conditions on the level of creative imagination

    • Authors: Svitlana Kryshtanovych, Valentyna Bilyk, Olena Matvienko, Liudmyla Stepanenko, Hanna Tsvietkova
      Pages: 406– - 406–
      Abstract: The main purpose of the study is to determine the influence of psychological conditions on the development of creative imagination. As a result of research, we applied several key methods that allowed us to achieve this goal. First of all, it is a method of theoretical analysis and synthesis. Also, methods of correlation analysis and a number of empirical methods were used for the existing experimental group (observation, conversation, questionnaire, testing). The analysis of the psychological conditions of the correlation matrix showed that there is a noticeably high connection between the influences of psychological conditions on the development of creative imagination, thereby confirming our assumption. According to the results of the study of the development of creative imagination, the dominance of the middle and low levels of its development was established. In addition, the criteria of creative imagination were diagnosed, which included the originality of images, flexibility of images, performance of images, speed of the created image. It was found that the most developed is the originality of images, the least developed is the performance of images.

  • Fostering destination creativity through tourism lifestyle
           entrepreneurship: exploring the moderating effect of financial orientation
           

    • Authors: Álvaro Dias, Tatiana Azambuja
      Pages: 420– - 420–
      Abstract: The motivations and desires of tourists are constantly changing, and in this context, entrepreneurship demonstrates a significant contribution. Especially in the tourism industry, lifestyle entrepreneurs stand out for their contribution not only to the tourism sector, but also by their community attachment. Entrepreneurs with a lifestyle, goals, characteristics, and attitudes are distinct from other entrepreneurs. This research aims to portray the factors influencing their satisfaction with life perception, an important topic to understand their willingness to stay in the community. To this end, a survey was applied to 115 tourism lifestyle entrepreneurs, a data generated was analysed with partial least squares for confirmatory factor analysis. Findings reveal that networking, atmosphere, place attachment positively influence satisfaction with life. Furthermore, findings indicate that the financial objectives moderate these relationships, meaning that the way they conceive and act in their business also influences their satisfaction with life.

  • Measurement properties of attitudes towards creative persons
           questionnaire: a reliable tool for understanding attitudes towards
           creative persons

    • Authors: Xavier Ordóñez Camacho, Sonia Romero Martínez
      Pages: 435– - 435–
      Abstract: The 21st century is characterized by challenges and opportunities and become the century of creativity. This is because the individuals develop creative tools to confront the changes that they are living. In this sense the study of attitudes towards creative persons is relevant, especially in the education context, because it permits to develop intervention programs that foster better attitudes on teachers and students. For that reason, the main objective of this research is to develop a questionnaire that allows to measure the attitudes of university students towards creative persons, and, to gather evidence about its reliability and validity. This research was made through an instrumental analytical study, with a sample of students pertaining to several faculties of the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. At first, exploratory factor analysis, with a random half of the sample, was made. Secondly, the previous structure was confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis. The results confirm the three-dimensional structure (behavioral, affective, and cognitive dimensions). The final model exhibits an optimal fit and adequate reliability. The proposed instrument is a valid and reliable measure of the attitudes of the university students towards the creative persons.

  • Digital responsibility insights from a cross-cultural design thinking
           workshop for creativity

    • Authors: Hyun-Kyung Lee, Joo Eun Park
      Pages: 451– - 451–
      Abstract: To be digitally responsible, one should be aware of the current issues in the digital world; therefore, raising awareness on digital responsibility and data privacy is important in the public and private sectors. This study aimed to raise awareness on digital responsibility and help students understand the importance of utilizing the design thinking process for generating creative ideas. The authors facilitated a design thinking workshop where 62 students from different cultural backgrounds (Korean and Swiss) and majors collaboratively explored data privacy issues and presented their novel, creative solutions. The data gathered from observations and interviews were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. These students of the digital age developed remarkable ones, such as keeping data safe from social networking services and protecting voice data from being recorded by a third party. The cross-cultural, interdisciplinary team rapidly implemented their creative and globally applicable solutions with visually feasible, diagrammed prototypes, which is an effective tool of the design thinking process. The article demonstrates how design thinking techniques could be applied in university classes and could inspire teachers to use the five stages of design thinking in their teaching.

Based on the semi-structured interviews with dance and movement therapy practitioners, empirical findings reveal the role and meaning of creativity in the therapeutic process and discuss the elements of creativity in dance and movement therapy: game, spontaneity, and imagination. The practitioners of dance and movement therapy tend to conceptualize creativity broader than the classical definitions suggest. The role of creativity subjectively is interpreted as fundamental in the therapeutic process. It binds all other elements of the therapeutic process (such as movement, dance, and a therapeutic relationship); it is seen as a part of the communicative process between the therapist and a client. More specific identifications of the role of creativity foresee creativity as allowing to make a distance from emotionally painful situations and emotions.

  • Stylistic deviation and Pakistani idiom: creative use of English in Moni
           Mohsin’s Duty Free

    • Authors: Mehvish Riaz
      Pages: 480– - 480–
      Abstract: The study highlights the creative use of deviation as a stylistic device for presenting linguistic innovations in the novel Duty Free (originally published in 2011) written in English by a Pakistani writer Moni Mohsin. It has been explored how and to what extent the eight types of deviation, such as lexical, grammatical, semantic, phonological, graphological, dialectal, deviation of register, and deviation of historical period suggested by Geoffrey N. Leech have been employed by Moni Mohsin in her novel. By identifying how morphological, compound, and idiomatic neologisms have been created, words from native languages have been borrowed, and innovative similes, metaphors, and tautologies rooted in Pakistani culture have been employed, the study helps in understanding the extent to which novel uses of English language create unique stylistic effects, add to the richness and vitality of English, and cause variation simultaneously. Deviation of historical period and certain subcategories of phonological deviation have not been found. The study has implications for Pakistani English, lexicology, stylistic foregrounding, and creative writing in English.

  • The expression of socio-emotional competence among younger Lithuanian
           adolescents as the precondition for their creativity

    • Authors: Tomas Butvilas, Kristina Kovaitė
      Pages: 497– - 497–
      Abstract: Socio-emotional education is sometimes referred to as the missing part that links academic knowledge to success in school, family, community, workplace, and life. Emotion intelligence is basically a construct that has gained rather great interest nowadays, especially its influence on interpersonal relationships by contributing to optimal social functioning. Recent events both in the country and in the world show how dangerous it is when children do not acquire a solid moral foundation in acquiring knowledge. Meanwhile, socio-emotional education linked to academic teaching helps to solve this issue. Recently, there has been more and more discussions about socio-emotional education and its positive impact on children’s psychological health. Socio-emotional abilities (so-called “emotional intelligence”, “social intelligence”) are the abilities to work together with others, to learn productively, to play the most important roles in the family, community, workplace. Success not only in school but also in later life phases accompanies those students who: a) realistically evaluates oneself and one’s possibilities (self-awareness); b) properly manages their feelings and controls their behavior (self-control); c) accurately interprets the signs of the social environment (social awareness); d) effectively resolves interpersonal conflicts (communication skills); e) makes good decisions in the face of day-to-day difficulties (responsible decision making). Therefore, this paper discusses on how to identify the knowledge and skills of students in socio-emotional education and at the same time to identify certain areas where some gaps still exist.

  • The role of new media in shaping a creative environment for regional
           development

    • Authors: Małgorzata Suchacka, Piotr Zawojski
      Pages: 511– - 511–
      Abstract: Progressive technologization of society has an impact on an innovative approach to art and culture. New media play an important role in this context by shaping the environments of creative people who refer to regional resources in their work. The main purpose of the paper is to analyse selected theoretical concepts covering the issues of the use of new media art in the context of a symbiotic relationship with the creative environment of the region. The authors use the method of literature analysis and an interdisciplinary synthesis of the achievements of social sciences and humanities. The theoretical assumptions presented before are illustrated by the reference to a part of wider authors’ sociological research – expert debates in the environment of regional creators of new media art. The conclusions indicate potential development trends and especially promising directions for further activities in the field of using new media in shaping the creative environment.

  • Ethical leadership and organizational support for creativity at work

    • Authors: Gustavo A. Esguerra, Kety Jáuregui, Juan C. Espinosa
      Pages: 526– - 526–
      Abstract: With permanents global changes, organizations are increasingly required to promote employee creative behavior to deal with competitiveness keeping ethical leadership practices and responsible models of management. The purpose of this research is to investigate the effect of ethical leadership on creativity and estimates the mediating effect of organizational support for creativity in this relationship. A cross-sectional approach with a sample of 258 professionals, employees of different companies and economic sectors in the city of Lima, Peru, was employed. Valid and reliable instruments were used to assess the perception of the variables studied, and direct and indirect effects were tested using structural equation models. The results indicate that ethical leadership positively influences creativity both directly and through organizational support for creativity. This draws attention to the opportunity that leaders have to optimize organizational processes, procedures, and protocols oriented toward responsibility and respect for others to encourage creative behavior in employees. Furthermore, theoretical, and practical implications are discussed.

  • Field dependent–independent cognitive style and creativity from the
           process and product-oriented approaches: a systematic review

    • Authors: Marco Giancola, Massimiliano Palmiero, Simonetta D’Amico
      Pages: 542– - 542–
      Abstract: Creativity is a multifaceted construct that can be defined both in terms of process (e.g.,divergent thinking) and product (e.g., a poem). Across years, it has been related to different cognitive and personality variables, including cognitive styles. The current systematic review aimed to summarize the literature on the relationships between field dependence–independence and creativity, considering both the creative process and creative production approaches. We selected eight studies using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses rules. Findings revealed that a consistent number of studies focused on creative process mainly in terms of divergent thinking instead of convergent thinking, also providing misleading results. Additionally, only two studies focused on creative production, showing that field independents were more creative than field dependents. Given the contradictory results and the paucity of studies, we concluded that the association between field dependence–independence and creativity needs to be further investigated by more accurate empirical explorations. Limitations and future research directions are discussed.

  • The analysis of construct validity of Indonesian creativity scale using
           Rasch model

    • Authors: Dian Indihadi, Dodi Suryana, Aslina Binti Ahmad
      Pages: 560– - 560–
      Abstract: This study was conducted to analyze the construct validity of the Indonesian creativity scale developed by the Integrated Services Unit for Guidance and Counseling Services at the Indonesia University of Education, Indonesia. The research sample was 500 elementary school students in Indonesia, with 22 samples in West Java, Indonesia. This study employed a quantitative approach and a descriptive method with a survey design as the research method. Data were analyzed using the Rasch model using Winstep version 5.1.4. The analysis results show that the interaction between respondents and items is included in the very good category. The respondent’s reliability value which shows the consistency of the respondent in filling out the instrument is included in the very good category. The reliability of the instrument shows that it is in the very good category. However, the unidimensionality of the instrument indicates that the instrument is still not perfect for measurement. In addition, four items do not meet the measurement standards, which have a logit value that is greater than the average value after being added to the standard deviation value, and some item which has a bias in the gender category. It is hoped that with the results of this study, the Indonesian creativity scale instrument can be evaluated and developed so that an accurate instrument is obtained in measuring the creativity of elementary school students.

  • Historical comic’s superpowers: the creative power to communicate
           visually historical epics

    • Authors: Vaida Nedzinskaitė-Mitkė
      Pages: 577– - 577–
      Abstract: Comics are an indisputable part of popular culture. But compared to any other audiovisual media products, the production of this form of entertainment is relatively cheap. Thus, on this fact alone comic book artform could be used to fill the demand for local historical genre in popular culture and, in turn, to contribute significantly to the formation of a modern national identity among the youngest generations of the country. However, that is not the only or even the best superpower of the medium when it comes to production of fictional historical epics for entertainment purposes. In this article, the author explores comic medium’s creative aspects that could be used to effectively communicate the various visual aspects of the past. Findings suggest that the most important visual medium’s communicative tool that creates a unique and immersive experience is stylisation, in tandem with spatial and temporal systems. Additionally, the author discusses the challenges and opportunities for comic media to emerge in an educational context.

  • The elements of making: a social practice perspective for everyday
           creators

    • Authors: Isabelle Risner, David Gauntlett, Mary Kay Culpepper
      Pages: 590– - 590–
      Abstract: In contrast to behavioural approaches that attempt to explain creativity, social practice theories commonly emphasize aspects of the material world that shape and reproduce how people engage with them. How might social practice theory clarify how making affects millions of hobbyist creators – and what makes making matter to them' This article examines the theoretical work tying creativity to social practice. It then reports on a project in which small groups of everyday creators in the United Kingdom (n = 95) gathered in workshops to discuss their experiences and opinions regarding the materials, meanings, and competences of making. A model-making research method instigated peer discussion revealing both individual and shared accounts of practice. The data indicated that participants, regardless of practice, experienced creating as an ongoing performance providing many benefits that promote personal and societal transformation. With our graphic iteration of the elements of making, we assert that the meanings these makers attached to their various do-it-yourself practices were underscored by the materials they worked with and the competences they built in creating.
