There are over 400 definitions around creativity. We can say that creativity involves different ways to look, being open to new experiences and approaches, the ability to solve problems, divergent thinking, creation of new ideas, imagination, motivation along with a desire for improvement, assumption of risk and innovation among other factors. We could summarize saying that creative thinking is the ability to combine or understand elements of novel way, breaking down barriers between different areas and allowing us to an innovative approach to various problems.
Numerous studies emphasize the importance of creativity; the constant change of the reality of the context, today's society in summary requires people's flexible responses that address different situations. The specialist in creativity Sir Ken Robinson at the Conference in Monterrey, California, 2006, highlighted as the unpredictability of the future makes it difficult, through established education, educating children and young people to engage in a world that we cannot even glimpse and even less understand. In this same exhibition, Robinson highlighted the extraordinary evidence for the expressions of human creativity in an unimaginable variety of fields and activities, their importance, and the capacity for innovation that children have; the keys for the preparation of youth for the future is precisely the development of creativity and innovation.
Different experts underline that creativity is a key factor for projects of any kind to prevail. Now those same experts stresses that it is not necessary to be born with a special to be creative gift but development and the use of certain environmental factors such as freedom, support and positive challenges - which tasks are perceived as attractive and challenging-, play an important role in its stimulation. In this study are analyzed precisely what these factors - for example: enriching experiences raised in many areas and environments different, general knowledge of matter, divergent and convergent thinking, ability to identify and define issues, capacity planning or staff carried out - learning evaluation and methodologies of teaching and learning through which we can develop them based on the four milestones key to time to increase creativity: necessity, freedom, interaction and environment.
