Keeping Kids Creative with JoAnn Nocera

Creativity enthusiast and educator JoAnn Nocera knows what it’s like to stop listening to your creative spark—and she’s done the work to get hers back. Now she helps students, teachers, and parents keep that spark alive. She joined me to talk about that journey, what she sees happening in classrooms, and most importantly, how to keep kids from losing that spark in the first place. As an added bonus, a lot of what she says can be applied to adults, too. She also shares her favorite creativity tool: Neurographic doodling.

I wanted to include the link to Pavel Piskarev’s Neurographica site, but it’s no longer up. If you google “neurographic doodling,” though, you’ll find a ton of stuff!
