Introductions  - 
 
Hallo, I am loving these course materials as they present a piece of puzzle I have been working on. I design and deliver creative and social thinking programs for children and teenagers. Based in Amsterdam I have worked in 14 countries, in the last 10 years and I am often tasked with bringing the creativity into education practices. The thinking on mindsets, children's agency and specific feedback is very helpful. Now as a creativity advocate I am wondering why the Deeper Learning definition doesn't mention creativity, in it's place is problem solving, I'd love to know the thinking behind this.
