Campbell, Dylan; Tusche, Anita; O'Connor, Brendan Bo – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2022
Prior work suggests that imagining helping others increases prosocial intentions and behavior toward those individuals. But is this true for everyone, or only for those who tend toward--or away from--helping more generally? The current study (N = 283) used an imagined helping paradigm and a battery of behavioral and self-report measures of trait…

Stone, William – International Journal of the Whole Child, 2021
The purpose of this reflective article is to examine how structured STEM programs often fail to promote key traits that are crucial to the scientific process including creativity, wonder, curiosity, and imagination.

Yarker, Patrick – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2021
In several of his writings, John Dewey returned to the importance of the imagination for thinking about experience and making sense of it.

Duggan, James – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2021
This article explores the co-production of research as creative, speculative, and eventful rather than as research processes determined by equality, empowerment and social justice. There are persuasive critiques of participatory and co-produced methods. In response, the case is made for focusing instead on the complex processes through which…

Schinkel, Anders – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Education as a deliberate activity and purposive process necessarily involves mediation, in the sense that the educator mediates between the child and the world. This can take different forms: the educator may function as a guide who initiates children into particular practices and domains and their modes of thinking and perceiving; or act as a…

Lewis, Tyson E. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2020
This article proposes a 'pataphysical turn for arts-based research through the work of Alfred Jarry. Jarry outlined a unique research program that falls neatly neither into scientific inquiry nor artistic creation. Rather, this type of research can be defined in terms of three interconnected themes: (1) a postmetaphysical examination of the laws…

Combining Piagetian and Vygotskian ideas of play as a unity of cognition…

Frith, Emily; Gerver, Courtney R.; Benedek, Mathias; Christensen, Alexander P.; Beaty, Roger E. – Creativity Research Journal, 2022
A large body of research has revealed that viewing example image stimuli tends to constrain creative idea generation. However, the neurocognitive mechanisms underlying such visual fixation in creative cognition are unclear. In the present experiment, we explored whether example images impacted creative imagination and patterns of neural activity…
