Todd Lubart. Creativity and Giftedness Creativity is increasingly recognized as an important part of giftedness. For example, Renzulli describes gifted children based on three dimensions: scholastic ability, creativity and personal characteristics (motivation, perseverance). In this workshop, we distinguish academic-intellectual giftedness and creative giftedness. The topics covered include a definition of creativity and an overview of the different factors (cognitive, conative, environmental) that contribute to creative potential. Then, a new tool to measure creative potential, EPoC (Evaluation of Potential Creativity) will be presented. Finally, we develop several possible ways to foster creativity in children.
