Within education, creativity is recognized as an important 21st-century skill, but there is a lack of knowledge about the development of creativity of the primary school child. This doctoral research deepens the available knowledge about creativity and enriches this knowledge with empirical research about the development of creativity of children from 4 to 12 years old. In this research a longitudinal mixed-method research is carried out, in which quantitative and qualitative measurements are combined in order to get information about how the creative ability develops within children.
This research is part of an NWO PhD scholarship for teachers.
