Technology Can Inspire Creativity

Technology can do many things, one of them is to inspire creativity. When was the last time you picked up one of your devices and played around with it, just for the fun of it?

One of the best things about technology is that you can get really creative.

One of my favorite things about technology is that it makes it possible for me to be really creative in the way I do things. Of course, we all know that our tablets and phones enable us to do word processing and take photos. Those things are old hats. In my days as a litigator, I prepared for a murder trial on a Palm Pilot device. Today, I can prepare full multi-media presentations for clients using my tablet device. Wi-fi capability, fast processing speed, and great software programs enable me to get really creative. I am able to add music, videos, and websites to reports I give clients.

My consulting company does webinars to help business owners increase confidence, take action now, prepare business plans, develop strategic plans, and train employees. Every day I see new software programs, portable cameras, and other great tools that enable me to do more in more interesting ways. My latest camera, for instance, is smaller than a three-by-five card. I played with it on a recent trip to Orlando, Florida, and learned I could take panoramic shots, create cartoon photos, and a host of other fun things right inside the camera. Even more fun, I can send photos through wi-fi connections to my tablet, computer, or other devices.

Technology enables me to write on paper and save those notes to my electronic devices so that I no longer have to be afraid to lose dozens of post-it notes. Fast internet connections enable me to communicate and work with peers across the country in real-time to create wonderful and exciting projects. Indeed, much of modern technology is not to be feared, but to be embraced and cherished for the options it gives us.

Adult coloring books are all the rage for stress relief and inspiring creativity. Did you know that many of the new tablet devices allow you to draw your own creations? Many of us finger painted as children. We liked getting our hands messy and creating things that we imagined. New tablet devices enable us to use our fingers to create works of art we can enjoy digitally or electronically. Tablet devices also have apps that make it seem as if you are playing the piano. Download one today and enjoy the fun of creating your own composition. There is something about creating a piece of art all your own.

 

Be brave, have some fun, try to find a new feature on your devices.

technology and creativity

 

If you really want to have some fun and excitement, start playing, literally play, with your devices. Look at all the built-in programs that you never use. See if any of them spur your imagination and make you want to do something new. That sound recorder app that you never use, try that for creating messages you an email to friends and family instead of the typical email or letter. The map program you normally only use when you use the GPS in your car, try giving it to one of your young children and getting them to plan a route to school, the market or a friend’s house. The weather app? Have you ever thought about using that to follow the weather at a dream location and then using the memo program to make pretend journal entries for a day in the life at that place?

  1. Thanks for this reminder. I don’t shrink away from technology but I sometimes miss out on the features… thanks for the reminder to take the time!

  2. My daughter uses this really cool gadget to draw on and it makes the most amazing pictures I have ever seen.

  3. Technology can definitely be a blessing in helping us work more efficiently. I know I wouldn’t be able to accomplish half what I do every day without it.

  4. My parents spend six months away in Florida. Before video calling we would talk every few days. Now that we have the technology to call them on camera we have had many family dinners with them on the computer.

  5. I love what technology has done for us. It is amazing to be able to video call my kids when i am away from home.

  6. Technology has changed so much in the last few years. It is amazing all the things you can do with it now. I use my phone for everything.

  7. I’m still lagging in the technology phase. I have a love hate relationship with it.

  8. I am a huge technology lover. I think it’s great how much easier my life is with all the conveniences apps and devices have to offer.

  9. I like the idea of giving the GPS/maps to a child and having them route-out their path/trajectory to school. Maps are a challenge to learn at first and I feel that we’re all getting so dependent on GPS’s.

  10. Mine and my husbands degrees are in technology so we absolutely love it. The webinar features make it so we do not have to travel as much for our jobs which is great because we have more family time. I am with you on the note taking as well. I loose stickies but when I take notes on my phone I save them and do not lose them.

  11. I’m mortified when I think about how much I don’t know about my tech devices. I’d like to think I use them beyond the basics but I know I could be much more creative. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

  12. I really love technology. I wouldn’t be able to do a lot of the things I do now without it. I’m using the computer very often since I work from it. I don’t know what I would do without it.

  13. I totally agree! Technology definitely inspires creativity and I love it! We definitely live in a weird world now, compared to when I was growing up!

  14. Totally agree. You head a lot of bad about technology, but there is a lot of good as well. I find most of my creative juices flowing when I’m using technology!

  15. Every time I turn around I find something else my phone can do. The one thing I haven’t figured out is how to print, even though it is capable of it. I need to keep working on that.

  16. I love technology. It’s so freeing to be able to do things like take notes while I’m out and about without having to use paper. I make full use of my tablet.

  17. Sounds like I could use a couple lessons from you on my technology. I know how to do the basics and that’s about it. You seem to know a lot more and I could use that.

  18. I love technology. I was one of the first female SysOps in the US in the 80s. I wouldn’t be able to work from home without technology.
