Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI

Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
A little over a year ago, John Spencer and I tossed around an idea for a book called The Creative Classroom.  Given our combined experience with design thinking (as educators, leaders, and people who actively engage in creative work), we planned out a solid book on the topic. We wrote the kind of book we thought education publishers would want us to submit. It was decent. It was informative. But then Dave Burgess contacted us and said, “I’m not interested in an education book. I’m interested in a manifesto. I’m interested in a bold statement telling the world the heart and soul of what you are about.”

Dave encouraged us to make this book our own – to write the kind of book that we would have wanted to read as teachers. He also wanted this book to be fully ours, including John’s sketches throughout and on the design of the cover. But more importantly, he encouraged us to abandon the idea of writing a book we were “supposed” to write and instead write the book we felt we needed to write.

And that’s exactly what we did. John and I tossed the outline. In fact, we scrapped the entire first draft. We focused on a single idea: that every child deserves a creative classroom and that design thinking can help make that happen in every classroom with every child. We dove into research. We asked hard questions. We interviewed tons of teachers doing amazing things. We fine-tuned the LAUNCH Cycle, adding some key components often missing in design thinking. We ended up with the book that needed to be written and something I am truly proud of authoring with John:

LAUNCH: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student.

And while the internet offers a plethora of free content, there are times when it’s worth it to pay a little extra, Holden said. Those times could include when materials are done exceptionally well, when a resource is very unique, when an educator finds things he or she will use more than one time, or when it would cost more time to find exactly what an educator is searching for.

“As a teacher, you know there are not enough hours in the day for you to do everything you need to do,” Holden said. “Anything that can save time is worth my money.”

General article that includes links to examples of VR and AR. 

Glen Morris's curator insight, November 23, 2015 3:13 PM

How I plan to engage the class us AR next year:

 

1. I am planning on introducing Aurasma in the science centre next year. Dead posters will come to life, the anatomy model will link to anatomy lessons, the skeleton "Mr Bones" will link to the name of each bone scanned.(https://www.aurasma.com/)

 

2. Going to have a QR scavenger hunt/ Amazing Race next year - and I plan to assess it!

 

3.QR codes on tests/reports that link to a webcam video giving feedback on each student (personalised + unique attention = switched on learners)

 

Just 3 thoughts... what are yours?
