Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | eSkills | eLeadership

Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | eSkills | eLeadership | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
In his popular TED talk, Ken Robinson made the powerful point that most of the students doing work in your classrooms today will be entering a job force that none of you can visualize. That talk is from almost ten years ago, so we already know he was right and can only assume he’ll continue to be so in the years to come.

Learning a specific skill set doesn’t have the value in today’s world that it once did. Learning how to be more creative (and thus adaptable) – now that’s what prepares students for life beyond the classroom.

Schools and businesses throughout the world are latching onto this idea. Academia has started to embrace providing courses in creativity. Many of the biggest and most successful businesses in the world now practice the 20% rule – the commitment to allowing employees to devote 20% of their work time to thinking creatively and exploring new ideas.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:40 AM

I chose this resource because I feel that inspiring students is often contingent on giving them choices and allowing their creativity to be showcased. This article has several good suggestions. Not limiting assignments to one format - reminds me of differentiating products. Give kids choices for a project. Perhaps a poster, a video, an oral presentation, an animation, a song, etc. I've also heard about the concept of "genius hour" but I was a little skeptical when it was presented to me at a conference years ago. Perhaps it is something that I need to revisit. Litigating class discussions that allow you to see the thought process of students is a difficult proposition. My suggestion is talk less and listen more - students can come up with surprisingly creative and sophisticated thoughts when you do so.

How to solve a difficult problem: Work on it as long and as hard as you can. When you run into an issue that you can not figure out, walk away and do something completely different. Get a good nights rest.

After waking up or upon working on something different, you will unexpectedly get that aha moment where the answer or possible answers come to you.

 

Do not waste time struggling with an issue, let your subconscious kick in and help you figure it out.

Curiosity: The Heart of Lifelong Learning | LEARNing To LEARN | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

If you suspect that curious kids fare better in careers and life, you're right—for a variety of reasons. Research suggests that intellectual curiosity has as big of an effect on performance as hard work. (link is external) When put together, curiosity and hard work account for success just as much as intelligence.

.

Another study found that people who were curious about a topic retained what they learned for longer periods of time (link is external). And even more impressive, research has linked curiosity to a wide range of important adaptive behaviors, (link is external) including tolerance of anxiety and uncertainty, positive emotions, humor, playfulness, out-of-box thinking, and a noncritical attitude—all attributes associated with healthy social outcomes.

We’re a society in conflict. On one hand there’s outrage over government surveillance programs and wholesale data breaches. 28% of the online population claims to use tools to disguise their identity or location. 61% of Americans say personal rights and freedoms command higher priority than anti-terror measures. On the other hand, so many trade their identities away for a pittance, or even for nothing – valuing them, wrongly, at zero.

Why are they so ready to surrender their privacy to commercial interests? Especially when their trust is betrayed so regularly due to security lapses, with such damning publicity for retailers, banks, and more usual suspects?

A lot of us voluntarily declare personal data bankruptcy. It’s a big mistake.

Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

We believe that one of the most important challenges educators face today is to prepare kids for the world that awaits them after they leave the classroom -- those "21st century skills" you keep hearing about. We've created the free resources below to support and inspire you and your students in facing that challenge.

Also, be sure to visit the Collaborize Classroom Topic Library, where you'll find thousands of topics that have been created and successfully used by educators in their own Collaborize Classroom® sites.
