34 Smart Ideas For Using Smartphones In The Classroom

 

Have students collaborate with their off-campus peers by exchanging phone numbers. This may sound far-fetched, but the organization is easy to set up. Through teacher communication, an explanatory permission letter, and a shared Google form/spreadsheet, appropriate information from many students could be distributed. Imagine, for example, three different classes from three different schools collaborating on a shared project.

This was very interesting to read and to watch. This notion of creativity being a way of operating has implications for the importance of fostering creativity in the classroom. By teaching to dotpoints and not giving students the chance to think freely and creatively, we limit them to only one way of operating, only one way of looking at a problem. Not only did reading this provide me with some perspective on how to create an environment that would allow students to feel that they could be creative, but also highlighted further the importance of it. Also, John Cleese. ♥

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! | Edutopia.org | Art in Teaching | Scoop.it

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

 

However, many teachers don't know how to implement the teaching and assessment of creativity in their classrooms. While we may have the tools to teach and assess content, creativity is another matter, especially if we want to be intentional about teaching it as a 21st-century skill. In a PBL project, some teachers focus on just one skill, while others focus on many. Here are some strategies educators can use tomorrow to get started teaching and assessing creativity -- just one more highly necessary skill in that 21st-century toolkit.

Brittany Anne Garcia's insight:

I have reviwed what they have said and think that this would be a great idea when trying to teach kids. Because it has color in the wheel i feel that has more of a connection with kids because they are attracted to color. I think this a great idea and i do plan on using this in my classroom when i start teaching. You could use this idea for a bunch of things.

Brittany Anne Garcia's insight:

As the article states " Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence." this is a great qoute because art does take you to another place of slef expression and being able to express your self and forget all the troubles in the world. Children need this as an outlet i feel.

We need to make more time for the arts. If the schools won't do it parents should. Kids are creative they just need somewhere to channel it.

Brittany Anne Garcia's insight:

I like what this article has to say. Creating helps make people happier, less anxious, more resilient and better equipped to problem solving in a face of hardship. Teaching children how to do art outside of the classroom can really help them with stress. I know working with children and doing something that can help their creative side flow. I think this is a great idea.
