We should be working towards this future; it is a reasonable extrapolation from known research and technology usage. The alternative will be disengaging for students and demeaning for teachers. It should be noted that the known attributes of great teachers are required in this model.

When Trying Harder Doesn’t Help

When Trying Harder Doesn’t Help | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

The worst thing forward-facing leaders face is not making progress – feeling stuck. The solution for most is trying harder. Stepping on the gas feels right, but it’s wrong.....

Allan Shaw's insight:

When you are stuck don't balme others or the situation. 'If you persistently feel stuck, who’s responsible? You’ll stay stuck until you change.' There is wisdom in knowing when circumstance dictates a new approach.

IPad Teaching and Learning

IPad Teaching and Learning | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it

`Beginning in our next school year, we are very excited to implement iPads (iPad2 devices) as a tool for collaborative learning in our English and Media faculty. We believe that the technology can enhance our pedagogy, whilst engaging our students in the basics of reading, writing and speaking & listening. We believe that the devices can harness excitement and confidence in our students, unleashing greater creativity and raising literacy standards. By using Apple TV, we will use the devices as a tool for formative assessment, immediately streaming student responses, writing, annotation or presentations and films etc. We are not going for the 1-to-1 model, instead the device will be used as a collaborative tool in groups. A class set will effectively be 7 to 8 iPads.``

How schools kill creativity

How schools kill creativity | digital creativity in education | Scoop.it
Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.
Allan Shaw's insight:

Sir Ken Robinson would suggest that all children, indeed humans are born creative and our school systems manage to stifle it.

The history of schooling unfortunately suggests this result is a direct, in unintended consequence of the goals of schools. Schools were set up to teach young people to read and write, undertake basic maths and given the size of classes, learn to work in 'the system'. School had right and wrong answers and students were rewarded for correct answers. They still are rewarded for correct answers. School is a systems technology designed to achieve certain goals.

Creativity is not often convergent thinking; it is more often divergent thinking, looking for possibilities. It is what young children do naturally. It is fun to play with ideas and they enjoy it, as do I.

This is quite different to knowing how to implement an idea, to make it a reality. That is much harder work and requires many other skills and knowledge. It is easy to mistake creativity with ideas and successful implementation. One might lead to the other but they are different processes.

I want schooling to adapt so that it can manage to nurture student knowledge and skills with one of those skills being able to use with confidence both convergent and divergent thinking and then use other skills to make a creative idea a reality.
