One of the best parts of my day is checking in on Media Specialist/Teacher Librarian Laura Fleming as she always shares the incredible work her students are doing in the makerspace she created at New Milford High School.
When schools nurture student creativity, they foster inquisitiveness, persistence, imagination, discipline, and collaboration, leading to improved classroom behavior, motivation, attendance, and academic attainment.
Not only does project based learning motivate students because it is an authentic use of technology, it facilitates active learning, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. Projects begin with a driving question–an open-ended question that sets the stage for the project by creating interest and curiosity.
Creative Schools looks to people who are already revolutionizing education for examples of how creativity can flourish despite the framework of standardization: the teachers who are making better use of lesson time by redefining homework; the schools which have pioneered projects and partnerships to bring to life the practical aspects of learning, from building real cars to managing their own towns.
I had the privilege this past week of participating in a session focussed on the new Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship (I.C.E.) pilot that complements the Specialist High Skills Major Program.
