29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

29 Ways to Raise Creative Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Fostering creative thinking inside our classrooms is one of the essential goals of our teaching. Ask any teacher today about what they want their students to develop and creativity will definitely be featured in their answers. Creativity is also a process that follows a thinking path, one that is inquisitive and noisy.  Saying that it is a process implies that it is learnable but it is not learned in the same rigorous way other thinking skills are learned.

Mind Mapping: Online Collaboration Tool

Mind Mapping: Online Collaboration Tool | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Although this article focuses on education, mindmapping can be a great planning and coordination tool for any kind of group project, whether collaborators are physically copresent or geographically separated. -- Howard

 

"Online collaboration has become very popular in both education and business. We now have the ability to easily and freely share all file types using different cloud based platforms. People working collectively on a project or assignment no longer need to be in the same room or even in the same country for that matter.

Collaborative platforms have enabled educators to create online learning environments where students can benefit from sharing ideas and communicating with each other, their mentors and external organizations."

A non-voluntary job change is hard. Returning to zero means creating a new identity around competency and calling, a set of possibilities, rather than a title on a business card.

Lots of fodder for discussion here. We are all creators, meant to create, so combining creativity with every single aspect of our lives, including literacy, is hugely important.

On assessing for creativity: yes you can, and yes you should

On assessing for creativity: yes you can, and yes you should | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"I tweeted yesterday an interesting news item in Erik Robelen’s blog in Education Week that a few states (Oklahoma, California, Massachusetts) are seriously looking into some sort of assessment of creative thinking as part of the whole 21st century skills/entrepreneurship movement. I think it is a great idea, with a lot of potential for leveraging change.

Now, of course, the naysayers are quick to say that you cannot measure creative thinking. This is silly: here is a rubric for doing so..."
