OECD educationtoday | Creativity in schools: what countries do (or could do)

OECD educationtoday | Creativity in schools: what countries do (or could do) | value education | Scoop.it

By Stephan Vincent-Lancrin

 

"The recent international OECD-CCE-Singapore workshop gave 30 education decision-makers from 12 countries the opportunity to share the lessons from Asian educational initiatives aiming to foster pupils’ creativity and critical thinking. While most of these initiatives build on project-based, research-based, and other active pedagogies, some start to use design thinking methods to scaffold the learning of innovation skills.

"Singapore and Korea are two good examples of countries emphasising creativity, critical thinking and character building in their curricula. Since 2009, Korea expects its schools to foster creativity as part of quality subject-based learning – but also to devote almost 10% of overall school time to projects and other transversal activities that foster creativity. As for Singapore, their “Desired Outcomes of Education” include critical and inventive thinking as well as social and emotional competences. At the end of secondary school, among other things students are expected to be “resilient in the face of adversity”, “innovative and enterprising” as well as “able to think critically and communicate persuasively”.

Sweet music!

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 1, 2014 10:47 AM


A bit of a edu-tisement for U.F. but this graphic has a ton of info points on music and it's value in learning.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:44 PM

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.
