The Daily Routine Of Creativity - TeachThought

The Daily Routine Of Creativity - TeachThought | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
What sort of habits lead to creativity? Well, we first have to imagine these kinds of habits as causal–that is, the habits cause the creativity, rather than the reverse. If we can do that, there may be some useful takeaways for teachers.

Podio recently put together an interesting graphic that has some relevance for educators (if we can see teaching as a creative process). One general takeaway? The most creative go to bed early, and do their most creative work earlier in the day. In general, the routine for creativity–at least in its most general terms–is simple:

Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch

Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"When you are lucky enough to travel and visit with librarians all over the world, you realize the power and the talents of our community.

One thing is clear to me: as librarians, we haven’t yet leveraged our true power as global connectors.  Lately I’ve been thinking about our yet-to-be-realized opportunities and how we might realize them.

You see, I see convergence.

 

Never before have we had truly effective tools for synchronous conferencing and media-rich asynchronous group discussion. Never before have we been able to leverage our emerging online communities of practice.   Never before has participation been so possible.  Never before has our world been so flat. Never before has it be more obvious that the prefix geo might amplify themes in any curriculum.

 

 

One of the titles in Heidi Hayes Jacobs’ recent Contemporary Perspectives on Literacy series is Global Literacy.  This video introduction describes how the author/editor sees the intersection of three critical literacies: digital literacy, media literacy and global literacy"

6 Powerful Strategies For Deeper Learning In Your Classroom - Dr. M.R Martinez Te@chThought | Information Literacy | Scoop.it

"In my new book, “Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century,” I take you inside a growing movement that represents what should be the new normal. Deeper Learning is a set of student outcomes that includes mastery of essential academic content; thinking critically and solving complex problems; working collaboratively and communicating  effectively; having an academic mindset, and being self-directed.

 

This more robust and responsive educational experience offers a new framework for educators and schools to rise to the challenge of preparing students for college, careers, and the world today. The eight schools profiled in my book are embracing Deeper Learning principals with six core strategies."

"One of the most versatile and easiest-to-use platforms I’ve used over the past several years isThingLink.

 

I’ve used the interactive poster tagging tool to create and embed media-rich image maps, to annotate and evaluate the claims infographics make, as a portfolio and as a curation tool.

 

This summer, educator, consultant and ThingLink Education Community Manager, Susan Oxnevad invites educators to share their creativity and push the envelope with a ThingLink Teacher Challenge on a Google+ Community.

 

In her blog post, Susan explains the rationale for this free self-paced summer challenge:

 

This challenge invites teachers to learn to use interactive images to redefine learning in the classroom. Learn how to connect audio, video, images, and text in one cohesive presentation during this self-paced professional development opportunity. "
