The Adventures of Library Girl: Libraries as Cultivators of Creativity: There's an App for That! http://t.co/vSUG6TXdZe By @jenniferlagarde
"...here some of my favorite APPs to help spark student creativity. If you're lucky to have access to mobile devices in your library, these would make some great additions to your APP collection. And if you don't have such access, they are worth exploring anyway - to consider what they provide students with the opportunity to do and then to think about how you can provide students with those same opportunities with or without a gadget."

- Draw Quest
- Art Set

"As librarians, we have an opportunity and an obligation to create spaces and instruction that cultivate our students' creativity. Our spaces, our flexibility and our skills make the library the perfect place to turn kids loose: to give them the chance to imagine, explore, create and share. Along the way, they'll make mistakes and plenty of messes, but that's how we all learn. We may not all have access to the APPs I've shared in this post, but we've all got access to something far more important: kids. All of whom are eager and ready to get started!"
