Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 20, 10:16 PM

Today many of our students are consumers, yet Common Core would like them to be more creative. What can we do as teachers to help our students become more creative? 

This post begins with an exploration of research that has taken place in this area. Below is one quote from the post.

“Understanding, identifying, and nurturing the creative potential is relevant in education if we want students able to solve academic and personal problems and challenges, to find innovative solutions and alternatives, and to have better tools and resources for success in a fast-changing world...”
The post provides 15 suggestions that you might want to incorporate into your classroom. Three are below. Click through to the post to find all fifteen plus additional information.

* Begin and end each class period with a creation. 

* Require students to create products for other students.

* Welcome mistakes

Lisa Norris's curator insight, September 21, 8:26 PM

Love this one!

Affirmation-the inquiry process (which includes creativity and so many other HOT skills) is so important even for our youngest learners.  It's so important they work through the process and create something to show their learning at the end!  It may be a challenge, but the risk is worth it!

 

Let's not forget...Creativity=important leadership quality!

What is described in this article are teams. That is OK in the right setting and context. Communities form organically. They are quite messy as opposed to teams which have a more rigid, linear structure. It does not mean teams are not messy, but the are different than communities. This applies in School where the more accurate term for professional learning communities would be professional learning teams. Even this falls short of what I experienced in School.

For most educators, back-to-school decorations still include the proverbial apple, school bus, writing strips, and black and white composition notebooks. We definitely need a revamp in the bulletin board market to bring it into this century. We’ve yet to see tablets to add to the decor. That said, one of the most useful, iconic, and versatile images in education is the pencil.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 20, 2:37 PM

I like the idea of being able to insert questions and comments into videos that will be used with students, either large group or individual. It provides for formative quick checks to ensure students are on track and can generate discussions amongst groups or with the whole class. I also think that, giving students this option, they could create reactions by asking questions and direct their own learning through adding questions or comments to what they are viewing.

"Stories have captivated us as a species since the dawn of man. Through stories, we have passed on traditions, remembered the past, and carried information across the millennia. 

And it's not just our ancestors who harnessed the power of stories, either. Stories still work to reach people, which is why we see businesses turning to the power of storytelling in branding efforts, marketing campaigns, corporate strategies, and even eLearning courses and business presentations."

Do you work with older students? Then you will enjoy this article about storytelling in learning. Great for introducing studnets to the need to structure online presentations as well as traditional, writing tasks.


Reading a good online presentation (from TED maybe) and then asking students to map the presentation to the story outline in this article will reinforce this learning for them.


Let me know if you give this a go - I've done similar activities with videos and story structures in primary schools and the students loved investigating the hidden structure!
