Creativity on the Run: 18 Apps that Support the Creative Process

Creativity on the Run: 18 Apps that Support the Creative Process | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift." - Albert Einstein

 

We do not need to teach creativity, but rather inspire its daily practice. Somewhere along the way, we simply forgot to honor this innate gift and how to access its power. Our role as educators is to encourage learning experiences that increase the ability to recognize and listen to our inner voice.

"Together we can build ways to enhance rather than undermine creative thinking. No app, nor piece of technology, can produce this. It grows from the hearts, hands and guidance of a caring community."


Dr. Carl Rogers and Dr. Stephen Krashen research the conditions of safe, trusting and low stress learning environments. Dr. Paul Torrance life's work with his bench mark study on creativity, provided the base for which creativity teaching and learning approaches are developed in the 21st century learning environments.

 

I provide this type of learning environment in my Thai university classroom every time I teach...I try to produce the excitement of learning something new, functional knowledge, that can be applied in the "real  world".

 

I do not spoon feed the Thai students knowledge for rote learning but engage them to think,think,think (apply problem solving and inquiry based learning) and to play,play,play, (apply metacognitive and integrated task / project based learning to reinforce the deeper knowledge  and confidence gained in the learning experiences (in a fun way).

 

I truly learn as much from my students as they do from the learning experiences.

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.

What questions can we ask ourselves to assess our "pedagogical principles and instructional preferences"? Jackie Gerstein provides a list (and the list as a table as shown above) to help you reflect on your practice. As she states the process may be "simple but not easy." You may answer the question but how do you change your practice so that you may implement it in your classroom?

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, December 22, 2013 5:28 AM

This title of this post states “simple but not easy” because to answer the questions is simple.  I know that every good teacher would answer these questions in the direction of student-centric education; one that is in the best interests of the student.  But implementation is another thing.  To implement the non-maintstream alternative is not easy given the accountability systems, one’s own training and background, and mandated school initiatives.  It takes a strong, self-directed and courageous educator to do so.

For most children, the key to success will continue to be sharp critical skills, strong connections, effective communication and the nerve to be creative and entrepreneurial. The difference is that we are living at a time in which all of those skills are defined by one’s proficiency in connected media. Furthermore, for students facing poverty, violence and disability, online learning networks can provide empowering educational experiences that transcend the circumstances of the classroom.

 

Ultimately, the school that ignores the connection will be the school that we will identify as a failing institution. It is therefore even crueler that policymakers obsessed with standardized test results — like Ms. Rhee and her many disciples — ignore what the connection represents.

I used to think that schools that have smart students is in general a good school overall, but now i realised that even if u have smart students in the school if u do not connect to social media or have very little access to it, the school is counted as a failing institiution.
