Sir Ken Robinson: Fostering Creativity in Education is Not an Option ... | PLNs for ALL | Scoop.it
Innovative ideas - projects, processes, curricula, and more - that are transforming how we teach and learn. ... require a transformation in the way schools work. In his words, “Creativity is not an option, it's an absolute necessity.

Kevin Biles's insight:

Powerful message that challenges traditional instructional mindset and process for measuring.  Why are we testing one way but employers looking for students that are more collaborative and creative??

Justine Hughes's curator insight, January 15, 2013 5:12 AM

It would be a wise thing for anyone involved in education to take on board Sir Ken's thinking - it is sound and makes sense and may just help us to re-engage our students - and ourselves, perhaps.

eduPLEX's comment, January 26, 2013 12:10 AM
Totally agree with Ken, in every way. Students can put their own personal branding when they complete challenges using their creativity, and collaborating with their peers. www.eduplex.com.au

Characteristics of the Innovator's Mindset  | Innovation | CHANGE | GrowthMindSet | PLNs for ALL | Scoop.it

Recently I explored the notion of the “Innovator’s Mindset”, and have thought a lot about this idea.  As I look to write on the topic of “Leading Innovative Change” within schools, we are looking to develop educators as innovators.  To be innovative, you have to look at yourself as an innovator first, and to create schools that embody this mindset as a “culture”, we must develop this in individuals first.

Libraries are growing in great ways.  The development of makerspaces in libraries opens learning up to explore the varied means of UDL.  Exploration is the key!!
