Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship | Promote Creativity with Technology | Scoop.it
As you read this, students all over the country are sitting for state standardized exams. Schools spend up to 40% of the year on test prep, so that, shall we say, no child is left behind.
ohdesiderata's insight:

"Kids are more than just test scores." -- Indeed, they are, but the question then becomes, 'How do we measure things like their ability to take initiative for their learning, their ability to create, their ability to think outside the box, through standardised testing?' Well, you can't, especially when said tests consist of MCQs, giving students the chance to show their ability to answer, but not their ability to question or think deeply. This really explicates the problems with teaching to standardised tests -- we rob students of a genuine education in thinking beyond closed questions and towards deeper understanding of their world.

5 Fantastic Art Collections for Students to Explore Online

5 Fantastic Art Collections for Students to Explore Online | Promote Creativity with Technology | Scoop.it
A great set of resources to enable students to discover wonderful works of art online from galleries, art collections and museums around the world.

ohdesiderata's insight:

This is a great resource for exploring art within the classroom, no need to organise an excursion and worry about risk assessments! After studying The Hero of Little Street by Gregory Rogers last week, I have no doubt that this could be used to link the creative arts to literacy and enrich the learning experience of both.

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! | Edutopia.org | Promote Creativity with Technology | Scoop.it

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

 

However, many teachers don't know how to implement the teaching and assessment of creativity in their classrooms. While we may have the tools to teach and assess content, creativity is another matter, especially if we want to be intentional about teaching it as a 21st-century skill. In a PBL project, some teachers focus on just one skill, while others focus on many. Here are some strategies educators can use tomorrow to get started teaching and assessing creativity -- just one more highly necessary skill in that 21st-century toolkit.

As an art educator, albeit one without recent classroom experience these ideas look great for a range of ages from mid primary to mid secondary.

John Cleese on the 5 Factors to Make Your Life More Creative

'Creativity is not a talent.It is a way of operating.' Much has been said about how creativity works, its secrets, its origins, and what...

Via Susan Striepe
ohdesiderata's insight:

This was very interesting to read and to watch. This notion of creativity being a way of operating has implications for the importance of fostering creativity in the classroom. By teaching to dotpoints and not giving students the chance to think freely and creatively, we limit them to only one way of operating, only one way of looking at a problem. Not only did reading this provide me with some perspective on how to create an environment that would allow students to feel that they could be creative, but also highlighted further the importance of it. Also, John Cleese. ♥

A great article that provides tips on how to encourage students to become innovative. They are, in fact, things that all teachers should be doing in all classrooms, but to see it put into perspective in terms of creativity is helpful, particularly as it is also framed in terms of usefulness for the future.
