Description by Terry Eichholtz

 

"Creativity Games is a site that offers a weekly creativity game every Monday. There are also weekly challenges and resources offered. Although it seems to be aimed at an adult audience, I believe many of the ideas could be used with younger students as well. For example, I love the “New World Education Game” that was offered on August 20th. It challenges you to think of a new university course using the 4 words provided. As the “Strategy” paragraph states, our students are entering a new world with different technologies, and we need to come up with novel ideas for preparing them for this. I could see my gifted and talented students loving this idea, and many of the other activities on Creativity Games. This is a great tool for educators."

B Ritt Smetzer's curator insight, February 14, 2016 12:48 PM

This website was created by Ryan Chadwick, an IT teacher who has always been interested in how and why people learn the way they do. He loves to push himself and has come to realize that by having a creative mind he can do just that. He created this site to spread and develop creative thinking. The website gives the reader a step-by-step plan.  First you start with a weekly creative game that will challenge you to think in different ways.  Then you can check out their weekly learning resources and read up on many different topics, ideas and views.  Then you can take the weekly creativity challenge which challenges you to incorporate creativity into your everyday life.  This would be a fun weekly activity for a gifted learner or a teacher of the gifted.  It is very structured and involves stretching your brain in ways that you may never do on a daily basis. This site will inspire you to spread creativity, create new ideas and to just get those creative juices flowing. You may even choose to share your ideas and thoughts with friends, educators or other leaders in your community. I love the idea of this website and incorporating it into a classroom as a "brain break" activity would be extremely beneficial.

"This book takes its place alongside the unnerving, memorable, darkly funny family memoirs of Augusten Burroughs and Mary Karr. It's a father-daughter tale perfectly suited to the graphic memoir form.
