101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative - TeachThought | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Creativity isn’t always something that just happens. It can take quite a bit of work to nurture, grow, and develop creativity, even for those who are immersed in creative and dynamic fields.

For educators, it can be even more of a challenge to inspire creativity in students or embrace your own creativity while trying to juggle academic requirements, testing, and other issues in the classroom. It may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible, and accomplishing it can help to create a classroom environment that’s more motivational, interesting, and educational for both you and your students.

So how do you get there? Here are some tips that can help you get creative in the classroom in a variety of ways.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, February 23, 2015 2:45 AM

Students have a particular liking for badges which they can flaunt to others. A badge is like a special privilege that all can see. I earned my badge after completing a MOOC session, although whether I will wear this badge is doubtful, but then for students at least it is about making the reward more attractive than just a certificate which will be put away in a folder or portfolio once it has been earned!

Don’t Assume Difficult Question Automatically Lead to Higher-Order Thinking | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
They’re the kind of questions that promote thinking and result in sophisticated intellectual development. They’re the kind of questions teachers aspire to ask students, but, according to research, these types of questions aren't the typical ones found on most course exams. Part of the disconnect between these aspirations and the actualities results from the difficulty of writing questions that test higher-order thinking skills.

Art and creative expression have an interesting way of weaving in and out of classrooms, offering students the opportunity to explore their own ideas and minds. Video games are no different, and while most of the discussion about their use in classrooms centers on play, the benefits of designing games in the classroom can extend far beyond entertainment and even programming.

What we need to do is begin with a pedagogic creed, similar to Dewey and work from there. The creed represents the touchstone we can use to make sure our motto continues to evolve and grow in our work.

How Maker Culture Builds Stronger Learning Communities - Edutopia

How Maker Culture Builds Stronger Learning Communities - Edutopia | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
When a new school opens its doors, where does the culture come from? What makes a school feel special to those who spend time there? How do you transform a physical space into a community of learners?

Answers to those challenging questions are emerging from Science Leadership Academy at Beeber, a public high school that opened in Philadelphia at the start of the 2013-14 school year. SLA@Beeber shares the inquiry-driven, project-based model that has distinguished the widely acclaimed SLA-Center City since it launched in 2006. The new campus is organized around the same core values -- inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation, and reflection -- that have enabled SLA students and staff to thrive.
