Supporting Innovation
World is changing very rapidly. Most institutions look nothing like they did 50 years ago. Learning alone, working alone and thinking alone is becoming out-dated. Innovation, creativity and collaboration is becoming the culture of a new working environment. Are we prepared for this change?

Part 4… Creativity In The Digital Classroom… Amazing Web Sites... Are They In Your School?

Part 4… Creativity In The Digital Classroom… Amazing Web Sites... Are They In Your School? | Supporting Innovation | Scoop.it

“So many times we encourage students to be creative, but we don’t always provide an explanation nor assessment. I think it is important to provide a definition. You can see that Dictionary.com defines creativity as ‘the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts’.”

This is the last in a series of posts on Creativity in the Classroom, with a focus on websites that help promote creativity. Included in this post are:

* Arts Edge, a wonderful source from the Kennedy Arts Center that "offers free, standards-based teaching materials for use in and out of the classroom. It also offers professional development resources, student materials, and guidelines for arts-based instruction and assessment."

* Exploratorium - "a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker"

* Google Lit Trips - a great way to explore literature and Google Earth

* Odyssey of the Mind - "an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college."

* Diffen - a website that allows you to compare anything

An additional ten websites are listed that provide a range of online learning opportunities that help promote creativity!
