Igniting students creativity create win-win opportunities in classrooms. When students are given the opportunity to apply their learning in the service of creativity and innovation their engagement is increased and their learning deepened. The ability to think creatively is innate in all learners - unlocking that potential requires five keys - opportunity, quality thinking, fluency, flexibility, and time. During this workshop Garfield will bring clarity to the concept of creativity and will provide practical examples, tools and strategies that support the nurturing of one of the key global competencies that has the potential to both enrich and engage students in learning. By framing assessments that invite creative responses and building students capacity to think both critically and creatively teachers can ignite students passion for learning while building their capacity to develop thoughtful and innovative solution to issues and problems facing society. Harnessing the potential offered through teaching for creativity support future-oriented learning helping to ensure that students find school interesting, relevant and rewarding.
