Creativity isn’t a trait that only special people are gifted. It’s a skill set, and it’s adaptable over time.
If you’ve ever said, “Well, I’m just not one of those creative types,” then we have good news for you!
We hear lots of talk about classroom creativity, and much of it centers on developing creativity in students. This is very valid, as creativity can elevate lots of crucial academic skills.
But teachers get to be creative, too!
When teachers flex and build their creativity muscles, students benefit. The creative lessons produced by those teachers impact the students. But they also demonstrate to the students that the teacher is willing to take some creative risks, too.
The result: A culture of creativity begins to bloom.
How do we do it, though? Where do we start? What does it look like?
Thankfully, there’s a masterclass in teacher and student creativity. And it’s FREE.
The Creativity for All online course is a one-hour course that’s part of the Adobe Education Exchange. In it, you’ll find …
- Several 5- to 7-minute videos to demonstrate key concepts
- Classroom inspiration ideas to plug in your classroom
- Educator insights from creative educators doing the work
- A library of distance learning resources
- Dozens of educator-created creativity projects to browse
- Online collaboration groups
