The Paradox of Creativity in Education. All humans have the potential and ability to be creative, and we do ourselves a disservice when we refer to individuals such as Mozart and Einstein as the defining examples of creativity to which we should all strive to emulate.
This genius bar misrepresents the concept of creativity and distracts us from the necessary conversations on how to foster the creative mindset and why it’s so important to include in conversations around education. According to James Kaufman, a psychologist and researcher at the University of Connecticut who presented last week at the Partnership for 21st Century Skills Summit, creative people are more likely to get promoted, be satisfied with their jobs, be in better physical health and be more resilient. Those are all outcomes we hope for our children. Fostering creativity may have long-term positive benefits, so we should start focusing on creativity in the early years. How 2 schools use green screen iPad tools for authentic learning. Two schools are both alike in dignity.

Technology Coach Chris Loat shares his ideas on how Book Creator can be used effectively in the classroom.
Chris Loat has taught for 16 years between grades 2-7, and recently moved to the district board office in Richmond, Canada, as a teacher consultant for the integration of technology. Book Creator is a versatile and intuitively set-up app that allows students to easily create digital content in a variety of ways. In Richmond, teachers have used their iPads and Book Creator to publish ebooks on a variety of topics and in a variety of genres.
Below are some ideas for using Book Creator in your classroom. 1. Kirsten Wallace at Steves Elementary first taught a series of lessons on procedural writing to her grade 5 class. Each student wrote about this topic and explained the process with text, photos, audio recordings, and video. The next assignment was to explain the steps to their Science experiment for the annual district Science Jam event. 2. Sentence starters 3. 4. Pensée Design : libérez votre créativité ! Demain, faire la différence ne résidera que peu dans un parcours académique « classique », même renommé ou prestigieux, mais dans le développement de sa capacité à développer des idées créatives ; à trouver des solutions innovantes à des problématiques réelles ; à s’adapter en permanence à un monde qui change très vite ; à apprendre en autodidacte, et tout au long de la vie… La créativité est déjà une qualité reconnue et indéniable aujourd’hui, mais elle sera indispensable pour chacun d’entre nous demain, pas seulement à quelques-uns.
Mais rassurez-vous, la créativité n’est pas qu’un don, c’est aussi quelque chose qui se travaille, qui se muscle. J’avais du mal à y croire au début, mais je réalise aujourd’hui, après avoir beaucoup lu sur le sujet et m’être régulièrement exercé, que la créativité n’est pas réservée à un petit nombre d’élus. Tout le monde, même s’il part d’un niveau différent, peut largement progresser et parfois de façon spectaculaire… J’y ai assisté ! PBS Digital Studios. Digital Storytelling with an iPad.

How To Use 'App Smashing' In Education. If you are a teacher that uses an iPad, chances are that you are familiar with the following scenario.
You found this amazing app that can really help your struggling students. The potential of this app is great, as it appears that this particular app can tap your students’ creativity and allow them to thrive in ways that were unthinkable until now. The problem is that this app can only accomplish a small number of things, which prevents the students from completing a multidimensional project.
So what do you do now? Due to the unfortunate fact that there isn’t a “silver bullet app” yet- an app that can accomplish many, very different tasks- we have to rely on teachers’ and students’ creativity in order to accomplish multi-step tasks using the iPad. What is App Smashing? The basic premise behind app smashing, sometimes referred to as “app synergy”, is to find a number of key apps that “play well” with other apps and can communicate information across platforms.

See the original posting here. From quill and ink, to slate and chalk, to pencil and paper, to typewriter, to computer, to iPad…. each evolution of technology has allowed students to make their thinking visual, articulate their ideas, demonstrate their understanding of concepts and skills, collaborate with their peers, and communicate in complex and modern ways. Each advance has made it possible for those who master them to go a little further and to communicate a little more effectively. Historically, people who have taken the time to learn these technologies, or develop new ones, have reaped great rewards. Andrew Carnegie was “discovered” because of his ability to use the telegraph – the peak of communication at the time – to unravel a rail snarl that paralyzed his company.
Thomas Edison created a way for people to record themselves, and others, and share these messages widely.
