Creating spaces in the primary curriculum: ICT in creative subjects

Avril Loveless

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article identifies recent frameworks for describing creativity as an interaction between people, processes, domains and the wider social and cultural context, and outlines some of the concerns and policies in education in the UK. The characteristics of creativity proposed by the National Advisory Committee on Creativity in Education (NACCE) are related to definitions of ICT capability in the English National Curriculum. A view of ICT capability is presented which interacts with creative processes and provides a framework for considering a number of illustrative cases within creative subjects in the primary curriculum. Some of the implications for development in the primary curriculum are then discussed.
