The themes covered by this paper were presented through a set of images, questions and commentary. This paper is therefore offered, not as an academic paper, but as annotations on elements of the visual presentation. The focus of the paper was the author's personal experiences as a teacher educator and researcher in drawing attention to the lack of space for creativity in the school-based curriculum, and how the initial sense of disquiet and disturbance was translated into thinking and action in our practice in the School of Education. The paper followed the trail, from early days of wonder and questioning, supported by a small community of like-minded people, to a research projectwith student teachers working in schools. The common thread through these experiences was the focus on the affordances of digital technologies for creative processes and activity.
