What could be?: creativity in digitized classrooms

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

The question ‘What could be?’ in this article concerns how teachers might work in digitised classrooms to foster creativity. In the UK there are debates about how curriculum reform and technology might meet the future challenges of the network society, and education policies for creativity in schools focus on the benefits of individuals' creative experiences, as well as benefits to society and the economy in preparing participants in the creative and cultural industries. The discussion focuses on two themes: digital movies as tools for learning; and pedagogy for creativity, including improvisation and skilful neglect. The discussion is supported and illustrated by an account of Creativity and Teacher Education (CREATE), a four year project with student teachers working with digital video technologies in English Primary schools. The project enabled the student teachers to reflect on their own understandings of creativity and creative teaching, and informed the teacher educators in the research, design and development of the undergraduate BA (Qualified Teacher Status).
