Six Essentials to Foster Creativity and Innovation in the Classroom: NETS 1a - 0 views

    In this web article, Peter H. Reynolds explains his enthusiasm for ISTE's emphasis on creativity in the classroom through technology. In order to help teachers integrate this standard into their classrooms, Reynolds offers six tips to take the standard out of the realm of theory and into actual practice. His strongest recommendation is to use blank-page software in which the student have some control over the content that they experience. His next suggestion is to buy graphics tablets and pens to use with the computers so that students can input their artwork directly into the pc. His next three ideas, giving time and freedom, and making sure that students develop a mission in their work, and ensuring that students feel and express love, should be common practice in the classroom now, but Reynold's acknowledges that they are absolute essentials for creativity. His final suggestion is that teachers use strong leadership skills to take control of their classrooms and engineer a creative environment.
