Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity - Tim Kitchen March 16, 2015 - Melbourne

Posted on Mar 11, 2015 by Tim Kitchen Last Activity on Mar 17, 2015

This post features the recording of Dr Tim Kitchen's presentation in Melbourne on March 16 titled - Creativity in Education is no longer an option, it’s an absolute necessity. Abstract From an industrial society to a knowledge based society and now to a creative society. This presentation challenges teachers and school administrators to keep up with societies changes or risk being irrelevant in the 21st Century. Numeracy and literacy skills are important but not at the expense of creativity, collab-oration and communication skills. The role of the 21st century teacher is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of tools that interconnect to help students construct learning and be creative. Sir Ken Robinson says, “Creativity for me is not an option, it is an absolute necessity.” This presentation looks at some of the research surrounding the importance... Read More

Erik Natzke: The Creative Application of Education

Posted on Mar 5, 2015 by Adobe Education Last Activity on Mar 15, 2015

Watch this recorded presentation by artist Erik Natzke from the Adobe Education Leader 2014 Summer Institute.  Einstein famously said, “Knowledge is limited; but imagination encircles the world.” The knowledge we acquire does empower us. But it isn’t until we find new and imaginative ways to apply this knowledge, that we begin to evolve ourselves. The mechanisms for acquiring knowledge and applying creativity are generally in conflict with one another. One is the systematic absorption of information and the other is a mode of play that often disrupts our progress to shake out discovery and gain a greater understanding of the known body of knowledge. The real trick comes when you can complete the loop and have play inspire learning and vice versa.

Introduction to Adobe Captivate

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Mark DuBois Last Activity on Mar 10, 2015

I created this video presentation on the fundamentals of Adobe Captivate for the Train the Trainer course. This was developed to introduce Adobe Captivate to teachers at any grade level who might want to learn more about this tool (and how it can be employed in their classes).  I thought others might benefit from this as well. I realize it is a bit long (but there are lots of things you can do with Adobe Captivate).

Creative Digital Photography

Posted on Feb 17, 2015 by Ross Wallis Last Activity on Feb 18, 2015

This is a slide show presentation of work by my students and myself, mostly using smartphones and tablet computers. There is an extraordinary revolution happening in photography, perhaps the biggest upheaval since it's invention two centuries ago. If I had asked my class 10 years ago how many had a camera, I might have had a few raised hands. Now everyone will have a camera, and they will have it with them all the time. Combining a pretty decent camera with a very powerful computer and some amazingly creative apps, this has simply got to be revolutionary. Click here for the presentation.
