I was asked to define creativity in my own words by the students of my Year 11 Design class without referring to the dictionary. I was completely stumped at how to make a sentence that made actual sense. My poor class just stared me as I mumbled and had my 'thinking' face on. Try put it in your own words! I would be interested to see what you write!

I was inspired while working on the Train the Trainer Course with the section looking at creativity. As I went through the various resources, I felt I could implement Brown's and Seelig's thoughts on creativity into my classroom with my students. I created 2-3 day lessons (90 minute blocks) for covering the information in the videos and classroom activities. The students had a good time and learned about play and how it can lead to creativity. Results for the activity have been included with this lesson. Enjoy! (note: instead of using finger rockets, I had the students make paper airplanes before we started the lesson)
I found an interesting article about how a decent noisy background improves creativity. Would like to share it and know if you agree http://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/665048?seq=1# i like an quiet environment and get my ideas in riding with my Mountain bike in the desert. But i see that many children really learn better with some noise in the background. May be its a question of character. Susanne

Can "creativity" be graded? If so, how do you grade a students "creativity" in an assignment? If not, why? Let's Talk!
In the hopes that this will inspire you to support creativity in education, I wrote my pledge on a whiteboard and challenged myself to fill the board with pictures, at least some of which told a bit of a story or related to stories I know. I hope you enjoy it. This is released into the public domain; if you'd like to use it for anything, feel free.
The following activities are a part of a 3 hour workshop I teach for K-12 educators. The goal of the workshop is for them to investigate successful practices for fostering creativity in the classroom and create projects to both awaken their inner creativity and create exemplars for use with their students! iPad apps used in the workshop are Adobe Slate, Adobe Voice, Adobe Photoshop Sketch, Adobe Photoshop Mix, Adobe Capture, Adobe Photoshop Fix, Adobe Premiere Clip, Adobe Post (iPhone app), Celtx Shots, Popplet Lite, Grid Diary, and Canva. Project 1: Adobe Slate Web PageApp: Adobe Slate Have students visit a designated blog post or have them pick one of their own related to the content being studied. Save images from the blog page to your iOS device. Don't forget to save the URLs to the images for citing.Open Slate and sign-in with your Adobe ID.Create your Slate by cut-and-pasting the text from the blog post and inserting the downloaded images.Add additional Creative Commons images if you wish and cite them.Add links to any items for file formats that will not show up in Slate.Put your name on the Slate.Post the URL of the completed Slate to a Padlet page for sharing with the class. Project 2: Adobe Voice Persuasion ProjectApps: Popplet, Adobe Voice Think about an issue you are passionate about.Open Popplet and start your concept map with your issue in the middle.Conduct research on your topic and grab at least 6 CC-licensed images and add images/URLs to Popplet to create your storyboard.Write your short script in PoppletOpen Adobe Voice and sign in with your Adobe ID.Create a new story. Pick the template “Make Up My Own” or “Promote an Idea”.Add your images, record your voice, and add music if you wish. Include the URLs to the assets and information on a separate slide. Publish your project to the Adobe Voice site.Add the URL to your posted proejct to a note on a Padlet page. Include your name or initials in the note. Project 3: Motivational PosterApps: Adobe Photoshop Mix, Adobe Photoshop Fix, Adobe Post You are going to create a motivational poster for your classroom. Search for a motivational quote or phrase to use for your poster. Copy the URL of the quote for citing.Find a Creative Commons licensed image, take a photo, or pick one in your camera roll to use as the background.Using Adobe Photoshop Mix and Photoshop Fix, enhance, crop, or fix your image,Open Adobe Post, import your image, pick a theme, and add the quote text to the image.Save the completed Adobe Post image to your camera roll.Attach the image from your iPad to a Padlet note with your initials.
I've created this ru'bric for creative projects that students in my Visual Design and Imaging program create allowing more formative feedback for the creativity aspect of it with the addition of reflection questions at the end for students to reflect on their finished work.
Students (and their teachers) love Adobe Spark and its ability to create beautiful videos, web stories, and graphics. The apps are fun, engaging, and actively encourage creative expression. Adobe Spark is incredibly easy to learn, so formal instruction and training is rarely needed. What educators do ask for, however, is guidance on how Spark can, and should, be used in the classroom. Over the past couple of years, Adobe educators have been conducting in-school and online professional development focused on creativity, digital storytelling, and the role that Adobe Spark plays in supporting the same. This kit is the culmination of these efforts. It contains everything you need to host your own productive and informative in-school PD session.

Australian Adobe Education Leaders share their top tips for student creativity
Over the course of this year I have been attempting to build my skills in a range of Adobe programs (particularly Photoshop and After Effects). I have given myself a task using the restriction method where I must create as many new animations as possible using the same source material. Each animation must be based around the image you see here (or some derivative of it) - an emblem of sorts that I have created for myself. The animations must also perform a perfect loop so that they can be saved as GIFs. Although not a specific restriction I have also been endeavouring to keep file size small given the nature and use of GIFs. Skills in programs like Photoshop and After Effects are like muscles in the body - if you exercise them they will grow and strengthen and if not you will begin to lose the ability to do things you once found simple. This exercise has been a great boon for me in terms of my own skills and my creative thinking and problem solving - I can only imagine what students would get out of it. I look forward to implementing this as a project with one of my classes in the future. It would be great as a weekly or fortnightly task covering the entire year. I can only imagine the sort of creative boost students could get from this. Obviously you could easily change it away from animation to anything else - the restriction and the repetition are the important factors. This link features a pretty great explanation of the restriction method and some of its benefits. I've also included links to some of the GIF self portraits and GIF CMYK self portraits I made as part of this task - see below.
We are ALL creative! This session is meant as a tool to bring creativity into the classroom.

Our current world is evolving more rapidly than the capacity of any existing education system. The challenge of learning is getting even harder for the next generations. We do not have a prediction of how tomorrow will look like, but we know that flexible process models are able to face the changes comparing with fixed-style models; we know that the ability to adapt helped our ancestors to survive on this planet for about six million years. This leads us to the question; what is the most important skill to teach our kids in schools? The answer: How to build creative and innovative minds that can adapt and face future unpredictable challenges. Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page provide successful examples of how adopting innovation in education can help in building creativity and better abilities in order to solve problems. In this article, I try to explore the different actions that can be taken during class sessions to improve creativity and innovation for both young and adult learners.
