#ettsummit X Unleashing Creativity

In one of my favorite sessions of the day, I was able listen to +Shawn McCusker (@shawnmccusker) explore and navigate the concept of creativity in the classroom…my sketchnotes and critical take-aways as well.

  • Creativity > iPads
  • The Paradox of Creativity suggests that there is no formula for creativity that once can follow
  • When evaluating the amount of “creativity” in one’s classroom, evaluate the number of days that students are allowed to be creative.
  • Blooms Revised Taxonomy = creativity on top = summit to conquer = overlooking the potential for creativity in small places or the “base camps” along the way.
  • Creativity doesn’t have to be an exhausting event (bottom left of sketchnotes)
