Creativity is not art. It is a mindset that impacts both social and emotional well-being and problem-solving for teachers. Creativity can be developed; it is not inherited. Thus, a teacher with a creative mindset approaches challenges of the school structure differently and approaches challenges displayed by students differently. A teacher with a creative mindset develops a teaching style that imbues this mindset in their students and provides students with creative tools. Thus, the creative teacher creates a positive feedback loop and can impact outcomes.
During this edWebinar, attendees will:
- Review what creativity is and what it looks like in the classroom
- Explore a framework to use to understand the principles
- Discover the interplay of creativity to SEL and STEM
- Learn about tools that are accessible to classroom teachers to develop creativity skills
This edWebinar will be of interest to preK-12 teachers, school and district leaders, librarians, STEM teachers and coaches, and curriculum directors. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
