October 25, 2013 § Leave a comment
PART ONE: What did you learn from the Grow Creativity article? How is that going to influence your creativity cases project?
Your creativity cases should reflect the NETS Creativity and Innovation:
One of the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) addresses creativity and innovation:
Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology.
a. apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes.
b. create original works as a means of personal or group expression.
c. use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues.
d. identify trends and forecast possibilities.
PART TWO: Creativity Cases
Using the creativity cases, you’ll be developing a better understanding of the ways that technology tools can support creativity for learning. You will be working on two cases that asks you to be creative as a teacher. If you would like to explore something on your own, you will have the option. You’ll have a chance to learn about mobile treasure hunts, flipped classrooms, and more. These are independent projects and each option has a written documentation piece to go along with it.
Each of the 2 cases you choose must be accompanied by written documentation (3-4 paragraphs, 200 words) that relates your project to the assigned readings (maker spaces, creativity definitions, Grow Creativity article.) Review each case description for details of what should be included.
Make Creativity Cases page on your portfolio. Add a description of each case you are doing and add a link to your product along with written documentation.
Remember you need to work on TWO cases. This assignment is due at the begigning of Wednesday, 10/30.
1. Work on your cases. You have two cases to complete. You should have at least one case completed by beginning of Monday’s class. Creativity cases are due at the beginning of Wednesday’s class.
2. Note that there will be no class meeting on next Wednesday. It is your 20% project independent work day.
