Teachers Are the Key to Student Creativity
It’s no secret that the world is changing. What was once a corporate ladder is now a maze. The bad news is the rules have changed. The good news? Our students get to rewrite those rules. But in this world of rapid change, our students will need to be creative thinkers and problem-solvers. And you get to help make that a reality.
As the teacher, you are the architect who can design the learning experiences that students remember for a lifetime. But epic projects require structures and strategies. If the goal is to empower students, the learning process is project-based learning, the creative process is design thinking, the space is a maker space (not just in STEM but a creative space for all subjects) and the mindset is vintage innovation.
My goal is not to tell you how to teach. You know your students best. You know the subject better than anyone else. You are the architect who can unleash the creative potential in all of your students so they can grow into the makers, designers, artists, and engineers who change the world. You are the architect designing the systems, experiences, and projects to make this a reality.
But architects need tools and that’s why I share the ideas and resources you might want to use as you design epic projects for your students.
