School and Creativity
Watch the video, Ken Robinson Says Schools Kill Creativity.
Sir Ken Robinson suggests that our schools are killing creativity. To what extent do you agree or disagree? Do you think the focus on 21st century skills will refocus the priority in schools away from solely mastering discrete skills? If it did, would this be a positive improvement in our education system? Would it lead to more opportunities for students to be creative? Explain your thinking.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates. In your response, discuss what aspects of an effective, motivating classroom environment can increase the opportunities for students to be creative in the classroom. Be sure also to respond to any questions that your instructor might pose. This discussion post will continue into Week Three.
