Session 352: Creativity in Schools


With so much focus on results, targets and accountability, creativity in schools has reportedly receded to scarce levels whilst everyone focuses on passing exams and getting positive verdicts. But is this true? Do we need to shift our definition of creativity, and celebrate the creative ways that teachers enhance the teaching and learning process?

Following the popular UKEdChat online poll, the conversation this week will focus on questions around creativity in schools.

The questions below are aimed as a guide, but if you think that the session should focus on another aspect of creativity in schools, please scroll down and add your voice to the conversation by adding to the ‘comments’ box.

  1. How do *you* personally define creativity, and what is your main influence?
  2. Has creativity evolved in your school, and if so, how?
  3. How creative is your practice, and what do you focus on?
  4. Could a ‘creative curriculum’ design work across ALL key stages?
  5. How can school leaders support teachers to be creative in their subjects?
  6. Each and every subject has the opportunity to add creativity. What creative opportunities do you see in your subject area?
  7. What are the most creative approaches to T&L you have observed?
