Creativity in the Classroom and at Home
Unleashing creativity in the classroom and at home creativity is possible for everyone and not just a select few. In this webinar, we will explore creativity as the sum of content + style/preference + process + process skills + tools. The webinar will introduce participants to historical, cultural, and psychological perspectives on creativity. We will learn about how our problem solving preferences parallel the creative process and consider the implications in the classroom and at home. Participants will walk away empowered to take a risk and try something new.
