Description - Creativity in Schools by Anna Craft
In this often well-resourced and imaginative era of education, creativity is often seen as closely linked with the marketplace. Individual and collective empowerment enabled by the development of creative skill, in the 'knowledge economy' is seen as a good thing. This book takes a sharp look at the global revolution in educational creativity, which since the 1990s has assumed increasing importance in schools across the world. What is 'creative learning' and how does it relate to 'creative teaching'? How is the curriculum organized to nurture creativity and what pedagogical strategies support it? How is creative learning different to effective learning? This book examines these and other important questions by: - setting out the key current debates within creativity - putting current approaches into a much broader perspective - delivering a practical approach to critical scrutiny in the creative classroom - laying out an agenda for teachers, policy-makers and researchers in better understanding. This is essential reading for all teachers and students with an interest in this key area in the future of education.
