Webinar: Cultivating Student Choice Through the Creative Process

January 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

1PD Credit
Student- centered learning is not enough, students should be driving the curriculum for themselves in a full embrace of the creative process. This presentation provides specific and practical information, along with shared experiences that seek to teach students how to learn for themselves, to build meaning from their own lives and a curious culture, processed through imagination, metacognition, and the entire creative process. Creativity can be taught. Teachers of all content areas and students will come to view curriculum creation as an artwork in itself. We will work through the framework of the creative process, talk about priming your classroom culture for these experiences of meaning through curiosity, building domain skills, and then moving through the step by step processes and exploration I use in a collaborative environment built on trust, empathy, and excitement. How do we manifest metacognition? Why is creativity the Big Intelligence that is at the center of everything we say we want for students? Let’s answer these questions.

Presenter: Chris Sykora
