Creativity. Some people think that either you just are a creative person, or you’re just not. The fact is, everyone can increase their creativity. With iPad, we have the tools to help students not only increase their creativity, but also their awareness of the creative process. This workshop will explore the importance of creativity in the classroom, as well as ways to use the iPad to inspire student creativity. Participants will hear about strategies used in our middle school, across content areas and grade levels, to encourage our students to explore their creative sides. During the workshop, we will share a variety of student projects including movies, iBooks, websites, infographics and posters, as well as describe the scaffolding used to help students develop their creative capacities. We also will discuss methods that we use to increase student metacognition about their creative process. By the end of this session, participants will get their creative juices flowing, and start exploring ideas for how to spark student creativity.
