Some still relegate creativity to art class, but many educators look for ways to engage creative thinking in the mainstream classroom day in and day out. This isn’t easy when days are packed with scope and sequence, standards, needs for differentiated instruction and more. However, working with educators across the U.S. and Canada, we’ve seen marvelous examples of teachers providing students with the priceless gift of exercising their creative problem-solving skills.
Creativity can be developed and taught, but students often need a process or method to provide the framework for thinking in new and original ways. How do we help students practice creativity?
At LEGO Education, we believe that today’s students must be prepared for a dynamic, demanding future full of unforeseen opportunities. We work to provide solutions, powered by LEGO bricks, to help students develop creative problem-solving skills. LEGO bricks offer a canvas for “practicing” problem-solving. We believe students who have practiced and honed their problem-solving skills are better equipped for virtually any endeavor; they can skillfully apply learned knowledge in a variety of contexts or situations.
For a real world look at how students are learning and using creativity in the classroom, check out this news video from Wake County in Raleigh, North Carolina.
