Creative Actions

Creative Actions: Embedding creative competencies in every classroom  

The human capacity for creativity - the ability to conceive, analyse and develop new and effective solutions to problems in every aspect of our lives – is now an essential part of global education. In these workshops we explain how schools and teachers can, through sustainable, incremental change, integrate creativity into their curriculum to meet the demands of the 21st century. We illustrate theories with practical examples of creativity in action from classrooms around the world, providing evidence that creativity can, and must, be embedded in the Future of Education. We help teachers and school leaders build their creative capacities and those of their students. Our student workshops provide students with a toolkit of creativity to build their skills as independent learners.

Key takeaways:

  • Creativity is a science. Creativity can be taught learned and assessed
  • Components of creativity can positively impact academic outcomes
  • Creativity is critical to student metacognition, wellbeing, and development
  • Creativity is different in each subject and best integrated at the subject level
