Connecting Creativity: The Background

PLAEA instructional technology consultants Leslie Pralle Keehn and Erin Olson designed Connecting Creativity Series with concept and content convergence in mind, supported by meaningful technology integration. Each Connecting Creativity monthly concept is designed so teachers can repurpose the idea to meet the needs of their students, the needs of their curriculum goals, and the demands of the Core. The class will offer support for implementation and integration of the Connecting Creativity monthly quests. At the center of each monthly experience: students create/design, students write, and students publish.
