Unleash Your SuperPower!

Preparing for Tech Visits



Trying new approaches to get things done equals innovation & invention

When designing a lesson with creativity and innovation remember there are many strategies that you already use that just need a digital tool where students are creating their own idea. What is Creativity & Innovation?

  • Use a wide range of idea creation techniques (such as brainstorming).

  • Create new and worthwhile ideas (both incremental and radical concepts).

  • Elaborate, refine, analyze and evaluate their own ideas in order to improve and maximize creative efforts.

Creativity is closely intertwined with some of the other skills previously identified. Innovation today has a social component and requires adaptability, leadership, teamwork, and interpersonal skills. Increasingly, today the capacity to innovate is linked to the ability to connect with others and with a facility for communication and collaboration.
