Description

Bringing creativity into mainstream educational practice has become a mantra among educators. But what does creative practice in education really look like? Take a journey around the globe with educator and artist Robert Kelly to witness innovative creative practice in action, with examples from early childhood to post-secondary levels.

Through stories and real-life examples, discover the techniques of global leaders in creativity and design thinking, including India’s Riverside School, Denmark’s Kaospilots, and San Francisco’s Brightworks. Educating for Creativity provides a theoretical framework for creative practice and creative development alongside a practical exploration of how to make creativity in education work from pioneers in the field.
