COURSE DESCRIPTION: Creativity in the Classroom and Different Ways of Displaying It
Boost Your Creativity
Learn how you can help your learners build their creative potential! Creativity in the classroom course focuses on the ways and strategies teachers can use to make the classes more interesting to students. It’s getting more and more challenging to be a teacher and educator in the 21st century. For that reason, teachers have to make a great effort to constantly refresh methods of teaching and increasing creativity in classroom activities.
Stimulate Student’s Imagination
Creativity develops innovation, and innovation happens when we nurture imagination which is stimulated through storytelling and drama. Participants are going to learn how to use these powerful techniques to create a motivating and fun environment in their classrooms. Studies have shown that learning is more effective when it is acquired through games. This is why we prepared workshops focused on game based learning. If you enjoy these, your students will too. Not all classrooms have digital tools available so we have created a course that uses a variety of activities and tools which can be performed with or without technology.
