Recently as a staff we were asked to read the book Out of Our Minds by Sir Ken Robinson. I have to say the book supported the idea of keeping creativity in school, but also ignited the inspiration I needed to start to think more out of the box. I need to develop a shape for myself and how it will define me. Do I want to inspire others by my actions or try to be innovated in creating something so amazing for my staff.
I am also reading Reflective Educator's Guide which is assisting in developing a teacher inquiry question that I need to study this year. This is were the two books are colliding and forcing me to rethink how I have done things in the past! I will continue to build my skills by being a part of my online communities but also try to get staff members as my school to see the benefits of building a a creative network of online supporters!
What do you do to be creative?? How does that transfer in your instruction??
