Developing a Creative Curriculum

Posted on June 19, 2017

Article By: Steve Padget

Developing a creative curriculum says some very important things about a school.  How the community, children and adults alike, articulate their ideas about learning and teaching, and how they see their school:

  • The leadership is inspirational.
  • The staff are flexible, creative and dynamic and share the vision.
  • The school views the process of learning as a creative act.

 

Other features of schools embracing a creative curriculum include the development of learning based collaborative approaches.  And the examination of ways to achieve the co-construction of enquiry based learning.  LVT is a tool that can contribute considerably to this. It gives students a setting to produce considerations combined with a methods for articulating and sharing thoughts visually. Fundamentally, LVT at that point enables students to take a look at the relationship between these ideas, which brings about giving a genuine chance for new understandings to happen.

“A very flexible tool which could be used in a variety of aspects in school.”
