Developing a Creative Curriculum
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.”
