If I had the opportunity to ask all the teachers (and prospective teachers) I know one question it would be “what does creativity mean to you?” Last year I had a class on creativity and imagination in the curriculum and I must admit it has completely transformed the way I see myself as both a teacher and a learner. I feel sad for other student teachers who were not fortunate enough to take this elective because I think at the end of the day creativity is one of the essential elements to being human. As teachers we need to recognise that if we want students to be creative, act creative, and think creative, we must first understand what these things mean.
This is a topic that continues to inspire and change my thinking and something I hope to write about further in the future
