Creativity Through the Microcomputer.
Bass, George M., Jr.
The overall goals of an advanced education course at William and Mary College using microcomputers to stimulate student creativity are to present the necessary background about creativity as it has been studied by psychologists and educators, to introduce students to instructional strategies which may develop creativity, and, finally, to increase their own creative abilities. Many students and teachers are reluctant to use the computer because of its unfamiliarity; however, this course exploits the unfamiliarity to explore the capabilities of the computer and simultaneously teach creativity. Several microcomputer activities used in the class are described and the implications of such instruction are discussed. Seven references are listed. (RAA)
