Creativity and Education Futures: Learning in a Digital Age
Craft, Anna
Trentham Books Ltd
What is the future of education when the possibilities that exist for children change and advance so rapidly and are so uncertain? Where learning occurs as naturally in a Web 2.0 environment as in the playground, playing field, front room or street? Where adults may still be playing and experimenting far beyond their childhood in ways we could never have imagined even thirty years ago? Where creativity is increasingly possible for young people and increasingly expected of them? Drawing on the ideas of wise creativity and "collective possibility thinking", Anna Craft explores the changing nature of childhood and youth and asks how education might need to change in response. It discusses approaches to constructing imaginative educational futures which hear all voices: those of students, parents and educational professionals. "Creativity and Education Futures" is for everyone who is grappling with the messy and difficult task of transforming education, including those developing approaches to creative partnership.
