Encouraging Creativity with Digital Technology in Early Primary Classrooms
Jones, Anthony
Australian Educational Computing, v19 n2 p8-11 Dec 2004
Australian schools are expected to integrate various uses of digital technology across all subject areas. In many schools the effectiveness of this has been questionable with little application to the development of student's creativity. This paper reports on a pilot study investigating children's creativity during computer-based activities. Examples of children's work from the early years of primary education are presented to illustrate some of the strategies employed by teachers from a government primary school. These examples focus on students working cooperatively to create simple multimedia products as part of either mathematics or SOSE. (Contains 3 figures.)
