Kicking off Season 5 of the Fueling Creativity in Education podcast, Dr. Cyndi Burnett and Dr. Matthew Worwood welcome Dr. Edward P. Clapp, a Principal Investigator at Project Zero. Edward explores creativity and innovation, design and maker-centered learning, contemporary approaches to arts teaching and learning, and diversity, equity, and inclusion in education.
Listen in as Edward shines a light on the power of participatory creativity, how to overcome the eight crises of creativity in education, and how to use “a biography of an idea” to tell the story behind an idea. He also discusses why it’s beneficial to remove individualism, or the ego, from the participatory creative process and specific strategies teachers can use to facilitate participatory creativity and collaboration in the classroom.
“The way that I define participatory creativity is uniquely contributing to the development of creative ideas within a particular social and cultural setting.” – Dr. Edward P. Clapp
Plus, you’ll gain insight into how to introduce access and equity to the creative classroom, how to overcome the potential pitfalls of participatory creativity, and when to push students beyond their comfort zone as opposed to just letting them be their best selves in the classroom.
