Why do we need more creativity in learning?

When schools place creativity at the heart of learning, students thrive. Students in creative classrooms show increases in critical skills.

Apple Professional Learning Specialists are educators who have been inspired by the creativity of their students. They coach and mentor educators in combining powerful pedagogies with simple, flexible and reliable technologies to engage students in creative learning.

The Gallup Creativity in Learning report highlights the importance of understanding the value of creativity in learning and how to enable it in the classroom by leveraging the full potential of technology.

Eighty-seven percent of teachers and 77% of parents agree that teaching approaches that inspire creativity in the learning process have a bigger payoff for students. Yet, students spend most of their time on traditional lessons that do little to encourage creativity, even though the growing availability of technology promises new ways of learning.
