Click into Your Creative Classroom
Let us help you to empower your pupils to open up a world of opportunities through the development of 21st century skills. Research from The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030 highlights the importance of higher-order skills such as originality, fluency of ideas and problem solving, all of which map to creativity in the classroom and beyond.
We’re here to support you and your pupils to click in to greater creativity in the classroom, all while meeting the demands of the curriculum and having fun! As forward-thinking teachers know, the future will be shaped by technology and therefore digital literacy is the passport to the future for all children. A Manifesto for the Creative Economy states, creative skills and information and communication technology (ICT) are two key ingredients of a thriving creative economy. ICT complements the non–routine problem–solving and complex communications tasks that are associated with creativity.
Having the opportunity to connect, learn and play with digital tools will enable your students to be well-prepared for a technologically rich future. That’s why we’ve created a FREE CPD event focussed on boosting creativity & technology in your classroom. We’ve gathered a collection of creative education companies who cannot wait to share their innovative tools and creative approaches that make learning so much fun, it simply feels like play.
Click into Your Creative Classroom has been created with primary school teachers in mind, however anyone interested in technology and creativity for schools, both now and in the future, is welcome to join in the fun.
If you’re ready to click into your creative classroom, join us on Thursday the 14th of June from 6pm - 8pm at EdSpace, Block D, New City College, Hackney Campus for pizza and some refreshing drinks, before experiencing a range of exciting FREE demos of the latest gadgets set to bring your classroom into the 21st century.
