The world is moving from the Information Age to the Conceptual Age, with ideas replacing facts as the currency of the times. The old educational culture of standardization and convention must adapt to become a more balanced educational landscape that embraces a culture of creativity. The challenge is to equip learners with the ability to creatively and critically apply the vast stores of information now at their fingertips, thanks to the Internet and other technological advances.
Creative Expression, Creative Education is based on the premise that creativity should be a primary rationale for education. This collection of essays highlights the experiences of a wide community of creative producers who represent the energy of creative expression and creative education. Educators need to nurture an ongoing experience of creative engagement with diverse kinds of learning in students, and this book provides plenty of ideas for where to start.
