Developing creativity in my school – a follow-up

You are invited to make a local development project plan and to carry it out in your own schools. 

If you wish to publish your development project results, remember to ask for consent from the school management and people who appear in videos or photos or whose voice is recorded; further, ask permission from authors of texts or visuals (check if any material you wish to use is copyrighted). 

The aim of the project is to enhance creativity in your school and in your own pedagogical practice. The project shall include the following elements:

  1. identify a pedagogical challenge which is relevant for the local school community;
  2. plan a local action to address the challenge (implement ideas from module portfolios if applicable);
  3. realize the local development project, try to cooperate with as many participants as possible; 
  4. evaluate the implemented action (for example, use the aspects of the self-assessment tool you used earlier);
  5. reflect on how the module portfolios enhanced planning, implementation and evaluation;
  6. sustainability and future actions.

You can consider some ideas from the following sources:

  • Design Thinking for Educators toolkit which you can download for free after registration. It includes an introduction to design thinking and a Designer's Workbook which systematically guides you through the design process.
  • Design Thinking Bootleg which is a "set of tools and methods" that you can consult for inspiration. This source is a collection of cards that you can download for free,print out, mix and use in any order. 

Please note that you are not expected to follow any of the above sources in their structure or methods, but we recommend them for inspiration to implement some elements of your project.

If you consider your project a good practice, you are much welcome to submit your written report (c. 1500–2000 words) + any other media, e.g. video, photo, webpage, etc. documenting the project according to the structure above. Reports (that are accompanied by declaration regarding consents and permissions) will be published on the website of the Everyday Creativity Erasmus+ project.
