Creativity is a popular buzzword in current educational discourse, but what does it really mean? Not only that, but how can you foster creativity in your classroom and work? This session explores creativity through music and technology using research-based theories of creativity to highlight how the creative process has been envisioned, explained, and understood throughout the last century. Through a series of music- and arts-based problems, participants will create, respond, and perform using processes and conventions developed by creativity scholars such as Wallas, Guilford, Csikszenmihalyi, and Sawyer. As a closing activity, participants will be asked to envision ways in which creativity can be fostered in their teaching and learning contexts and provide solid links to praxis.
