According to recent research, creative critical thinking is slated to become one of the most important skills needed for success in the workplace.
Here's the problem: most people don't believe they are creative. We, as a society, have not nurtured creativity as a valuable life skill. Our goal at C2C is to educate and bring awareness to the significance of creativity in everyday practice - from curriculum to professional development.
Which brings us to the CREATE Method.
This course will introduce you to the “why” and “how” of incorporating curiosity and creativity into the classroom. Using the unique Curiosity 2 Create method, you can turn your existing curriculum into an engaging and challenging format that will encourage students to become creative thinkers and problem solvers.
Our system is developed by actual teachers who have spent years in the classroom and have relied on their experience and expertise to pinpoint six key steps:
We know that in every classroom, each teacher and student are unique. Because of that, we have made it so that these six steps can be used in any order and completely tailored for your specific needs!
The CREATE Method centers not just on the traditional creative problem-solving process but the unique creative person solving those problems.
The first step in our method is C: CONTENT CURATOR
How do we curate curiosity and creativity into an effective and informed knowledge pathway?
Think of content curation as creating a mixtape or playlist. Its purpose is to share knowledge that is in-depth, relevant, and challenging. While the possibilities available can make this an ongoing task, narrowing it down to the best options often feels quite overwhelming. Teachers are prescribed skills and curricula that must be taught each year and finding extra time to be creative is not always feasible.
That's where we come in. Our method is designed to include these steps into your already existing lesson plan.
As educators and learners, we must discover what makes us and our students curious, and creativity find a way to investigate all the possibilities surrounding that idea. Then ultimately, we have to critically react, judge, and assess what we have discovered. Working with others to evaluate these ideas will allow students to create stronger and unique solutions, which is what the CREATE Method is all about!
