  • Digital leadership is a strategic mindset and set of behaviors that leverages resources to create a meaningful, transparent, and engaging school culture. It takes into account recent technology innovations, such as ubiquitous connectivity, open-source technology, mobile devices, and personalization to dramatically shift how schools are run and structured to achieve college and career readiness in today’s competitive global economy.

  • Creativity is highly valued in the global workforce, and educational policymakers around the world have embraced creativity as an important outcome in national curriculum documents. How are global educators fostering creativity both inside and outside schools?
  • The webinar will discuss how teachers and students combine elements of creativity in teaching and learning in formal education with research findings from a variety of countries (China, Australia, and Canada) and the International Baccalaureate program. We will also explore concrete examples of creativity in informal educational settings with examples from Peru and Turkey. A design thinking challenge in Istanbul, Turkey, engaged secondary students in solving a local community problem. A collaborative partnership, Nourish to Flourish, in Arequipa, Peru, focuses on pre-school and primary students and their families working together to strengthen community identity.
  • This webinar will be of general interest for any educator who is thinking about how to inspire creativity in the learning process.
