‘We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought’ Bertrand Russel (1920)
Welcome to my e-portfolio discussing creative learning and teaching, with a focus on creativity in secondary science education. Most of my posts to follow will be reflections from my Master’s degree in Educational Practice and will discuss the effectiveness of different creative learning and teaching strategies, reviewing the historical arguments for creativity in education and how the government aims to continue to raise the creativity in the curriculum.
The blog will depict my learning journey of the ideas surrounding creative education. I will reflect on methods I have introduced into my year 7-11 science classroom and the implications of the strategy on the learning of my students; as well as relating them to the literature.
