How To Foster Creativity By Cultivating Student-Centered Learning Classrooms

Friday, November 10
1:15 PM - 2:15 PM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 7

Why do students in student-centered learning classrooms show high creativity? Through a synthesis of research from the last 10 years on Student Centered Learning, we are able to discern which traits of these classrooms foster creativity. According to Kim (2016), creativity is derived from newbox thinking, which is made up of inbox and outbox thinking. Student-centered learning promotes inbox thinking through challenge and social engagement, while also promoting outbox thinking through optimism and imagination. Educators and parents alike can borrow concepts from these classrooms to implement in gifted classrooms to support students’ creative potential.
