In terms of 21st Century teaching and learning, creativity has been identified as one of the most important skills that students need to thrive in our society. I couldn’t agree more! What our world needs is a generation of young people that will be able to think, write and solve problems in new and innovative ways!

Yet, in a recent study conducted by Adobe, researchers found that our current educational system is actually stifling creativity. Regardless of the reasons why (i.e. lack of resources and/or the role of mandated standardized testing—now there’s a shocker!), we—as teachers—have the opportunity to change these statistics and better prepare our students for the real world.

So, how can we make this happen? The infographic shown below outlines a variety of ways we can encourage our students to be more innovative in their ways of thinking and doing. And guess what? You won’t even have to stray from the required curriculum or packets of test prep in order to do so!

Did I really just type that out loud? Ha, ha! Seriously, enjoy the visual!
