You might start with one of more of the following.

  • A storyboard

Consider the expertise you have in each group.

Strategy 2

Do Schools Kill Creativity? | Sir Ken Robinson - TedTalks

Explores the importance and value of creativity within education.

Sir Ken Robinson presents an entertaining talk on creativity, and the importance of providing children with opportunity to be creative.

As teachers, do we provide too many constraints during concept development stages? This presentation provides an opportunity for wider discussions around the implications this may have in how we frame technological experiences for students.
