2.4.4 Creative thinking in a regular classroom: Only for some

This presentation will look at the the teaching of highly creative students who have become disengaged with regular classroom cultures and the cultural mechanisms that restrict opportunities for these students to display what they know. Current education provision favours academically minded students: this approach disadvantages practically minded students especially if these students are highly creative. This presentation will identify the characteristics of learning cultures that support highly creative students.
