Helen King on Creativity

In 2012 one of our cluster lead teachers, Helen King, was awarded an eFellowship with Core ED. It was significant for all of us that she chose to investigate creativity in her classroom to enhance learning and teaching. 
The Manaiakalani schools have developed the "Learn Create Share" pedagogy and in 2012 acknowledged that the Create component of the pedagogy is the most challenging to consistently provide opportunities for.
In this video Helen explains what she did with her class of Year 5 ( none year old) children.

Helen King from Pt England School tells us how encouraging creativity through music, animation, and movies enhanced the learning of her students. She found that infusing creativity through all curriculum areas contributed to a change in classroom culture.
