We have recently been granted a special interest group on the topic of creativity with the Society for Informational Technology in Education. This SIG is chaired by Dr. Punya Mishra, and co-chaired by Dr. John Parks and Dr. Danah Henriksen.
The SIG explores issues of creativity across many different disciplines in the context of learning, teacher education and technology. We seek to understand through sound research questions such as how we support and nurture creative teaching in the classroom (and out of it)? How we help our students develop a creative mind-set and what the role of technology is in all of this. Through this SIG we seek to provide networking opportunities for scholars, faculty and graduate students interested in the role of technology in creativity research and practice. The group is open to a range of creative expressions and modes, and is a forum for explorations of creativity across many different fields of learning. We are open to unique or alternative modes of presentation (interesting papers or talks on creativity/technology are welcomed, both in conventional and unconventional formats).
