Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity
Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter,
    teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate
    experiences that advance student learning,
    creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and
    virtual environments. Teachers:
a. promote, support, and model creative and innovative
    thinking and inventiveness
b. engage students in exploring real-world issues and
    solving authentic problems using digital tools and
    resources
Reflect on Prior Knowledge

• What is creative thinking? How do you
  know when you have been creative? How
  can technology support creative thinking?
• Consider what “authentic” instruction
  might look like. Other names for this type
  of instruction may be engaged learning,
  learning by design, or learner-centered
  instruction. How can technology support
  this type of instruction?
