Teachers across subject areas and children studying from 5th to 9th std. with an interest and aptitude towards creativity are invited to participate in the workshop.

Workshop Content

Module 1: Most schools do have art and craft periods but the emphasis is more on developing skills than on creativity and purposeful expressions. Creativity has to be brought back to the art and craft sessions so that they go far beyond developing skills.
Module 2: Introducing design and creativity as part of field visits/engaging with heritage crafts Observation, sensitization to the environment and its connect with design and the man-made world, understanding material culture, creative exploration of material, image building & understanding of cultural symbols could happen through this module
Module 3: Introducing design and creativity as a separate subject with independent periods This would involve assignments on creative problem solving and opportunity building etc. and could really help in getting the children oriented to lateral thinking. This might also result in a project based integrated educational approach.

Developing creative teaching-learning methods for science, history, mathematics based on creativity and a learning by doing-learning by thinking approach will be explored.
