Collaborative Learning has recently done some work with Oxfam and will be working with the Schools History Project to develop relevant and exciting curriculum for both primary and secondary.

One way for educators to learn how to create these conditions is to develop a mindset that allows them to be aware of their own creative abilities. This then creates conditions for a ripple effect of awareness and appreciation for other forms of creativity.
One way you can begin your own creative journey is to sign up for the next free course of “Five Habits of Highly Creative Teachers,” beginning October 6.
