Fostering and Assessing Disruptive Creativity

Access and Inclusion January 29, 2015

Lord Jim Knight, Director of Online Learning at TSL Education Ltd., maintains that society needs more disruptive people who challenge authority: teachers, parents and policy makers may disagree, but there is no future unless we allow this change to happen.

We can find new ways of assessing creativity, for example through group work and using personal electronic devices to record thoughts and actions, but what matters most is students’ own expectations of what they can achieve. Formative assessment is therefore more valuable than summative assessment.

We should work with parents and teachers to make teaching about coaching learning rather than content delivery for tests.
