District-level Design of Creativity for Schools
In 2021, with the theme of "District-level Design of Creativity for Schools", the summit witnessed the released of the Creativity Curriculum Development Handbook that offers guidance to schools in promoting creative thinking and innovation on their campus. This year, local schools in Shanghai and Jiading also started to draw their own creativity roadmap and form creative alliances of schools.
In 2021, the advisory team of GIoCT released a Creativity Curriculum Development Handbook that offers guidance to schools that plan to promote creative thinking and innovation on their campus. The handbook offers step-by-step support to teachers and school managers in introducing curriculum change, pedagogical practices in the classroom, and assessment on creativity, with follow-up workshops and remote communications to facilitate schools to learn and use the handbook.
This year also witnessed the progress made by local schools in Shanghai and Jiading, as they start to draw their own creativity roadmap and form creative alliances of schools.
The summit of this year focused on the theme of District-level Design of Creativity for Schools, sharing practice and experience in leveraging district resources to support creative learning at schools.
Schools from Jiading and Pudong, as the two pilot districts of Creative Lab initiative, have come up with their bespoke preliminary creative thinking models, embedded with local features.
The summit called for the publication of the first-ever case study of creative projects at schools, which will feature the best practice and lessons learned from over 30 member schools. This will be a key piece of work overseen by GIoCT advisory board in the coming year.
