In a truly creative classroom, teachers need to plan time in their lessons for change and growth. They must allow children to transition from knowledge-gathering and memorizing to synthesizing and puzzle solving. This comes from using their imagination, and encouraging students to do the same.
Imagination is what stays when teachers are gone from their students’ lives. It’s what students have taken from a creative classroom and into real life. While basic knowledge and facts are important building blocks, imagination is the synthesis of that knowledge. Its the vehicle that gets them from point A to point B on their own.
