How do students define "originality" in their cultural moment--one that is always on, connected, and sharing (thanks to the web and mobile technology)? And, how do their interpretations differ from what educators consider original in the classroom context? Delving deeper, how do we go about teaching students how to be creative and to think critically when doing their own work?
This webcast shares insights into how educators can encourage more creative, engaged, and original thought from their students.
