Looking for ways to incorporate creative learning into the programming at your library?

Erica Fortescue, Associate Director of the Center for Childhood Creativity, will present the case for creativity and innovation as core skills for future success.  She will share highlights from the newest research on creative thinking from a variety of fields including neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and education. 

This webinar will also show how these techniques prepare young readers for the new Common Core standards.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Have a new collection of activities and resources to use in designing creative library programs
  • Learn to support kids’ creative development by being:  child-directed, risk-friendly, emotionally attuned, active, time-flexible, and exploratory
  • Be able to meaningfully connect their practices to relevant research findings

This webinar is meant for library educators, and other library staff who offer services to children, seeking practical tips for promoting the next generation of creative innovators.

Participants are also encouraged to read the newest white paper from the Center for Childhood Creativity.
