State of Creativity in Education: Teachers Call for an Overhaul of Creative Education Across The Curriculum
September 12, 2013
Hot off the press! We’ve just released our State of Creativity report, which reveals that 67% of teachers and lecturers in the UK believe that creativity in education is vital to fuel the economies of the future, yet believe the current curriculum is hindering them from fostering creativity in education.
It shows that 68% believe in order to teach creativity well, there needs to be a transformation in the way institutions across the country work, with 61% stating that creativity is ‘stifled’ by the current education system. When asked to name the most important step to addressing this 69% of educators said they need more tools and techniques to teach creativity.
As a result, we are calling on decision makers within schools and universities to invest in the latest technologies to help support their staff and meet the growing expectations of parents. Click on the infographic below to view all the key findings in detail:
