Creativity Infusion: Creating a Culture of Creativity


Creativity is not something "extra." 

Creativity is not making something pretty or cute.

Creativity is a thinking skill that is an essential part of being a learner.

What if you could make your classroom a place where students' thinking knew no bounds?

What if you had the specific strategies you need to develop students' creativity? 

What if you knew you were increasing the ability of your students to develop concrete skills of creativity they can apply to any area of their lives?

Hi, I’m List Van Gemert, an educator and author of four books on teaching.

If you've got a few hours to watch these videos, I will teach you everything you need to know to create a climate and culture of creativity.
