This year’s conference focuses on creativity. Our keynote presenter is an international expert on creativity. Dr. Plucker will present the following opening keynote.
Creativity: What it is, What it isn’t, and How to Help Children Have More of it
Creativity is considered to be a highly valued 21st century skill, but what do we know about how to foster it in children? How can we even define it? During this keynote, Dr. Plucker will explore what we know about creativity, share recent research about how to foster it in children, and share a vision for the future of creativity education.
We have switched up this year’s conference schedule based on feedback from participants at last year’s conference. This year’s conference will include 1.5-hour hands-on, interactive workshops.
