  • Ms_A_Yeh Feb 24 @ 8:35 AM EST
    A1: I like doodling (and trust me, I'm not an artist). #Sketchnoting is a great way to bring that into the classroom! #HackLearning
  • MrU_ishere Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    Up past my bedtime to see former students in their HS production of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." Incredible to see how my Ss have grown and changed! But I'm here, #hacklearning. Let's do some learning. Karl, 3-6 gr ELA teacher from south Joisey.
  • HOWareyousmart Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    Good Morning, I’m late, but so love an Ed chat. Becky joining from Vero Beach, Fl #HackLearning
  • markbarnes19 - Moderator Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    I carve out daily time for brainstorming, which is my favorite creativity habit. I jot down any idea--no matter how odd it might seem. Teachers can easily instill this habit in their students. It could be a weekly bellringer or exit ticket activity. #HackLearning.
  • DrJacieMaslyk Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    Welcome Peter--nice to see you here for #HackLearning

  • 3_DLeadership Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    A1: I think one tactic for me is leaning into cognitive dissonance. If I allow myself to think beyond my comfort zone, it helps me think of new things. #hacklearning
    In reply to @DrJacieMaslyk
  • the_mulc Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    A1: Finding the beauty in loose parts and simple things, making and creating. So many possibilities ... so many ways to transfer to #makewriting #hacklearning
    In reply to @DrJacieMaslyk
  • Ms_A_Yeh Feb 24 @ 8:36 AM EST
    A1b: I think that it one of the best ways to spark creativity is to not stop at the first answer. "Yes, what else? What's another way? Tell me more!" #HackLearning
  • MatthewXJoseph Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST
    A1: Sometimes "enthusiasm" is not seen as a creative habit, but I think enthusiasm is contagious and being a positive voice and encouragement to others, flames the fire of creativity. #hacklearning
  • mrshowell24 Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST
    A1- I would say my top creative habit is people watching and not afraid to fail I gain a lot of ideas just by looking on twitter #HackLearning
  • mrsgregory03 Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST
    Morning! Alison Gregory, Lead Learner from KY. #HackLearning
  • ifireup Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST

    In reply to @MatthewXJoseph
  • 3_DLeadership Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST
    Another tactic for creativity; leaning into embarrassment when something I make isn’t good. That allows me to take future risks. And sometimes what I don’t think is good, others like #hacklearning
  • SylviaEllison Feb 24 @ 8:37 AM EST
    A1 for me, starts with copies on color paper ... in Preferred Activity Time, we play strategy games, reading directions to learn new games ... while I don’t have a wonder wall yet ... that’s a next step for me #HackLearning

  • alisonstoneCBSD Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    A1: My creativity comes from several spaces, I think I read a lot, I love to listen to books/podcast on top of reading and during my exercise time (I run every day) I process everything I’ve read/listen to and that’s where I develop new ideas #hacklearning
  • ChristineBemis2 Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    A1 I write in a journal throughout the day, read tons of books about just about anything 😊📚 , walk w/my 🐶🐶🐶& reflect #hacklearning
  • CoachKCullen Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    A1 Try to see educational inspiration in places in non-traditional places. Start every school year with a trip to Cooperstown & @baseballhall & draw upon that. Or not seeing where the room I teach as a classroom but playground. Mindset is huge in creativity #hacklearning
  • clegleiter Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    A1. I have tried to be creative with out staff PD as way to engage teachers and “move the needle.” We have done student and parent panels, Genuis Hr and invited local company in to share skills they need in employees. #HackLearning
  • sue_ferrara Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    I go to my yoga mat to rest, recharge and clear my head. And, I read and think a lot. #hacklearning

    I’m. also have the inspiration to fiddle play with #Sketchnotes but don’t seem to allow myself the time #HackLearning
  • DrJacieMaslyk Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST
    Taking time to notice things in nature, listening to music, engaging in mindfulness practices are all daily habits that can fuel your creativity. #HackLearning
  • mjjohnson1216 Feb 24 @ 8:38 AM EST

  • Dr_LMR Feb 24 @ 8:39 AM EST
    Definitely think enthusiasm is contagious too! It brings positive energy and provides ‘space’ for curiosity and risk-taking. #HackLearning
    In reply to @MatthewXJoseph
  • the_mulc Feb 24 @ 8:39 AM EST
    A1: Embracing/celebrating failure ... showing it off as a means to success. Model it's ok to make mistakes and how it adds to learning! #beautifuloops #hacklearning
    In reply to @DrJacieMaslyk
  • MonicaHousen Feb 24 @ 8:39 AM EST
    I like to read, I like to check in with my peer (live and virtually!) and bounce ideas around. I learn from both my math peeps and Ts in other disciplines. Love it when our ideas come together and new things are created! Always trying new things in the classroom. #hacklearning

    Hi I’m Jove a MS Principal from MO #HackLearning
  • Jim_dEntremont Feb 24 @ 8:39 AM EST
    A1: Asking questions opens new worlds. Students can ask questions about topics, find out about them, and where possible attack the "So, what can you do about it / to make it better or what is / was an alternative?" aspect to the topic. #HackLearning

    Habits I’m working on—Collecting ideas in a creativity notebook and trying sketchnoting. These are low-stakes ways to build creative stamina for teachers and students. #hacklearning

    A1: I take a lot of nature photos. You can see what I mean at a few IG accounts: les_far, far_sci, and rosseaulakecollege. I also like to build science puzzles, make schedules, organize people, places, and activities. I pick away, never stop. https://t.co/WHBkhsLGkX #hacklearning

  • carlameyrink Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    So true. The "no ideas are bad" is crucial to free brainstorming and coming up with ideas that we might not think of otherwise. #hacklearning

  • DrJacieMaslyk Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    That is coming up in Q2. Get ready to share your favorite strategies! #hacklearning
  • HOWareyousmart Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    A1 - Singing, acting and making people laugh. I foster these in small ways like: singing in church, singing/acting in musicals/MCing events and reading to kids all the time. This helps me teach: holding kids captive with books and reading/singing/acting #HackLearning
  • MeganPalmerEDU Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    I like to try to put my own spin on things, this #creativity sometimes translates to the classroom. I've had Ss use Piktochart often, so I made a recent infographic presentation instead of my go-to Google slides. #HackLearning
  • clegleiter Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    We are stronger together! #HackLearning
  • alextvalencic Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    A1: I married an artist, so sometimes it feels like I have no creativity, but @ajjuliani and @spencerideas reminded me in LAUNCH that there are lots of ways to create; my number one creative habit is asking questions, which I bring everywhere I go! #hacklearning

  • MrU_ishere Feb 24 @ 8:41 AM EST
    Yup! I call it "lateral drift." Answers and ideas often come when you aren't directly thinking abt the problem/challenge. But you have to be mentally tanked up on all the information that primes the brain to generate the ideas. #hacklearning
