Creativity Improves with Activity-based Learning

Teacher Insights

Researchers at the University of Missouri have found that activity-based learning enhances student creativity in technology-enabled training. Student creativity was most enhanced by professors who allowed their students to use technology in a team setting to come up with a novel product or idea. For example, one group of students in a history class developed an app that virtually teaches users about the history surrounding the Berlin Wall. Rather than simply lecturing the material to the students. The use of technology in a collaborative way helped in better understanding of lessons. Teachers need to rethink how they design their existing courses so that students do not become consumers of information. Such creativity can help them become better innovators, entrepreneurs, and business owners.
