Abstract

Consideration of the intersections between creativity and technology is an expansive field of inquiry—requiring focus on an area which is feasible in scope and rich in practical relevance to education. Having reviewed the literature and building from previous EDUsummIT events, this year we focused our attention on risk taking and the notion of productive failure. At the EDUsummIT in 2015 the focus was on situating creativity within the field of educational technology and developing a systemic model (Henriksen, Mishra, & Fisser, 2016. In 2017 TWG3 considered how creativity is instantiated with technology across international contexts (Henriksen et al., 2018). For 2019, we have focused more specifically on risk taking and productive failure, which combine to shape how creativity emerges and develops in creative practices in teaching and learning.
