Abstract

There are three threads to an understanding of creativity and educational technology: the first and foremost is understanding the development of creativity in the learner. Secondly, we need to understand how creativity can be supported and developed by educational technology, and which methods are most effective in a specific educational context. Finally, we also need to understand how creativity can be developed in professional instructional designers. Each of these issues will be examined in this writing, some of the diverse theories that support the development of creative skills will be explored. The writing will also examine the interaction of educational technology and creativity. This has been written in support of a keynote address for the 2017 EITT conference in Osaka, Japan.
