Carnival Visions: Digital Creativity in Teacher Education
ARTICLE

Learning, Media and Technology Volume 31, Number 1, ISSN 1743-9884

Abstract

This paper is a theoretical and analytical account of a digital video-editing project with student teachers. The work was part of a wider study known as “Creative Teachers for Creative Learners,” and investigated how creativity could be integrated within existing structures and courses of initial teacher education. The paper draws on notions of multimodality to explain how resources such as gesture, image, speech, narrative and music were used by student teachers to create meaning within video productions. Participants noted that the digital video project allowed them to think about how to use these resources in formal schooling contexts and how this could contribute to further work on introducing creativity and agency into their teaching practices. (Contains 3 figures.)
