Abstract

Creativity has been looked at historically as coming from the other . Greeks believed that creativity flowed from the Muses later researchers believed that creativity was an innate ability of eminent persons. In both instances creativity was not something everyone had. Newer research shows that creativity is a process and processes can be taught. Tools to help foster creativity are all around us, one of the most effective is technology. This paper looks at how teachers from Europe and a middle school in the United States view technology as a tool to help develop creativity. The results were reflected on and turned into a set of essential learnings that can be used to develop technology skills in the elementary that can transfer and allow creativity to flourish in middle school.
