Project Motivation

Creativity in education is unpresented in the majority of the educational settings around world. Although creativity is important for inventive thinking and problem-solving skills, teachers are not train on how to enhance creativity in schools. Furthermore, due to Covid-19 impact the need for creativity in education is even more necessary for the next generations. Creativity is fundamental to human thought development and survival. Creativity theories are important in supporting instruction and learning, and elevation of teacher understanding and learning design. As the economic gap is widening due to the pandemic, creativity can act as a key engineer for facilitating social harmony, sustainable human development, technological invention and scientific revolution. 
 
The Restoring Power project focuses on the development of creativity in education by training people working in schools such as teachers, principals and educators on how to foster a creative class atmosphere, and to equip young people with competences and skills necessary for future challenges. The project will foster new forms of learning by real life cases, virtual mobility, coaching and flipped classroom. It brings together 6 diverse organisations from the UK, Turkey, Norway, Italy, Ireland, and Malta to form a strategic partnership that will empower schools to pursue creative education. Responding to Covid19 challenges, our project’s main objective is to deliver the Erasmus HORIZONTAL priority of Skills Development and Inclusion through creativity and the arts.
