    5. 5. One characteristic of creativity is • …you can’t push it! • but you can design conditions and frames to support the creation of new ideas • you can use creativity methods (e.g. deBono) • iPads: Mobile devices can help to document, share, discuss the new idea wherever you are – whenever you get the new idea! 5 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    6. 6. Challenges for Teaching(Schools and Higher Education) RQ 1: What are the understandings of teachers towards creativity and the use of iPads in schools? RQ 2: What do the teachers do in the practice of their classrooms? Do they apply didactical concepts to foster creativity, designs for learning where students create something?Th. Herrmann, 2009: collaborative creativityG. Fischer, 2010: learning when the answer is not knownLund & Hauge, 2011: designs for teaching; designs for learningJahnke et al., 2012 6 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se

    9. 9. First impressions3 examples1. Transformative learningTransformation of existing “math stories”: students get the taskto create “comics”; using the iPad to create the stories (App: Strip Designer) 9 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    10. 10. First impressions2. Peer-ReflectivelearningStudents write somethingfrom their childhood andreflect in peer-reviews theirwriting skills usingFacebook; iPads deliverInternet-Access 10 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    11. 11. First impressions3. Personalized learning(individual needs of the learners)• students design experiments in physics (sound/light);• other students create a mindmap first to collect their (non-)knowledge 11 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    12. 12. ResultsThere is a shift in teaching practices!•Focus on Action•Focus on “the students create something” (and reflect it)•Learning is designed in a process(not only focused on exams/test)⇒Activating the students engagement (and pupils’motivation) through DOING ***What the teachers have in common1.Innovators & early adopters (Rogers 2003, Diffusion ofInnovations)2.Teaching philosophy and their passion: “learning by mistakes”;making mistakes that’s good”: “open-minded”, “tell my students,be creative”; “to challenge the students”3.They adopted the iPad as a “booster”to design “learning to be creative” 12 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    13. 13. Benefits of iPads (instead laptops)?Interviewees:•“It’s easy” (e.g., “My old father use it, too”)•“It works”•It’s mobile – “Pupils can bring it home”•“It is not time consuming”•“I don’t need to organize the Laptops where always softwarewas missing or out of battery”•“I have more time for my pupils for individual guiding insteadfixing the IT”•“The pupils are equal” (all have now access to facts/knowledgethrough the iPads/Internet) 13 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    14. 14. Limitations• It is only a small piece of a bigger picture• Odder project just began 14 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    15. 15. Conclusions • Creativity is closely connected to the creation of something. Gerhard Fischer (CSCL2009): “You can’t be creative without creating something.” If this is true, then… • …Odder is on a good way. The teachers adopt the iPad to create new designs for learning that is shifting to a ‘focus on action’ where the social relationships among the peers as well as the teacher-student relation is integrated in the designs for a situation that is unknown.Bergström (2012), Designing for the UnknownJahnke & Kumar (2012) 15 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
    16. 16. “There is notechnology in there”“An iPad is the littlebaby for pupils –they are moremotivated to learn”“Finally! Someonegot the vision tothink different” 16 isa.jahnke@edusci.umu.se
