"Creativity in the context of ELT is recombining known elements in a
new and engaging way. For example, borrowing activities and
techniques from a very different field and applying them in the
language classroom." Jorge Sette (Brazil)
"For language learners, I think creativity is about going beyond language for
language's sake, and using it as a tool towards making something. For
language teachers, I think it's about not being afraid to experiment with the
unknown and venture out of your 'safe zone' now and then. Experimentation
is the investment, and creativity is the reward when it goes well." Damian
"Creativity is Imagination in action“ Fabiana Casella
"Being creative doesn't always mean being original. Sometimes you can give
known ideas a new twist. For me being resourceful is also being creative.
Dealing with unexpected situations - thinking on your feet." Ela Wassell
