Abstract

In this paper we conceptualise what constitutes being creative is in the 21st century and contend that it is an imperative that schooling foster creative thinking from the early years. Citizens in the knowledge era have to be creative, innovative, flexible and work effectively in collaborative teams in order to be able to make a valuable contribution to society. We illustrate the ways in which creative partnerships have enabled schooling systems to not only engage students in new ways of thinking and knowing but also enable them to participate in authentic learning with the use of new technologies.
