Collaborative creative science learning on 2 levels:
Preparation & performance
Professor Carl Pennypacker, University of Berkeley, som er leder i IKT i
Læring nettverket Global Hands on Universe (www.handsonuniverse.org)
skriver følgende om «SkyLight» prosjektet:
“In a time when our world Governments seem to be not acting
very carefully or rationally, it is so important for projects like
Skylight to come to fruition! To me, Skylight, if I might take a
verbal liberty here, is a fantastic example of "Crowd-Sourced
World Peace and Cooperation." That is, you have discovered a
way of using the Internet for all people on our planet to work
together to inspire, educate, and lift us all above our selfimposed limits and oppression by others. Certainly one of the
spiritual foundations of Global HOU/GTTP is that all Earthlings
learn to work together to study the stars”.

Strengthening/Supporting Creative Activities in an Inquiry-Based
Science Education Model (Cosmos Project, EU)
•
Phase 1 - Questions Eliciting Curiosity
•
Phase 2 - Active Investigation: Propose preliminary explanations or hypotheses
•
Phase 3 - Creation: Gather evidence from observation
•
Phase 4 - Discussion: Explanation based on evidence
•
Phase 5 - Reflection: Communicate explanation
Analysis by Prof. Marianne Ødegaard, Forskningsleder,
Naturfagsenteret, UiO (2)
CREAT-IT proposes the following working
definition for creativity in science education:
Generating ideas and strategies as an individual
or community, reasoning critically between
these and producing plausible explanations
and strategies consistent with the available
evidence. Such scientific creativity as fuelled
by ‘little c’ creativity, i.e. purposive and
imaginative activity generating outcomes
that are original and valuable in relation to
the learner. - from the CREAT-IT Pedagogical
Framework Deliverable D2.1
