As I have noted earlier, I am focusing on creativity in the classroom and I've been using some tech activities based on games. I gave the presentation twice in the past week and I learned a lot as I continue improve it. Here's a post on my blog about the presentation as it is so far:

Main points:
-Creativity involves brainstorming and making connections to get many ideas
-From there, you have to select the best one(s).
-The first ideas are just the beginning. What counts is a final product someone will find valuable and that will take many more ideas.
-Creativity games such as Why Did the Chicken...? provide practice for the skills. We play a few rounds of this as a classroom activity. We also played some based on my party games as examples of creative pursuits.
-The students did much better with ideas and they had more fun as I have incorporated more creativity exercises before we play.
