How many times have you listened to a lecture, memorized the information, and passed the exam only to be unable to recall most of what you learned just weeks later?

Teaching and Creativity Go Hand in Hand

Engaging Teaching is About Flexing Our Creative Muscles

Sir Ken Robinson once said in a TED Talk that "Teaching is creative profession."

I love that line. 

Because of systems in place, as well as cultural stereotypes, and Mrs. Crabapple from The Simpsons, it is very easy to believe that teachers are just walking textbooks, or playback machines, or mindless dictators (ok, maybe I can be a little dictatorish sometimes).
