If we know one thing about teachers, it’s this: you guys sure are a creative lot. Whether you’re outfitting your walls with colorful decorations, gamifying your classroom, directing a class movie with special effects, or differentiating your teaching approaches, teaching requires a special kind of creative spark.
We’re all about creativity here at Edudemic, and so we couldn’t resist asking this of you back in October:
