In a recent post: Why Technology? I highlighted the NEA’s 4 Cs for preparing students for a global, 21st century, education.  In this post I address one of those Cs: Creativity and Innovation.  How do we use technology to address this skill?


  • Students research a topic and use an app to present their information.
  • Students demonstrate their knowledge on a topic by creating a video or slideshow.
  • Students practice fluency by presenting a book or poem they have read on digital media.
  • Students role play characters and video themselves conducting an interview.

Go to my post, Apps for Presentations, for suggestions of apps to use.


  • Create a digital story.
  • Create a tutorial for other students (i.e. how to add double digits).
  • Create a comic.
  • Bring a story to life using coding apps.
