17 Tips for a Creative, Life-Long Learning Journey

Need a little creativity boost? Peter Reynolds is an illustrator and multimedia designer who believes that art is a powerful tool for learning. 17 Tips is an inspiring little electronic book which you can view here in small format, and download for free to share full screen. A selection:

Tip #1 Relax. Make some tea.

Tip #6 Imagine your classroom as a studio, as a research centre, as a publishing house.

Tip #8 Celebrate the blank page. Use programs that allow the user to supply the content.

Tip #15 Encourage strategies for personal achievement.

It won't change your life, but it may make you smile. Peter is also generous with his beautiful clip art and a few of his children's books which can be viewed and heard online.
