Abstract: In this symposium, we explore the importance of creativity, as a key construct for 21st century education in general, and in terms of technology for teaching and learning in particular. Creativity is clearly a vital theme to education, not only because of its role as a principal driver for growth, and new innovations, but also as a key attribute of thinking, learning and solving problems in our complex world (Cropley, 2003). This emphasis on creativity and its integration into curriculum cannot happen without forethought and planning. We suggest that there are three threads of system-wide emphasis for research, practice and policy to consider in building an effective foundation for creativity and technology in education—these being teacher education, assessment, and educational policy. The presentation in this symposium emerged from EDUSummIT 2015 in Bangkok, and reflect that work and discourse.
