Abstract :
In this article educational researchers Edward P. Clapp and Raquel L. Jimenez offer their findings based on a series of interactive focus group sessions designed to concept test a systems-based orientation towards creative problem solving while at the same time surfacing a new agenda to support creativity throughout the educational sphere. Undergirding each interactive focus group session were the following guiding questions: What does creativity look like? What are the conditions under which creativity thrives? and How can we nurture and support creativity? The researchers assert that creative participation, equity and inclusivity, professional development and structural support, developing a common language, and policy change and future action are imperative to the advancement of the creativity in education agenda. The researchers conclude by suggesting a four-strand approach to future action and research.

Key words : Distributed creativity, Systems-based creativity, Creative participation, Creative problem solving, Participatory culture, Access and equity
