Educator Stories

These inspirational talks about creativity focus on knowledge, learning and evidence-based practices that work. Speakers will share big-picture stories of how creativity builds the skills students need to thrive now and in the future.

Keynote and Design Challenge

Get your creative juices flowing with group challenges that have both digital and analog options using simple materials and free tools. You’ll focus on creating with constraints — such as time and materials — and discover how liberating it can be to work through these barriers.

Exploratory Creation Labs

Exploratory Creation Labs are 50-minute introductory labs that encourage investigation and experimentation around new techniques or tools at a pace that allows participants with no prior knowledge of the theme to explore and learn.

Deep-Dive Creation Labs

Deep-Dive Creation Labs are 75-minute sessions designed for participants who have some prior knowledge or familiarity with the tech tools or themes. These labs will push your skills and thinking further, and allow you to delve into the theme, create while you learn and have something to take home!

Experimental Virtual Playgrounds

The playgrounds at CCL contain a series of 15- to 20-minute sessions that run concurrently with other short sessions around one theme. Participants drop in for a fun hands-on lesson that may show some tips, tricks or techniques related to a larger theme, and then rotate to another session during the playground time block. Each playground will be repeated up to three times during the virtual playground time.

Creativity Salons

Meet the mentors/coaches of CCL. Drop in to ask questions and go deeper into aspects of a session you joined. Get simple tips and your questions answered.
