Council for Creative Education (CCE) Finland cordially invites you to participate and reveal the
Creativity, Imagination and Digital Technology.

Who knows there will be next Steve Jobs or Newton is hidden within your child! 


Council for Creative Education (CCE) would like to draw the attention of the educator community towards the pivotal change in the learning process. The search for knowledge which was stuck with the books for several generations has now shifted to the internet. The information is readily accessible to most of the world at a click. Technology has overtaken the repetitive tasks which give us more time to think about other creative ideas.


The very first step towards creativity is to ponder on different ideas and imagine various situations. In current learning environments, how are we handling this step? The advancement of the modern world has come into existence as a result of imagination and creativity of earlier generations. Now with the better tools and technology available are we challenging the imagination and creativity enough? How can we use the technology to nurture the creativity and imagination?


Let's discuss the synergy of creativity, imagination and digital technology. It will be interesting and edutaining to see what the researchers and educators are thinking about this concept in their context. CCE cordially invite you to present your findings and philosophies in accordance with the theme for 6th International Symposium on Creative Education, that is, ‘CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION AND DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY’
