Public seminar on “Design for Creativity: Empowerment for Early Childhood Curriculum”.

In recent years there has been a growing understanding of creativity correlated with cultural awareness and a significant increase in the promotion of creativity at all levels within schools. Creativity addresses the way teachers/facilitators reshape the curriculum to better enable children to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. The Hong Kong Chapter of Pacific Early Childhood Education Research Association (PECERA) organized a seminar on March 23, 2009 that had inspired minds of innovation and explored how we could empower children’s creative development in early childhood curriculum.

Dr. Yan-yan Lam and Mr. Kelvin Tam of the Hong Kong Design Institute shared on the topic “Chinese cultural resources as inspiration for design education: reference for enrichment of early childhood curriculum”. They looked into cultures and had inspired the audience on how Chinese cultural resources could be used in early childhood curriculum to nurture children’s creativity. It was then followed by sharing in response to the topic by PECERA (HK) Executive Committee members Mrs Chu Tang Lai-Kuen and Dr Maria Lee. The audience showed great interest in this subject and had welcome the new and inspiring ideas.
