The amazing Clara Galan from Adobe takes some time to chat with me about Creativity. It is a fun conversation with some great tidbits of information for educators out there looking for resources to support the learning of creative tools. Adobe Spark is a great example of a wonderful tool that has done awesome things in supporting students exploring their creative ideas.

Creativity through curiosity with Andrew Collins
Andrew Collins from the Raspberry Pi Foundation joins me to talk about creativity and really got me thinking about the role of curiosity in creativity. This is why I love doing podcasts. I get a chance to talk to different people and learn something new. Andrew also shares his thoughts on the role of creativity in professional development and how Raspberry Pi works hard to create programs like Picademy and their online courses that spark curiosity and creativity in the teachers that sign up. If you want to know more about Raspberry Pi, check out RaspberryPi.org or reach out to Andrew on Twitter at @ascollins.
