Creative Play with Educational Technology

Random Assignment

Building a community for exploring, creating and sharing

This website is intended to be a place where activities and lessons created in the MAET program can be shared openly with anyone.  Activities can be taken from this archive and modified for your own use in a class or workshop.  It is our hope that as people use and develop new activities and assignments they will contribute them back to this site increasing the volume of activities in the archive and spreading the wealth.  Our goal is to create an archive of assignments that offer a range in cognitive tools, content area, duration of activity, and skill level needed to participate in activity.

The activities in this website are categorized by the 7 Cognitive Tools required for Transdisciplinary creativity for more information on these cognitive tools check out the Sparks of Creativity Project (see below).
