The people behind this cool tool are passionate about helping creators tell the stories they wish to share. “Storytelling,” they say, “is data, wrapped in context, delivered by meaning. When learning becomes meaningful and barriers for learning are removed, learners will flourish and succeed.”
The means by which they help them is Creaza, a 21st-century storytelling tool, and more precisely: a pedagogical toolbox that enables all students to challenge and express themselves, both in class and remotely, through:
Creaza inspires learners to become producers in the classroom. “We fight for the right of each child to shape their own learning in a fun-filled environment that motivates them to become fearless explorers,” says a company rep. “Teachers are already superheroes with or without us, but even superheroes might need a little guidance sometimes.”
The platform helps teachers to turn learning into something creative and fun; they can assign activities and collaborate with their students, follow their work along the way, and provide formative assessment – both orally and written.
Used by almost 40% of all K-12 schools in Sweden and Norway and widely used across the world, in 2018 Creaza was awarded “Best International Digital Educational Resource” at the Bett Awards. Allowing for creativity and providing flexibility, it is seen as offering a balance of user-generated and pre-provided content, and a personalized learning experience.
The energetic engineers on their Norway-based team “want to earn the privilege of contributing to the education of tomorrow” and with every improvement and adjustment to Creaza, they are doing just that. Creaza is a Cool Tool Award Finalist (2021) for “Best Arts, Music, or Creative Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
