Education Model



Learning goals


Goal 1: To strengthen creativity and innovation of our students, and teach them to apply creativity and innovation on practice to develop the problem-solving, entrepreneurial, and leadership skills.

Goal 2: To train creativity facilitators and teachers to engender creativity and innovation skills in students to support the Kenyan Ministry’s 2017 Curriculum Reform and other education authorities in Africa.


Education model 


We base our education model on the following principles:

  • Creativity is visual thinking
  • Creativity can be learned directly
  • Learning activities should be structured, practice-led and relevant
  • Learning environment should be conducive to creativity learning
  • Learning outcomes should be shared.


What our training supports:


  1. Positive beliefs about creativity. Students learn to see creativity as a powerful force for change toward a better future and a fun process that excites and empowers the spirit and energy, and to take responsibility for their own creativity. They discover the joy of being different and challenging stereotypes.
  2. Creativity skills: Visual Thinking, Idea-Generation, and Team Creativity.
  3. Development of the creative personality traits. Students are encouraged to develop the creative personality characteristics, such as being proactive and passionate, brave, curious, open to new experience, confident, ethical, independent, resilient, and to have a strong sense of self-efficacy and self-realization.
  4. Practical creativity. Students practice our Practical Creativity 5-Steps Framework, a step-by-step approach to being creative and innovative in real life.
