This report provides an overview of the theoretical foundations for creativity and innovation in the context of education. It emphasises the need to encourage the development of pupils’ and students’ creative and innovative potential for several reasons: 1) the upsurge of new media and technologies that learners use in their everyday lives can be exploited in creative and innovative ways and contribute to formal and informal learning; 2) the immersion in this media-rich environment leads new cohorts of students to learn and understand in different ways, therefore teachers need to develop creative approaches and find new methods, solutions and practices to grab their attention; 3) creativity is a form of knowledge creation, therefore stimulating creativity has positive spillover effects onto learning, supporting and enhancing self-learning, learning to learn and life-long learning skills and competences.
