Creativity grows in Chinese schools

While the United States emphasizes a “just-the-facts” approach in schools, China is developing a more creative approach. Although China’s national tests still require mastery of a traditional skill set, classrooms are becoming increasingly marked by a cooperative, hands-on approach.

What does this transformation mean for China’s future? How will this shift in classrooms manifest itself in the thinking of China’s next generation? Will the continued existence of a rigorous national testing system hamper the benefits of the creative classroom? It will be fascinating to watch how China responds to this new, widespread educational approach.
