Creativity and Identity

Technology does not only help with learning assistance. It has many outlets to open up creativity. According to The Modern Parent, “Kids are making new content, reworking old content and coming up with new and more creative ideas to get a message across, express an idea or connect with others. There is much that can be encouraged by allowing our children this freedom to create.”

Some of this is found on social media, but kids are also able to have blogs where they curate information or ideas. They can build digital worlds in games such as Minecraft or Sims. They can develop identities online.
