Abstract

As educators we are focused on developing educational practice and provision and therefore pay a great deal of attention to how to enhance the development of each student’s creative potentials. We are aware of our values negated where schools in Croatia are dominated by practice that enhances creativity  in just a few school subjects (Croatian language, art and music), while other school subjects are often neglected.

We believe that teaching, which enhances students’ creativity, is a student-centred approach and traditional didactical structure and methods, as used in our schools, does not support cooperation between student and teacher.  Therefore a different approach is needed in order to support creativity in the classroom.

In this paper we describe and explain how the creativity of students can be enhanced in the process of teaching Technical Education, a subject that has undergone numerous changes over the last twenty years, often to the detriment of the creative work of students and teachers.
