How could artistic activities make online training sessions and work meetings more engaging and exiting? And how could help us to decrease the so called “screen fatigue” and stress and to strengthen the team spirit?
As part of the project “T4T – Tools4Teaching in Digital Education Settings” (2021-1-ES01-KA220-ADU-000033654), we developed Guidelines on how to better set up effective group dynamics in online learning environment, which are available on its website on: https://digitaltools4teaching.eu/
Within the module „Boosting online teaching creativity and learners’ engagement through artistic activities“, you could find:
- Helpful information about what online creativity is and which its basic principles are.
- Helpful tips and examples on how to keep online learners or meeting participants engaged through creative virtual activities.
- Easy examples of online creative boosts, which you could directly apply into practice.
- Some ideas and insights on how to develop and nurture your own creativity in online environment.

But also – a variety of practical exercises and activities using drawing, music, impro theatrical techniques, dance and applied arts that can help you bring ‘fresh air’ into your digital routine.
