Abstract [en]

Creativity and innovation have become two very important concepts in today’s society where the demand for these abilities are sought after. At the same time, the school system of today follows a more traditional outlook on what learning and knowledge means.The extend students ability to understand and elevate their motivation is possible through creative methods of working. In order to create a school system which can withstand the demands of the future by including creative methods in its model, a study was carried out to examine how teachers’ thoughts on creativity could mean for its development.This study took place in an elementary school in Sweden where Entreprenöriellt Lärande (EL) has been in use for the last two years. Three teachers were interview regarding subjects such as a) creativity and what it means, b) teaching and motivation and c) students abilities. The study showed that the concept of creativity had undergone some changes even though it was thought of as small ones. This in turn affected the work that was being done and the concept of teaching. At the same time, there are constraints in which the teachers are working, for instance limited recourses and having to reach certain goals. The innovative proposal this study contributes is based on those factors the teachers listed as most constraining.
