About the Author

Edward P. Clapp is Senior Research Manager at Project Zero and Lecturer on Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA.


"Whatever the validity of the "great man/great woman" view of creativity, it makes creativity seem beyond the grasp of most of us. In this refreshingly innovative book, Edward Clapp puts forth a capacious view of creativity which has powerful implications for education."

--Howard Gardner, John H. and Elizabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education and Senior Director of Project Zero at Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA

"A must-read for all educators aiming to understand creativity and cultivate it in others. Clapp masterfully reviews the historical frames and fallacies of individual theories of creativity. His detailed depictions of how creative ideas socially emerge-ranging from the theory of relativity to hip-hop-reveal the power of collective creativity and how educators can better design experiences for it."

--Daniel Wilson, Director of Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education, USA

"In Participatory Creativity, Edward P. Clapp describes the next wave of creativity theory in easily accessible terms and applies the theory to education. His work is at once sophisticated, provocative, and thoroughly rooted in practice. Few concepts are as important to education today as the participatory theories that Clapp presents. This is must-read material for teachers, educational administrators, and policymakers."

--Michael Hanchett Hanson, Director of the Masters Concentration in Creativity and Cognition at Teachers College, Columbia University, USA, and author of Worldmaking: Psychology and the Ideology of Creativity

"A fresh narrative on creativity that every teacher needs to hear. Clapp makes a compelling case that all students can participate in the creative process and offers immediately actionable steps for cultivating a community of innovation in your classroom and school."

--A.J. Juliani, author of LAUNCH and Inquiry & Innovation in the Classroom
