Lacking creativity ...

Yesterday I visited MCAST since I was one of the judges examining student programming projects. What really struck me is the fact that the majority of projects, although technically sound, didn't really explore any new areas or ideas ... a situation of more of the same. Would have expected much better from young students who were given free hand on the topics or areas to focus on. Although not a teaching expert myself, i think that it is highly important that teachers and the teaching model itself introduce creative thinking methods as part of the IT students curriculum.
