I think that technology CAN NEVER kill creativity.
Whatever we did before(without using technology as much) we can still do today. technology is another medium of expressing creativity.
Projects, reports anything, even learning in the class room, has added creativity when we use the help of technology to study and learn.
THats the reason why today, interactive boards, creative writing, more in-school activities are encouraged to be conducted with the help of technology.

Before I begin I would like you to define a few terms, please provide your specific definitions to "technology" and "creativity".

Which in-school activities are encouraged to be conducted with the help of technology?
Debate Round No. 1

Technology -
1. Machines, gadgets, devices, etc. developed through scientific information or knowledge
2. Using technology for practical purposes

Creativity-
1. Using your imagination to create something
2.Being artistic.

(synonyms: imagination, artistry, expressiveness, inspiration, resourcefulness.)

The in-school activities I was referring to.

1. Take a DEBATE itself for instance:
Students are always insisted to aid their arguments and thoughts with
i. PPT presentations
ii. Videos and pictures
iii. related statistics,

All of which are available to us because of technology. It can't be denied that they do make the arguments much more interesting and meaningful while giving the participants the opportunity to be more creative (expressive) in their own unique way.

2. Summer Projects/Reports
Students are given the liberty to use any font, any color, any format they would like to use on the project.
They can type (or write), or stick the information they intend to put in their work. You are allowed to go to any extent of technology to make your work creative and appealing and yet informative at the same time. This applies whether the activity is a group activity or an individual one.

And students do come up with all sorts of things. Each better than the last.

3. Clubs
There are schools that have clubs like
i. The Robotics Club
ii. Photography- Lets do it
iii. Voices - the Debating club
iv. Graphics club
v. Comics and Movies club
vi. Drama stars club

Well, you get the drift. The list is endless. I've just mentioned the clubs that appealed to me. The robots that 1st club comes up with are AMAZING , and we have exhibitions every year showcasing what they do all year.

Do you need any more examples??
