Replied to like: The Benefits of the Copy Stage of Making by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (

Thanks for this link Aaron. The idea that creating by copying is not very creative has often weighed on my mind. Especially in activities like coding in my multi-stage classroom, some pupils are mostly copying instructions. This link made me realise/remember the value of copying. Personally in my own creative endeavours I often start there.

    Cormier uses copying as a means to focusing on other things, such as rhizomatic learning and community as the curriculum.
