dc.description.abstract Creativity has become a prerequisite for societal progress, and schools are critical to this progress. The purpose of this study was to explore Grade 9 Technology teachers’ creative pedagogy when handing Mini-PAT in schools around Sekhukhune East district. Qualitative research design was employed by the researcher to purposively sample five (5) Technology teachers from five (5) schools to participate in this study. Non-participant observations and semi-structure interviews were used as the methods of data collection from the participants. This study adopted Rashmi’s four elemental model of creative pedagogy as a conceptual framework. The findings of this study have revealed that grade 9 Technology teachers have challenges in engaging their creative pedagogy when handling Mini-PAT and that hinders the promotion of creativity. These challenges are some of the reasons why the purpose of Technology of producing creative learners is not obtained. This study calls for the Department of Basic Education to revamp the curriculum for Technology education, especially as it concerns time allocation for a smooth incorporation of creativity in the classroom. It also encourages subject advisors to come with better ways of training teachers on how to apply their creative pedagogies and the design process when handling Mini-PAT. Lastly, it encourages Technology teachers to reflect on their teaching strategies with respect to creative thinking skills en_US
