Igor Bonifacic on why startups are a practical and profitable career choice for art school grads

Mac Cagle's insight:

What I like the most about this article is that it shows that in the end, education in the arts has merit when it comes to crafting a career and can lead to a good life. The career it speaks of, artistic design in websites, is in high demand in this brave new world.

Mac Cagle's insight:

This article is a bit pessimistic at the same time is has hope. It makes mention of how the arts in education shrinking and how it has lost much of its funding but still has the hope that the arts will survive and are getting better as a community.

'STEAM' education gains momentum in schools | eSchool News | Arts In Education | Scoop.it
For years, educators have been told about the importance of STEM education in ensuring the nation’s competitiveness in a global economy. Now, a new movement seeks to amend that acronym to “STEAM”—with an “A” for the arts.

From STEM to STEAM to STREAM: wRiting as an Essential Component of Science Education | Psychology Today

From STEM to STEAM to STREAM: wRiting as an Essential Component of Science Education | Psychology Today | Arts In Education | Scoop.it

A further extension of the concept:

 

"STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. There is a movement afoot to turn that acronym into STEAM by adding the Arts. Science educators have begun to realize that the skills required by innovative STEM professionals include arts and crafts thinking. Visualizing, recognizing and forming patterns, modeling and getting a "feel" for systems, as well as the manipulative skills acquired in the use of tools, pens and brushes, are all demonstrably valuable for developing STEM capability. And the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) have gotten the message: formal meetings between the two agencies are underway to figure out how to fund productive research and teaching at the intersections between these sets of disciplines.

 

NSF and NEA also realize that adding the Arts to STEM is not enough. We also need to add the thinking skills embodied in Reading and wRiting. STEAM may condense into a STREAM."

How cool! This organization is offers a multidisciplinary arts-integrated approach to education. This will inspire kids passions, which is the best way to engage them to learn.

This is a simple one but I always like lists like these. It proclaims that musical education early in ones life can help children learn and think in different ways. As well as little fun fact I found interesting, that students with an art background tend to do better on the SAT test.

A STEAM Bridge Across the Middle Passage | Musings of a Renegade Futurist

A STEAM Bridge Across the Middle Passage | Musings of a Renegade Futurist | Arts In Education | Scoop.it

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) is a play on the popular STEM movement that has swept through U.S. education, with a focus on including the arts as essential to a complete education.

 

My research is STEAM + C (for culture) but rather than create yet another acronym my argument is that culture and vernacular can be infused across all of these disciplines.

 

Like the ancient Egyptian polymath Imhotep many artists, scholars and writers place a techno-cultural lens on STEAM that can be used to foster interest and motivation in both engaged and disengaged learners.

Mac Cagle's insight:

This article has a very graceful way it is written. It explains the steam education program; the part I am most interested in is the art aspect. It has a couple demonstrations of students art in schools and goes in to great detail about how many of the schools arts programs have created amazing artist with even more amazing art to prove it.

Anthologies and scholarly treatments devoted to the work of women in the medium of comics are not new, yet women remain a minority in the field, and as a minority we have a presence that is less visible; a voice that is less heard; our work carries themes that are less critically explored, and we inherit and continue to shape a politics of representation that is weighted differently in the historically male-dominated field of image and text.

 

This is not a journal whose goal is female empowerment; instead, its purpose is intellectual and aesthetic edification: we hope to expose comics creators, scholars, and readers of all genders to ideas and art, and ideas about art.

The importance of music in schools

The importance of music in schools | Arts In Education | Scoop.it
When we hear about music and other art programs in our school curriculum, most of us are guilty of putting it aside. For example, the focus is then put on the basic or standard studies in schools such as reading, writing and arithmetic.
Mac Cagle's insight:

This article is one of my favorite because it starts off by saying that schools should not push aside the so called less essential studies in favor of testing an reading. It mentions the culprit being budget cuts, but budget cuts could be equal across the board but instead it taken from the arts programs. It also shows that students are more motivated to continue in normal studies after a they have also studied art
