30 Untranslatable Words From Other Languages Illustrated By Anjana Iyer

When something is “lost in translation,” it could have been due to a simple mistake or due to the fact that one language was not quite able to capture the essence of a word's meaning in another language. This conflict is the idea behind New Zealand-based designer Anjana Iyer's “Found in Translation” series of images, which try to explain the meaning behind words in other languages that have no direct equivalent in English.

Empathy In Action: One Teacher’s Story, Techniques and Tips | Creatively Teaching: Arts Integration | Scoop.it
How project-based learning and a student-centered environment promotes plenty of opportunities for applying empathy

 

Creative Collaboration. When students work together on projects, they practice problem solving and critical-thinking. A recent study of economics prompted Leah’s class to decide that they wanted to open and run a school snack shop. So they needed to advertise! Students worked in groups of six to create advertising campaigns.

 

“The necessity of having to include everyone’s ideas in creating a unified vision for their campaigns was a great opportunity for practicing empathy,”

 

Leah observed. Ensuring that everyone’s ideas were incorporated was no small task, but it worked. Brilliantly!

Mara Lockowandt's curator insight, July 17, 1:20 AM

Strong words by Watson:

“Along with a comprehensive arts curriculum, teaching for social justice requires a willingness to ask difficult questions; an openness to want to learn about someone else’s perspective; it is widening the canon of arts and including a diverse roster of artists; it is bringing what is going on outside of the classroom inside; it is about paying attention to the world and creating art that responds to what is happening.”

It has been widely recognized that creativity is the vital ingredient that needs to be cultivated if we are all to survive and flourish in this 21st Century.
