Ensure Creativity remains a UNESCO priority!

Ensure Creativity remains a UNESCO priority! | Creatively Teaching: Arts Integration | Scoop.it
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.

“Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status” says noted educationalist, Ken Robinson. One of the best ways to nurture creativity is through arts education, something which should be available to every child. Creativity is urgently needed to promote economic, social and cultural development and to generate solutions to the numerous challenges facing the world toda ...

For children, acting out words on the page can yield benefits. Especially for beginning readers, physically moving objects or one’s own body can provide a crucial bridge between real-life people, things, and actions, and the printed words meant to represent them. Fluent readers take this correspondence for granted, but many children find it difficult to grasp.

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

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!
