Educational drama in education for sustainable development: ecopedagogy in action

Educational drama in education for sustainable development: ecopedagogy in action | Education for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

by Marie Jeanne McNaughton

 

This paper presents an overview of a research project based on the hypothesis that educational drama might be a useful medium for teaching and learning in environmental, sustainable development and global citizenship education.

 

Central to the project, an ethnographic case study employing a multi‐case approach, based on three research questions, was a series of drama–ESD lessons, taught to three classes of 10–11 year old children in three primary schools in the West of Scotland.

Data were gathered using a range of instruments: interviews; observation schedules; pupil evaluations; research‐practitioner reflective field notes; and video‐recordings of the lessons.

 

The final section of the paper suggests that there are many pedagogical approaches common to educational drama and ESD and that, indeed, a range of dramatic techniques and conventions can be an important addition to the repertoire of active learning approaches employed by the ESD educator.

Tamyka Mills's curator insight, June 6, 2014 6:08 AM

 

'The Guide to Education for Sustainability' is based around providing resources and information on ways to incorporate Sustainability into education and the classroom. The Education for sustainability website provides educators with curriculum examples, scope & sequence documents, images, video and a lot more  resources for educators to use to implement into the classroom to improve teaching and learning of sustainability. This resource is a great way to implement new initiatives into the classroom that engages students with authentic tasks that apply to the student lives. An invaluable resource for any teacher to have.

 

This website aligns with the Australian Curriculum: Sustainability where students learn that Sustainable futures result from actions designed to preserve our environment (ACARA, 2014).

http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/CrossCurriculumPriorities/Sustainability

This website also aligns with the Australian Curriculum: Technologies where students recognize the factors, including sustainability that impact on products, services and environments (ACTDEK010) (ACARA, 2014).
