50 Ways To Integrate Art Into Any Lesson

50 Ways To Integrate Art Into Any Lesson | educational technology et | Scoop.it

"As children, young children, everything meant playing and art. We saw the world as a playground and a canvass. It didn’t matter whether or not we could actually draw. What mattered was the thrill of creating something beautiful.

We were all artists. We still are."

This article demonstrates why use the A for Art, when we use the expression STEAM rather than STEM. Art mixes the other themes together.

Teaching is a creative endeavour. We are adding to, discarding from, rethinking about, acting upon, etc. what we have done to make it better, unsure of what will emerge.

Muy bueno!!!!

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 2015 5:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas. 

Katie Catania's curator insight, August 5, 2015 9:10 AM

What skills do learners need today to be prepared to be a leader as they move through school and into careers? Google commissioned a study and this post provides a short video that discusses key findings as well as a link to the final report, Driving the Skills Agenda: Preparing Students for the Future.

The Executive Summary provides a number of key findings, including the ones listed below. (The text below is quoted from the report.)

* Problem solving, team working and communication are the skills that are currently most in demand in the workplace.

* Education systems are not providing enough of the skills that students and the workplace need.

* Some students are taking it into their own hands to make up for deficiencies within the education system.

* Technology is changing teaching, but education systems are keeping up with the transformation rather than leading it.

The full report provides additional information, including a number of visuals as well as case studies. As educators it is important that we consider the skills our learners will need in the future, and this report provides insight into some of what will be needed.

Learning Needs a Context

"This is a follow up to a post I wrote, How Do We Learn? How Should We Learn?  The he purpose of these posts is to encourage educators to examine practices they take for granted, implement without deep reflection of their efficacy.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 24, 2015 10:12 PM

Is the memorization of information an effective way for learners to retain information? According to brain research the answer would be no. It is critical that connections be made. This post by Jackie Gerstein discusses the need for:

* Context

* Increase context and relevancy

In the section on increasing context and relevancy you will find a visual of an Authentic Learning Matrix as well as a number of links to additional resources.

We know that students are now seeing videos as components of online testing. Most students know strategies to use when reading text, but what works best with videos? This post provides 40 comprehension strategies that you may want to teach in your classroom.

The post begins with a short exploration of text and videos and then explores the interaction between video and text. The comprehension strategies are divided into four sections (information below quoted from the text):

* Before viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* During viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

* After viewing comprehension strategies that promote understanding of video and streaming content.

Each of these sections has ten questions that provide anchor strategies. For example, the first section (before viewing) includes Anchor Strategies: Viewing Purpose, Preview, Predict, Connect
