Emergent Curriculum Infused with Empathy

The Ashoka Community's curator insight, October 17, 2013 2:43 PM

Co-creation means that the degree of control and authority purported by standardized curricula is lost, but control is replaced by relationships, community, empathy, and creativity. And the increased flexibility gives the children room to exercise agency over their learning, thus building independence, as well as confidence and courage in their abilities as leaders.

Ashoka US – Make It Bright

Ashoka US – Make It Bright | Movement & Dance | Scoop.it

Ashoka identifies and supports people who see the world not as it is, but as it could be; who seek to change a broken system instead of letting it continue. These people come in many different forms: they’re social entrepreneurs and business leaders, they’re journalists and storytellers, they’re parents and young people, they’re college students and teachers. What they have in common is a commitment to turning today’s dark spots into bright spots. We call them changemakers. And we’re working to find, connect, and multiply them at unprecedented rates across the U.S. and around the world.

Artists are role models for innovation in our societies, along with scientists and entrepreneurs, and thus it is not surprising that many see arts education as a means of developing skills critical for innovation.

Watching dance makes your muscles think they're grooving

Watching dance makes your muscles think they're grooving | Movement & Dance | Scoop.it

In a study published in the open access journal PLoS ONE, researchers found that watching live performances of dance resulted in muscle-specific motor responses in viewers, even when those viewers had no formal training in these movements. Study participants were either frequent dance spectators of ballet, Indian dance, or ‘‘novices’’ who never watched dance.

 

 The so-called “empathic” ability of participants was also tested.

As firm believers in the many benefits of arts-based learning, IAR strives to be a leader in providing easy-to-use, adaptable resources for teachers and students and hands-on interactive workshops, which allow for effective, engaging and memorable learning experiences.

Custom curriculum design has become our latest venture, as IAR has been contracted to create a first-of-its-kind dance education program for private schools in India. September 2012 will mark the launch of this program as Kim kicks it off with two weeks of private training for the instructors in Bangalore.

Fall 2012 will also mark the launch of our first US products.

Marcel Bassachs's insight:

Led by Dance Ireland (IE) in partnership with CSC /Bassano del Grappa (IT), Dance House Lemesos (CY), Mercat de les Flors Barcelona (ES) and TanzHaus nrw Düsseldorf (DE), LÉIM is a 2-year cooperation project financed by the EU Culture 2007-2013 Programme.

Ten participants (2 from each country) are invited to learn, research, exchange and implement their dance projects while interacting within new cultural contexts. Together, and with the support of the host organisations and their artistic communities, they will experience best practice, share ideas and create new models of working, in order to address the core leadership needs of dance artists and dance institutions.

Uniquely, selected participants are free to pursue their own ideas within the context of LÉIM, which offers professional development opportunities including; training, mentoring, support and encouragement, as well as challenge and practical engagement.

Participants will engage in 3 different modules:

MODULE A: Training sessions

MODULE B: Work placements

MODULE C: Project implementation

Built upon principles of sharing and exchange of artistic and managerial approaches in the development of dance practices, participants will have access to an extensive international network of artists, cultural operators and institutions through which they will get the chance to learn and present themselves as active cultural players. Mobility, transfer of knowledge, exchange of information and exposure to different artistic communities, audiences and local contexts are the main principles upon which this professional development opportunity is being implemented.

Throughout the programme, participants will be supported and guided by different selected mentors, both internal to the organisations and external

The Educational Value of Field Trips

The Educational Value of Field Trips | Movement & Dance | Scoop.it

If schools are de-emphasizing culturally enriching field trips, has anything been lost as a result? Surprisingly, we have relatively little rigorous evidence about how field trips affect students. The research presented here is the first large-scale randomized-control trial designed to measure what students learn from school tours of an art museum.
