teaching for artistic behavior How to Use Recycled Tech Devices as Learning Tools The idea of dissection in the classroom is nothing new. Science teachers have been delighting (and occasionally sickening) students for decades by giving them hands-on experience with organisms and tools. What is new, however, is the movement to create un-making spaces in the classroom. Giving kids access to old, broken-down electronics and a safe place to take them apart as they seek to answer why and how things work is an effective and environmentally-friendly teaching technique. Makerspaces and Un-Makerspaces In a recent (excellent) Edutopia article, fifth-grade teacher Scott Bedley describes how he created an un-makerspace. However, Bedley also spoke with the makers at the Bay Area Maker Faire and realized that many of them took things apart when they were kids, as he did. How to Create an Un-Makerspace Bedley shares the seven basic steps that he took to create his un-makerspace.

The Arts & Crafts of Books | List Off Books have been an inspiration to the masses since the dawn of…books, and it’s no surprise that these inspired people would eventually come back and show their appreciation by slicing their creative thoughts into the pages and bindings. The knife work is meticulous. These artists will set aside days, weeks and months to create ideas and images that could have been done in hours using another medium. For the manlier folk out there, there are some skulls, gun fights and sea monsters. Like this: Like Loading...
Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) TAB-Choice Art at McAuliffe Elementary Lärare med studentcentrerad pedagogik använder IKT mer innovativt Lärarens pedagogisk grundsyn påverkar starkt hur de använder digitala medier i sin undervisning. Det visar en ny avhandling av Sadaf Salavati, Linnéuniversitetet, Use of Digital Technologies in Education: The Complexity of Teachers’ Everyday Practice. Genom att följa och intervjua flera lärare i sin vardag och intervjuer med skolledare har Sadaf Salavati försökt belysa komplexiteten i lärarens vardag och digitaliseringens utmaningar. Lärare som har en studentcentrerad pedagogisk syn är mer benägna att använda digitala verktyg på ett innovativt sätt en lärare som tillämpar mer traditionell pedagogik. En artikel på Forskning.se, Lärare med studentcentrerad pedagogik använder oftare digital teknik, summerar avhandlingen så här: - Resultatet i avhandlingen påvisar och förstärker tidigare forskning som visat på komplexiteten i undervisningssituationer.

Teaching for Artistic Behavior: Art is Not Easy Ha! I love the way our innermost thoughts work their way to the surface when we create. In this case, it would be this student's struggle to create artwork that matches his standard. I'm now midway through my first rotation of Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) based lesson plans. Currently, four of my classes (the 6th and 7th grades) are working on TAB rotations. I thought it would be good to share my thoughts on this process. In the event you don't know, TAB is, ultimately, a grass-roots organization that recognizes and supports the validity of choice-based arts education. Some students work at the window while others mix color palettes at their seats. If you've read here for any length of time, you'll know that I'm very interested in how the brain works when we learn. For one, choice based arts education? Secondly, giving students choices takes a lot of planning. Thirdly, TAB ain't for sissies. Look ma, we're engaged! But, then came THIS year. Yeah, I'm crazy. 1. What about you?
