 The ARTS


Lecture 8


You should come prepared to discuss Teaching Approaches: A framework for thinking about technology pedagogy, and specifically:

Research in closed or open design briefs;
From research to practice;
Designing pedagogical diversity; and
Tinkering activities designed to enhance girls' technological capabilities.


Lecture 8


You should come prepared to discuss Integration and the Arts, and specifically:

To integrate or not to integrate, that is the question;
Various models of integration;
Integrated arts programs, multi-literacies, Productive Pedagogies and Multiple Intelligences;
How do Multiple Intelligences relate to the classroom;
Four approaches to using Multiple Intelligences in the classroom;
The arts, Multiple Intelligences and literacy; and 
Syntegrating the arts and Multiple Intelligences to explore colour.
 

Tutorial 8


In your tutorial you will undertake a variety of technology activities including:

ACTIVITY T9.1    Closed design challenges

What are the advantages and disadvantages of closed design challenges?

ACTIVITY T9.2    Open design challenges

What are the advantages and disadvantages of open design challenges?

ACTIVITY T9.3    Thinking about technology lessons

Briefly develop an example of a technology leson you have seen in a school:

  • What was the intended learning outcome?
  • Who decided what was to be made/evaluated - the teacher of the children?
  • What was the role of the teacher?
  • What was the role of the students?
  • Was it part of an ongoing lesson sequence or a one-off experience?

ACTIVITY T9.4    Developing girls' technological capabilities

The introduction of the tinkering table (pages 198-202) in the preschool and the sequence of technological learning activities over ten weeks with clocks  were designed to enhance girls' technological capabilities. Yet this goal was not achieved. How could the teachers have met this goal?








  

Tutorial 8


In your tutorial you will undertake a variety of Arts activities including:

ACTIVITY A8.1

Develop a series of learning experiences in dot point form listing how you could use an artwork or song to achieve:

  • outcomes in another key learning area (service connection)

  • outcomes in art or music in another key learning area (symmetric correlation)

  • outcomes in several key learning areas, to enhance learning about a theme or concept and develop to develop generic skills (syntegration).

ACTIVITY A8.2

Identify the eight Multiple Intelligences and list ways of including them in the arts classroom.  

ACTIVITY A8.3

Plan a brief unit of work based on a theme or concept to include all art forms, other key learning areas, if relevant, and the eight Multiple Intelligences. Note which productive pedagogies are developed and used in the programme.
