Here is the compiled list of presentations by art eduction list members.
Hi Judy and all,
Wow, thanks for compiling the list; going through the online conference
schedule is hard on the eyes and the head.
I hope you don't mind my belated addition:
Floor Discovery Learning in the Choice Artroom/ALL
Presented by: Clyde Gaw with Clark Fralick, Kathy Douglas, Diane
Wed 5:00 PM to 5:50 PM Curriculum & Instruction Williford Room C, 3rd.
"Digital video, imagery and student created electronic portfolios will
provide evidence of cognitive benefits from discovery learning generated
within the choice based art education concept.
Nothing in education is more powerful than authentic, student centered
learning experiences constructed from the bottom up. Experimentation
with materials and techniques that generate compelling works of art,
augmented with self-reflection, contribute significantly to the
development of imagination and intellectual growth. Discovery learning
in the choice art room is not a haphazard, random process but is
cultivated by the teacher with carefully prepared learning centers and
daily presentations of art lessons. Choice allows student's ownership
of their art experiences from conception to completion with teacher
acting as classroom manager, environmental designer, art expert,
facilitator, and mentor.
Four veteran choice practitioners invite you into their virtual
classrooms to examine how discovery learning is facilitated within
their programs. Art examples, interviews, electronic portfolios and
classroom footage will be showcased in this presentation along with a
discussion of discovery learning and it's implications for creative
growth in the visual arts curriculum."
