Mejorando el desempeño de estudiantes a través del arte.

Les comunico en esta noticia por dos motivos, el primero que es trabajo de mi querida colega y amiga Karla Hernando (como podrán ver en la imagen mas abajo) y en segundo lugar porque trata de un tema que he estado explorando sobre iniciativas de cómo llevar el arte u otras formas de pensamiento: como “Design Thinking”al salón de clase desde la educación básica.

Este trabajo es desarrolado por en Cape Consults en Chicago. Ellos son consultores en educación y su lema es “mejorando la escuela a través del arte”. El proyecto en específico se denomina “HABLA” CAPE- Community engagement Project, si quieren ver los trabajos del proyecto vayan a: http://pd.capeweb.org/view_units.php?id=205&page=tab5

  • Rich and challenging arts teaching and learning?
  • Meaningful academic connections across the curriculum?

See what happened at Innovations High School:

After several sleepless nights of animating with a crew of over 20 people, the Joy of Books was born. Music composed especially for the short by Grayson Matthews. See many more books here.
