The Secret Life of Objects - A Cross-curricular Creative Approach to Teaching and Learning

A learning resource for teachers and educators which can be adapted for primary or secondary use and used across the curriculum with great results. This creative strategy has been devised for the Arts and Education Network: South East Wales by Karin Molson, Learning Manager at Monmouthshire Museums Service, Lucy-Ann Pickering, Learning Manager at The Royal Mint Museum, and Mark Batchelder , Learning Officer at The Winding House Museum. This pack aims to provide teachers with the following: – Stimulus to use and incorporate objects regularly into teaching and learning practice – A framework for the analysis of objects in museum and classroom contexts that does not rely on extensive subject knowledge – Creative techniques for critically looking and investigating objects including opportunities for sensory engagement – Bridging techniques to draw out the creative character of objects, either through mind mapping or character profiling – A range of potential creative outputs inspired by objects – A range of strategies/techniques for getting the most out of a museum visit or using objects in the classroom The Secret Life of Objects resource pack contains activity ideas for engaging with objects, an Object Investigation Framework (OIF), exemplars and ideas for creative outputs. The resource uses a simple step-by-step process that will lead you and your pupils from initial object engagement to creative activity.

Australian Homework Project

Australian Homework Project

Students choose from nine homework tasks linked with the topic, Australia. They choose at least one activity from each section (English, Creative, Investigative). Designed to be completed over a period of a half term. There are a wealth of open ended tasks that encourage the student to take ownership over their homework, with the option of completing more tasks if they wish to. The other benefit of the projects are that they allow for independent learning and encourage parents to get involved if they wish to.

African art - Textiles -  Kente

African art - Textiles - Kente

African art - textiles Kente (interwoven strips with geometric patterning) Explains what Kente is and what each of the colours mean and what it represents. Link to a you tube video to watch first. Then there are screen shots of the video and step by step instructions in order to create their own version of kente by weaving strips of coloured paper and then wool with a thick needle. The children have to consider what colours they are going to use and what shapes to add to the piece. This could possibly be two lessons depending on how quick the children complete the activity.

www.school-of-thought.co.uk

As a Fine Art and English post graduate of Liverpool Hope University I have developed an educational website that focuses on Learning & Teaching methodology. Its main aim is to develop and create independent learning and thinking, which can be used across many educational settings such as: Schools, Colleges, Universities, Adult Education and other educational settings. My approach has been to develop a more inclusive and holistic approach to learning when acquiring knowledge. For example, as an innovative learning practitioner, I have created digital resources that build on technical, practical and theoretical awareness and attainment ability; plus I have designed concepts geared towards expanding cognitive learning or thought strategies, that are specifically focused on analysis, both with research and the development towards personal concepts or ideas. The website offers a broad range of materials which highlights various areas of practical and critical theoretical concepts which include cognitive skills relating to Art and Design. The main aim of School of Thought is to bring together the often disparate worlds of Art Theory and Art Practical, enabling the learner to make much more informed outcomes, whatever their theme or topic may be. Using the creative thinking skills that these learning resources provide, as well as the practical, technical and critical theory recorded workshops, the learner is able to generate a wider range of outcomes and importantly to be able to discuss them using in-depth terminology. The main objective and purpose is to develop and create independent learning, thinking and a personal response towards creative outcomes. Ultimately, it is to enhance the experience of independent learning and to create a personal response towards progression between the key stages of development.
