  • Make your move: Exploring a pedagogic toolkit for creative development and global learning in primary education

Pulley, Robert, Hall, Ashley and Burkitt, Esther, 2017, Conference or Workshop, Make your move: Exploring a pedagogic toolkit for creative development and global learning in primary education at Learn X Design, London, 27th-30th June 2017.

Abstract or Description:

The purpose of Theatre of the Imagination® is to develop a methodology which helps creative development through design and making in primary education. Objectives supporting this aim include: the development of personal agency through metacognition; the development of creative skills and ideas through practical workshops; and engagement with global learning goals through discussion and storytelling. A series of Constructivist Learning Design workshops have generated tentative findings that suggest design and making can help students to achieve these objectives. An analysis of qualitative data arising from the process of Participatory Action Research indicates that the global citizenship agenda, in tandem with design and making, helps to nurture empathy.
