Face Britain: The UK's largest art gallery - 4 views

  •  
    The goal of this site is to have a self portrait of every child in Britain. If you're in the UK, you'll want to participate. I like that there are instructions for parents and teachers because sometimes students are at a school that doesn't "have time" for such things. Cool Project.

  • One of the beliefs at the core of CTL is “Learning about, in and through the arts is a vital dimension of effective classroom practice”. When CTL staff engage with clients (students, teachers, and administrators), we intentionally use the arts to deliver the content.

    Love this dialogue-
    quote
    I feel like part of my job as an artist and educator (and specifically the combination of the two) is:
    - To be a prodder and poker of conventional thought.
    - To be a student advocate.
    - To think about what schools are for, really, in the long run; Is their purpose to prepare students for the way the world is now? To prepare students for the way the world will be? To prepare students for the way the world should be? To prepare students to change the world? To teach students how to follow rules? To teach students how to meaningfully break the rules? To teach students how to re-write the rules? To teach students about what interests them as individuals? To teach students about what we (the teachers) think should interest them? To teach students how to take tests? To teach students how to teach themselves. etc……To do all of these things at the same time?
