Teaching art or teaching to think like an artist? | Cindy Foley | TEDxColumbus
What is the purpose and value of Art education in the 21st Century? Foley makes the case the Art’s critical value is to develop learners that think like Artists which means learners who are creative, curious, that seek questions, develop ideas, and play. For that to happen society will need to stop the pervasive, problematic and cliché messaging that implies that creativity is somehow defined as artistic skill. This shift in perception will give educators the courage to teach for creativity, by focusing on three critical habits that artist employ, 1. Comfort with Ambiguity, 2. Idea Generation, and 3. Transdisciplinary Research. This change can make way for Center’s for Creativity in our schools and museums where ideas are king and curiosity reigns. Cindy Meyers Foley is the Executive Assistant Director and Director of Learning and Experience at the Columbus Museum of Art. Foley worked to reimagine the CMA as a 21st century institution that is transformative, active, and participatory. An institution that impacts the health and growth of the community by cultivating, celebrating and championing creativity. Foley envisioned and led the charge to open the 18,000 sq. ft. Center for Creativity in 2011. In 2013, the museum received the National Medal for Museums in recognition of this work. Foley guest edited and wrote chapters for Intentionality and the Twenty-First-Century Museum, for the summer 2014 Journal of Museum Education. In 2012, Foley received the Greater Columbus Arts Council Community Arts Partnership award for Arts Educator. She was a keynote speaker for the OAEA (Ohio Art Education Association) 2012 Conference. She is on the Faculty of Harvard University’s Future of Learning Summer Institute. Foley is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Prior to joining the Museum, she was with the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Maine College of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Wexner Center for the Arts. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

What's a Gear to Do?
In this episode of O Wow Moments featuring Mr. O from the Children's Museum of Houston, we are exploring the Gears Table. Gears are a simple machine, which means they help you do work, but they can't do work for you. That means there is a trade off -- you can either have more speed or more force, but not both. Whether you get more speed or more force depends on how you arrange your gears.

Can colorful blocks prep preschoolers for a future in math?
A 4-year-old lines up colorful blocks in a row: red-red-green-red-red-green. Her teacher encourages her to replicate the pattern using soft toys: bear-bear-monkey-bear-bear-monkey. Another child uses blocks to build a doorway, figuring out how to balance blocks on top of others. This isn’t just play. Patterning and spatial activities like block play are simple yet powerful activities in which preschoolers develop early math skills, according to a growing body of research by Vanderbilt scholars. Bethany Rittle-Johnson, professor of psychology and human development, and Erica Zippert, post-doctoral scholar, at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College of education and human development, are the lead authors of Institute of Education Sciences-funded study. It was recently published by Early Childhood Research Quarterly. In the study they assessed 73 preschool children’s repeating patterning skills, spatial skills, general cognitive skills and math knowledge at the beginning of the pre-kindergarten year, and re-assessed math knowledge near the end of the school year. They found that patterning and spatial skills were related and were each unique predictors of children’s math knowledge at the same time point and seven months later. “Because math knowledge begins to develop at a young age to varying degrees, it is imperative that we identify foundational cognitive and academic skills that contribute to this development and explain its variation,” Rittle-Johnson said. “This study provides further evidence that activities at home and school curricula should reflect the potential role of patterning and spatial skills for math knowledge development, and be included in early math standards.” So why do patterning activities promote later math learning? “Patterning skills involve deducing underlying rules in the sequence of objects, and may also promote some counting skills,” Zippert said. “Because repeating patterning tasks do not require prior number knowledge, even preschool children can deduce underlying rules in the patterns. Developing such skills with repeating patterns at a young age may support their noticing and use of patterns and rules in numbers as they acquire basic numeracy knowledge.” And spatial skills are important too. Solving math problems often involves thinking about moving through space, so spatial skills may support math problem solving. “Both are important for preparing students for a workforce that demands more mathematical literacy than ever before,” Zippert said. “Preschool is the ideal time to lay the foundation for math learning, and best of all, math learning can occur through playful activities.” Peabody’s Katherine L. Boice also collaborated on the study. The research was supported by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, through Grant R305A160132.

The video particularly focuses on the need for organisation before a lesson and how the teacher might optimise the learning and assessment of the children during the activities. The video is illustrated with a variety of classroom examples. Types of Organisation 1: Whole Class - Introduction, practical activity, sharing science books, demonstration, drawing the lesson together 2: Group Work - Groups doing different practical activities, circus of different activities, one group only doing science Think about - Making the lesson relevant and stimulating. What needs to be done before the lesson. What equipment is available. How can it be organised. The childrens experience of group work. Time available. What will you do in the lesson The organisation you will choose will depend on - What you want the children to learn. What experience the class already have of group work. The time, equipment and materials available Your planning should include - What you need to collect and set out. Introducing the work. What the children will do. Monitoring and assessing their learning. Helping children of different abilities. Concluding the lesson The video was written and produced by Tina Jarvis, Frankie McKeon and Jon Shears from SCIcentre and University of Leicester ITS Multimedia Services.

Martin Luther King Jr  - Teaching Preschool at Home
The Same yet Different: Celebrating Inclusion Every January, students all across the United States learn about Martin Luther King Jr.'s work and his dream for our country, but how do you teach this to preschool students?  This lesson provides ideas on how to introduce this hero and his life to young students. Discrimination and changing the world can be very difficult to explain to young children. Ask your child if they know what discrimination is. Expand on their answer by explaining that discrimination is treating someone differently because they are not like you. Then explain that Martin Luther King Jr. was trying to end discrimination based on the color of someone's skin, but it is also discrimination if you treat someone differently because of his or her sex, religion, intelligence, physical challenges, or ability. Give your child concrete examples by acting out situations. Some possible examples include: "You can't play with us. We don't like boys!" "My mom says I can't play with you because you don't go to church." "My mom says I can't play with you because you have two Dads."  Young children aren't ready for all the details of the message, but they can understand the heart of it.  This lesson can help make some of these concepts easier to comprehend. http://www.floridaearlylearning.com/sites/www/Uploads/files/Oel%20Resources/Sample%20Lessons/TheSameyetDifferentCelebratingInclusionLessonPlan.pdf For more information visit:  http://www.naeyc.org/blogs/honoring-martin-luther-king-day-with-young-children http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/parent-child/teaching-kids-about-martin-luther-king-jr Great Hope Preschool is closed Monday January 16th, 2017, so why not join us at St. Leo to celebrate MLK Day?
