You have 5 words. Why is #artsed important for children to have in schools? Can you narrow to 5 words?
A few people in our wonderful (and powerful) PLN replied. Here are some of their tweets (including mine):
RT @elephantsgerald: Complex, open-ended solutions start here.
RT @markbrumley Top of Bloom’s Taxonomy…Creating! That’s 5 words!
RT @eliza_peterson: Opening minds and strengthening skills.
RT @mlaffs Enrichment, expansion, exploration, connections and *test scores* (counts as 1!)
RT @elephantsgerald: Creation: the summit of learning.
RT @cybraryman1 Improves motivation concentration, confidence, & teamwork
Synthesizing and Summarizing – another important skill learned through artsed – is shown here as we put our own interpretation on the benefits of arts education (and of course I add integration.) And yet, it is all good, it is all uplifting, and it is all for the betterment of growing and learning.
I would love to continue this list of 5 words here. So please, answer Joan’s petition to put into 5 words why arts education (and integration) is important for children to have in school.
What are your 5 words?
