POSTA SILENZIOSA 06/2024

Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc., coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’

Sign up here if you want to receive Posta Silenziosa.

Originally given as the John Dewey Lecture for 2002, Stanford University. Read more … WikiPedia …


Wat kan het onderwijs van de kunsten leren ? Elliot W. Eisner stelt dat de specifieke denkvormen die vereist zijn voor het creëren van kunstwerken niet alleen van belang zijn voor wat leerlingen doen, maar voor nagenoeg alles wat we doen, van het vormgeven van curricula, het onderwijzen zelf, tot het ontwerpen van de omgevingen waarin leerlingen en leraars leven. Origineel uitgesproken in 2002 als John Dewey Lecture aan de universiteit van Stanford. Lees meer … WikiPedia …
