THE ROLE OF THE ARTS IN EDUCATION: USES OF VISUAL ASPECTS OF MULTIMODAL KNOWLEDGE

D. Alvarez-Rodriguez, A. Bajardi

University of Granada (SPAIN)
This research studies the educational contributions of new technologies and their fusion with traditional methodologies in the teaching and learning process in the field of art education in high school.

We proposed the use of these new and traditional tools and content to a group of students of 4th ESO with an "Introduction to Research and Innovation in Secondary Education" project in Granada.

The general objective of this project is to incorporate students in the process of Arts -Based- Research and to develop the ability to interact with reality as an artistic process, and encourage reflection on visual culture and its languages​​, including traditional and new media. This project was developed in four sessions that were conducted between the Faculty of Education at the University of Granada and the Centro José Guerrero, and consisted of a series of workshops based on different aspects of art, especially contemporary art.

We proposed examples and creative activities involving the use of commonly technological tools for students, such as mobile phones, internet and emails, but traditional methods such as painting, drawing and installations were also integrated to discover that, through the different representative and self-representing possibilities is possible to study and create visual culture.

Through various exercises and aesthetic experiences we provide the basis for reading and managing of visual culture, developing reasoning, observation and comparison skills. The students, their families and their teachers showed great interest and enthusiasm for the project, and they showed the intention to continue art-educational relationships with the Faculty of Education Sciences, and the Center Guerrero Granada.

We think that integration of new technology in art education programs, and its fusion with traditional methods are essential to form in visual culture and to not produce a gap between education systems and the daily lives of students outside the educational contexts. For this reason we encourage researchers and art educators to reflect on these important educational needs.
