University of the Basque Country, E.U. Magisterio (SPAIN)
This approach aims to offer a project design that enhances creativity as well as the motivation of the students of the subject of artistic education in secondary education, while the acquired competencies listed in the official curriculum for this stage, and students are new to the knowledge of their environment.
Studies on the subject agree the importance of creativity for the full development of the person, while point towards intrinsic motivation as essential factor of it. However, they aren't easy to empower in the context of the classroom due to a large extent, normal educational practices which, with its closed nature, constitute a limitation to one as the other. In addition, factors such as the lack of preparation of the teacher or the minor part of this group attaches to the subject they are holding the delivery of it mainly theoretical way, on the basis of general-interest books that do not suit the specific needs of the group and through practices that stand out by not promoting nor experimentation and creativity – indispensable to our principles understand this matter - and by contrast, the rote repetition and copy of examples given.
As a result this problem arises educational solutions raised with a more open than the traditional didactic units character and which on the basis of the interests of students, give this group a greater freedom of action and decision than usual.
This is precisely the basis that is emerging project raised in this paper, entitled "The value of the everyday." "Aesthetics and meanings of our environment." This approach begins in the near the student's environment so knowledge come in relation to their daily reality, lies in the construction of knowledge by their own involved through research and the decision-making process changing the passive role of the student body by one active and taking as a starting point the skills available to the people and not of their deficits. We work on the formal content of the subject - i.e., the formal elements of visual language, reading and production of images and theoretical contents about art - and restricted codes and the identity of those involved are respected to enable multiple answers or solutions by integrating the dialogical process as a fundamental principle of evaluation methodologies and dividends this in a sequential manner, reinforcing both the motivation and creativity.
Your thread is the heritage of the urban environment, understood this as the set of all artistic demonstrations surrounding young people today and the methodology used includes sensory tours, iconoteca, research and critical analysis, realization of art dossiers or creation of own work and exhibition of the same.
