THE USE OF ART, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY AS PRAXIS IN INDIGENOUS EDUCATION

S. Paterson, I. Edmondson

University of Tasmania (AUSTRALIA)
This presentation will highlight some successful projects which have been used with Australian indigenous students in remote locations in the Australian outback. The projects use practical experiences to positively engage students who have difficulty with mainstream literacy and indeed education in general. The use of art, design and technology as a subject discipline respects the past and present cultural practices of Australian aboriginal society and has been used purposely to help these indigenous children make cognitive and emotional links with learning, which in turn builds confidence and a positive approach to successful and inclusive education. This research draws upon the research of Pierre Bourdieu and his vision of symbolic capital, and how this idea when used in a co-constructivist educational context can develop relevant pedagogical and curriculum knowledge and understandings for indigenous students, parents and teachers. The research will highlight some perceptions of students and educators who were involved with these indigenous projects.
