It is my honour to present at this year’s Ontario Art Education Association (OAEA) Conference in Barrie on November 7, 2015. I will present some practical ideas to get middle school teachers and students to start using iterative, or structured, workflows more often, to glean the data that students need to continuously improve their projects.
Embedding a data collection and analysis phase within a creative or inquiry cycle (or problem based learning) is critical to moving students toward a mastery mindset, and sets them up to become more resilient and independent learners.
“Following a structured approach to developing new ideas is critical for having a shot at actually being able to measure impact and value.”
