About using the resources

ARTinEd is now open to primary schools across Europe (ages 6 to 11) to pilot the resources that have been prepared and tested. You can use the resources now and in to the future, it is important for the project that we know you are using them. All the information you need is available on the project website in the resources section http://www.artined.eu/resources.html . If you would like to be involved please complete the form below.

 

What you will do

The project has made a primary level course on the environment that includes different art forms. Each school can use one or as many parts of the course as they wish.

 

You will need to request that a page is created on ARTinED Wiki for your school so you share in text, pictures and videos the work your students have completed. Just write to joel.josephson@joel-josephson.org with the name of the school, after you register on the wiki (full name please). http://artined-eu.wikispaces.com/home

It is a known fact that children respond more quickly to pictures, images rather than the text matter. Teaching with something innovative idea enhances the child's wisdom and broadens the area of thinking. Implementing the arts along with the text books in primary schools could be very helpful to improve creativity, engage and also inspire children to learn. 

Thank you Dorothy, I totally agree.

A level and IB

So, I'm new to this network- hello! I've been teaching English in UK schools for 20 years and am convinced that current practice is not best practice. The curriculum offered seems very limited- very British- and teaching methods remain very 'traditional'. I'd love to hear from anyone with experience in teaching the IB- particularly anyone who's taught both in the UK and overseas. Was the transition tough?
