Art TEAMS: Nurturing Educators Who Integrate Art, Core Subjects and Culturally Responsive Teaching to Support Students in Becoming Makers of Change
HyeonJin Yoon, Lorinda Rice, Kimberley D'Adamo
The Teaching with Arts and Emerging Media (Art TEAMS) project will leverage New Media Arts to support student engagement and self-directed learning across the curriculum.
Building on a four-year professional learning framework pilot project in Lincoln Public Schools, the project team will create a professional development program in emerging media arts-integrated learning for current teachers to support innovations in teaching in Nebraska public schools.
Professional development will focus on teacher mastery in three core themes: Aligning emerging media teaching to foster integrated learning; centering critical and metacognitive thinking; and building classroom communities that embrace students’ cultures and voices through promoting teachers and students as co-researchers.
The overarching goal is to disrupt deficit-based teaching models currently embedded in classrooms and create collective learning spaces that will increase student engagement in emergent media arts, connected and self-directed learning.
