Active Cooperation on the Development of Result 1 and Result 2
We have been working intensively on the preparation of the first two results of the SPACES project, i.e.
interactive textbook for students and set of scenarios for teachers. Thanks to the fruitful cooperation of all
partners we have managed to develop a coherent and attractive concept of both results and we have
already started working on the development of the content of individual educational materials.
Within the framework of the first result, detailed instructions have been developed on how to edit the content
of the textbook “How to learn creatively? The addressees of the handbook – students – will be able to gain
knowledge about creative ways of learning thanks to various challenges, exercises or interesting facts.
Within the framework of the hypertext reading concept, the textbook concept is based on the abandonment
of linear transmission in favour of a modular publication structure. The textbook will include not only texts but
also infographics, videos or links to interesting and useful web applications.
The second result – a manual for educators entitled How to teach creatively? – has been developed through
intensive consultations between partners and exchange of experience in the field of didactics. Concepts and
assumptions for lesson scenarios using various concepts and approaches to teaching creativity in both
formal and informal education have already been developed. Activities aimed at preparation of particular
scenarios have also begun.
All teams, responsible for elaboration of particular results, act dynamically for the common goal, that is
elaboration of interesting and innovative solutions in the scope of education of creativity and creative
Art and Spaces Project
Art is an expression of creativity.
What Do We Mean by “Arts”?
The arts encompass the visual art forms of drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, electronic media, design, and video as well as the performing arts, which include dance, storytelling, poetry, music, film, and theater.
Learning through art covers the arts and creative process to support improvements in the executive function of the brain in young people and creative confidence in their teachers. Our intellectual outputs 1 and 2 comprise session plans, input from artists and creative practitioners, digital assessments, inspiring and educative podcasts and videos and technical support throughout.
They are set of fun and energising activities using many art based techniqgues those support improvements in cognitive function, working memory and inhibitory control in the young people to benefit achievement, collaboration, confidence and engagement with and enjoyment of learning.
The intellectual outputs are valuable and imaginative addition to learning and teaching strategies for raising attainment, improving well-being and supporting inclusion.
Involving interdisciplinary methods through art, our intellectual outputs encourage teachers and learners to try new ideas, build confidence, collaborate, problem-solve and communicate. They place high value on reflective activity, social, emotional and intellectual engagement as well as developing creativity skills.
“I think of art as the highest level of creativity. To me, it is one of the greatest sources of enjoyment.”
