How the Arts Can Save Education: Transforming Teaching, Learning, and Instruction with Erica Halverson

Education is in a time of profound change; the arts offer us a way to reimagine what good learning and teaching are and how to design learning environments for all kids. In this talk, Dr. Erica Halverson, Professor of Curriculum & Instruction, describes how the arts can save education by providing new models for learning that embrace the assets that kids bring to the classroom. She uses her own arts organization, Whoopensocker, as a model for how to reframe learning as acts of metacognitive representation, identity development, and collaboration—and lots and lots of joy.
