Unveiling the Canvas of Change: An Interactive Keynote on Transforming Education

"Teaching is political". We'll embark on a transformative journey through the landscape of contemporary education, challenging the alignment of our practices with a past that no longer aligns with our rapidly evolving future.

To fully grasp the present, we must first understand the historical context that has contributed to the barriers hindering cognitive development in education. We'll shed light on how these historical legacies continue to shape and perpetuate systems of harm within our educational systems.

But our talk doesn't stop at highlighting the problems. Instead, it will illuminate actionable steps we can take to create cultures of thinking that transform both educators and students alike. We'll explore the pivotal role of the arts in bridging the gap between the abstract world of thinking and our shared and personal cultures, paving the way for a more inclusive and dynamic educational landscape.

We can do the work of navigating the complex intersection of politics, history, and culture in education, and use fresh perspectives and concrete strategies to pave the path for a brighter, more equitable future in learning and teaching.

Attendee Results:

  • Learn how to use creative dialogue, gesture and character development as proposed actions for embodied learning.
  • Activate the use of thinking protocols in the classroom to explore history, art and hard conversations.
  • Strategies for creative practice
  • Practices in creating a culture of thinking.

Unlocking Your Inner Artist: Transforming Education with Creativity

There was a time when Mariah, a dedicated teacher, felt stifled by rigid lesson plans, losing her passion for teaching and leaving her students with uninspiring learning experiences. However, everything changed when Mariah embraced her creative spirit, inspired by the legacy of teachers before her. This shift in mindset transformed her teaching approach, fostering critical thinking, promoting inclusivity, and advancing equity in her classroom.

Can classrooms become hubs where creativity and critical thinking become essential for student success? In 2022, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) introduced creativity as a new global assessment criterion. This begs the question: Can the United States prepare its students to compete in a future that demands creativity?

Explore Mariah's journey and insights, which can revolutionize classroom teaching practices and ignite creativity throughout a school. Don't miss this opportunity to unlock your inner artist and witness the tangible improvements in your students' learning experiences.
