Fostering Cross-Curricular Key Competences for Creativity and Innovation   Diversity and Cooperation –  Cultural Education in Austria and in Europe Peer Learning Activity in Austria, Vienna 10th of November 2008 Michael Wimmer
To have in mind „In the interests of the (old) industrial economy and of academic achievement, we have succumbed to a partial form of education. We have vasted and even destroyed a great deal of what people had to offer because we couldn‘t see the value of it.  Therefore we need a new conception of human resources.  This is what the ideas about creativity are pointing at.  It is fundamentally a question of ecology“  (Ken Robinson)
When talking about creativity….. we are talking  about social inclusion „ There are many misconceptions about creativity. Creativity is not a separate faculty that some people have and others do not. It is a function of human intelligence.“ we are talking about school development  „ Creativity is a balance between freedom, authority, skill and speculation. It can be taught, but you have to loosen up the system to let it happen. You can‘t have creative learning without creative teaching.“  we are talking about diversity in democratic societies „ Creativity is the freedom to constantly see things from a different perspective.“
The European Year of Creativity and Innovation 2009 The aim is to promote creativity as a driver for innovation as a key factor for the development of personal, occupational and social competences and the well-being of all individuals in society.  Education and training systems should cater sufficiently   and at all appropriate levels for the development of key competences to support creativity and innovation.  Creativity is considered as an ability   needed to permit autonomous thought and independent behaviour, with a view to reaching innovative and original solutions in personal, occupational and social life. Creativity and innovation should be promoted in the perspective of "lifelong and lifewide" learning and participation. Taking as a reference the  Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning (2006/962/EC), in particular the competences regarding "sense of initiative and entrepreneurship" and "cultural awareness and expression“.
The  Year should highlight the following factors which can contribute to the promotion of creativity and innovation  providing an environment which stimulates innovation, flexibility and adaptability     to a rapidly changing world and creative management of diversity. All forms of innovation, including non-technological innovation should be taken into account providing an environment which stimulates aesthetic sensitivity, emotional  development, lateral thinking and intuition   and which fosters creativity in all children from the earliest stages of development, including pre-school care fostering creativity as a competence     which is transferable to a variety of occupational contexts   broadening access to culture and reducing disparities in access particularly during an individual's most formative years, so that the personal development of some children is not hindered
What has happened up to now -  1998 Conference “A Creative Culture” in Bregenz during the Austrian EU-    Presidency -  2001 Conference “A Must or a Muse” in Rotterdam  -  Since 2001 Culture-School-Network of civil servants from education and    cultural administrations -  2005 Recommendations of the European Council on key competencies for    lifelong learning -  2006 Conference “Cultural Education in Europe: A Contribution for Creativity,    Participation and Innovation” during the Austrian EU-Presidency - 2007 Creative Learning – Strategy for Arts and Culture in Education 2007 –    2010 - 2008 Creative Learning -  Summing up “Creative Partnerships”
Just to remember:  What do we mean by cross-curricular competencies? - intellectual competencies - methodological competencies - personal and social competencies - communication-related competencies
EU-Recommendations for Life Long and Life Wide Learning - communication in the mother tongue - communication in foreign languages - mathematical competence and basic competencies in science and    technology - digital competencies - learning to learn - social and civic competencies - sense of initiative and entrepreneurship  - cultural awareness and expression
What are we talking about when we are talking about cultural awareness and expression? “An awareness of local, national and European cultural heritage and their place in the world…appreciation and enjoyment of works of art…as well as self-expression…using one’s innate capacities….Cultural expression is essential to the development of creative skills, which can be transferred to a variety of professional contexts…understanding of one’s own culture…respect for diversity of cultural expression…A positive attitude also covers creativity, and the willingness to cultivate aesthetic capacity through artistic self-expression and participation in cultural life”
What’s about evidencies? - Or neurobiology has the answer!? -  the so-called Mozart-Effect - music and language learning - dance and non-verbal spacial skills - cultural education and social changes - the artists as entrepreneurs
Anne Bamford and the Wow!-Factor  based on a research for UNESCO   Learning in the arts – learning by the arts -  Creative Development   Partnerships between schools and cultural institutions are effective in    developing in pupils attributes of creative people -  Applying Creativity   Cultural education enables the development of good personal and social skills    (effective collaboration, maturity in their relationship with adults,…) -  Young Professionals   A significant number of pupils were motivated to    work directly in the creative industries -  Standards Achieved   Students improved in achievment in areas such as    literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology -  Personal Development and Well-Being   Improvement of pupils‘ motivation to actively take part -  Sustaining and Achieving   Arts and Cultural Education has long lasting effects    (Fe in changing cultural attitudes)
Elliot W. Eisner:  The Arts and the creation of mind  or  What education can learn from the Arts Arts education is about -  learning that there is   more than one answer   for solving a problem - learning that there are interrelations between content and form - learning about imagination, refining and using sensibilities - learning that relationships depend not only on facts   but on „somatic knowledge“ - learning to enjoy intrinsic satisfaction - learning that literal languages and quantifications are not the only means of    education
Howard Gardner:  The Arts and its extrinsic and intrinsic effects Artistic transfer   “ Ten meta-analysis showed that in most cases there was no basis for the claim that arts education improved school performance” Eight Studio Habits of Mind - Developing Craft - Engaging and persisting - Envisioning - Expressing - Observing - Reflecting - Stretching and exploring - Understanding the Arts world
Coming to an end….. Creativity  is core, not peripheral. Creativity  is about thinking, not just about feelings  (observation, envision, expression, reflection). Creativity  is another way to understand the world, it is as  important as the scientific way. Creativity  cultivates habits of mind, not just craft.
Just for further thinking:  What we urgently need - Creative leadership and management - Further development of the curricula - Organisation of partnerships - Documentation, monitoring and evulation - International exchange and co-operation   Thank you for your attention!

Fostering Cross-Curricular Key Competences for Creativity and Innovation

  • 1. Fostering Cross-Curricular Key Competences for Creativity and Innovation Diversity and Cooperation – Cultural Education in Austria and in Europe Peer Learning Activity in Austria, Vienna 10th of November 2008 Michael Wimmer
  • 2. To have in mind „In the interests of the (old) industrial economy and of academic achievement, we have succumbed to a partial form of education. We have vasted and even destroyed a great deal of what people had to offer because we couldn‘t see the value of it. Therefore we need a new conception of human resources. This is what the ideas about creativity are pointing at. It is fundamentally a question of ecology“ (Ken Robinson)
  • 3. When talking about creativity….. we are talking about social inclusion „ There are many misconceptions about creativity. Creativity is not a separate faculty that some people have and others do not. It is a function of human intelligence.“ we are talking about school development „ Creativity is a balance between freedom, authority, skill and speculation. It can be taught, but you have to loosen up the system to let it happen. You can‘t have creative learning without creative teaching.“ we are talking about diversity in democratic societies „ Creativity is the freedom to constantly see things from a different perspective.“
  • 4. The European Year of Creativity and Innovation 2009 The aim is to promote creativity as a driver for innovation as a key factor for the development of personal, occupational and social competences and the well-being of all individuals in society. Education and training systems should cater sufficiently and at all appropriate levels for the development of key competences to support creativity and innovation. Creativity is considered as an ability needed to permit autonomous thought and independent behaviour, with a view to reaching innovative and original solutions in personal, occupational and social life. Creativity and innovation should be promoted in the perspective of "lifelong and lifewide" learning and participation. Taking as a reference the Recommendation of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 on key competences for lifelong learning (2006/962/EC), in particular the competences regarding "sense of initiative and entrepreneurship" and "cultural awareness and expression“.
  • 5. The Year should highlight the following factors which can contribute to the promotion of creativity and innovation providing an environment which stimulates innovation, flexibility and adaptability to a rapidly changing world and creative management of diversity. All forms of innovation, including non-technological innovation should be taken into account providing an environment which stimulates aesthetic sensitivity, emotional development, lateral thinking and intuition and which fosters creativity in all children from the earliest stages of development, including pre-school care fostering creativity as a competence which is transferable to a variety of occupational contexts broadening access to culture and reducing disparities in access particularly during an individual's most formative years, so that the personal development of some children is not hindered
  • 6. What has happened up to now - 1998 Conference “A Creative Culture” in Bregenz during the Austrian EU- Presidency - 2001 Conference “A Must or a Muse” in Rotterdam - Since 2001 Culture-School-Network of civil servants from education and cultural administrations - 2005 Recommendations of the European Council on key competencies for lifelong learning - 2006 Conference “Cultural Education in Europe: A Contribution for Creativity, Participation and Innovation” during the Austrian EU-Presidency - 2007 Creative Learning – Strategy for Arts and Culture in Education 2007 – 2010 - 2008 Creative Learning - Summing up “Creative Partnerships”
  • 7. Just to remember: What do we mean by cross-curricular competencies? - intellectual competencies - methodological competencies - personal and social competencies - communication-related competencies
  • 8. EU-Recommendations for Life Long and Life Wide Learning - communication in the mother tongue - communication in foreign languages - mathematical competence and basic competencies in science and technology - digital competencies - learning to learn - social and civic competencies - sense of initiative and entrepreneurship - cultural awareness and expression
  • 9. What are we talking about when we are talking about cultural awareness and expression? “An awareness of local, national and European cultural heritage and their place in the world…appreciation and enjoyment of works of art…as well as self-expression…using one’s innate capacities….Cultural expression is essential to the development of creative skills, which can be transferred to a variety of professional contexts…understanding of one’s own culture…respect for diversity of cultural expression…A positive attitude also covers creativity, and the willingness to cultivate aesthetic capacity through artistic self-expression and participation in cultural life”
  • 10. What’s about evidencies? - Or neurobiology has the answer!? - the so-called Mozart-Effect - music and language learning - dance and non-verbal spacial skills - cultural education and social changes - the artists as entrepreneurs
  • 11. Anne Bamford and the Wow!-Factor based on a research for UNESCO Learning in the arts – learning by the arts - Creative Development Partnerships between schools and cultural institutions are effective in developing in pupils attributes of creative people - Applying Creativity Cultural education enables the development of good personal and social skills (effective collaboration, maturity in their relationship with adults,…) - Young Professionals A significant number of pupils were motivated to work directly in the creative industries - Standards Achieved Students improved in achievment in areas such as literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology - Personal Development and Well-Being Improvement of pupils‘ motivation to actively take part - Sustaining and Achieving Arts and Cultural Education has long lasting effects (Fe in changing cultural attitudes)
  • 12. Elliot W. Eisner: The Arts and the creation of mind or What education can learn from the Arts Arts education is about - learning that there is more than one answer for solving a problem - learning that there are interrelations between content and form - learning about imagination, refining and using sensibilities - learning that relationships depend not only on facts but on „somatic knowledge“ - learning to enjoy intrinsic satisfaction - learning that literal languages and quantifications are not the only means of education
  • 13. Howard Gardner: The Arts and its extrinsic and intrinsic effects Artistic transfer “ Ten meta-analysis showed that in most cases there was no basis for the claim that arts education improved school performance” Eight Studio Habits of Mind - Developing Craft - Engaging and persisting - Envisioning - Expressing - Observing - Reflecting - Stretching and exploring - Understanding the Arts world
  • 14. Coming to an end….. Creativity is core, not peripheral. Creativity is about thinking, not just about feelings (observation, envision, expression, reflection). Creativity is another way to understand the world, it is as important as the scientific way. Creativity cultivates habits of mind, not just craft.
  • 15. Just for further thinking: What we urgently need - Creative leadership and management - Further development of the curricula - Organisation of partnerships - Documentation, monitoring and evulation - International exchange and co-operation Thank you for your attention!
