The Tie-Dye, Ba…

on June 21, 2012

The Tie-Dye, Batik experience showed me an added layer to the fact that:

“Apprenticeship has two parts: (1) observing “experts”doing what you are trying to learn to do, and (2) performing, that is, actually trying to do it yourself as well as you can” (Lindfors, 2008, p. 65).

What it revealed was “collaboration,” as the kids and I navigated through the art, coloring our body parts in the process, but very happy with the outcome.

    Sue! Good for you – so cool that you are doing a blog and LOVE how creativity is playing a role.. somehow, this is going to affect your research in a positive way. I just signed up to do a travel blog while we are in Australia! Are you coming to Aus from India?? I sort of recall your travel plans when we did our skype call. see you soon! Trish

    Hi Trish,
    Yes loving this, even though am not doing it daily. Another aspect is with increased viewing the interactional piece to blogging makes learning truly a fun, experiential activity. So with more likeminded viewers it can become an addiction.
    Also the India trip was cancelled, so will be going to AUS.
