How to Teach
creafon® - an interdisciplinary learning environment
Thinking, Acting, and being Creative across Disciplines
You can note music - and you can play music. Musical notation is a central basis of musical education in our classical music tradition and therefore an important content of music lessons. However, this tradition is also a reason why playing a musical instrument at schools often remains a matter of marginal importance. In many places it doesn't seem to be clear that one can play an instrument without knowing the traditional musical notation and that one can very well acquire musical knowledge by playing music without any notation. To be exact so learning the musical notation has actually more to do with mathematical subjects than with music - but who wants to play music in the math lessons?creafon® wants to build bridges:
Chapter 1: Constructing Knowledge
The inputs for thinking, which are presented here, take it for granted that learning is a construction process of the person involved in learning.
Chapter 2: Exploring Learning Environment
The reader is invited to explore the process of learning - with the aid of the play and learning material creafon® - and to go exploring in the field of learning.
Chapter 3: creafon® in Teaching
Using creafon® in classroom involves checking and broadening one's didactic concepts and at the same time learning to understand children as experts of learning.
