A couple of weeks ago, I posted the TED conference video by Anita Collins in a blog post called Why Do We Study Music? It received a lot of positive feedback and has been one of my top posts. The more I think about this topic, the more I am concerned with the education my children will be receiving when they begin school in a couple of years.“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” – Albert Einstein
Don’t get me wrong, knowledge about science and math is important, but if a student can’t learn how to take that knowledge and create something new and exciting, does it matter? I have been reading a lot of articles and I wanted to continue to share them with you. If you have any other articles, please share them with me. I will be creating a STEAM page on this website with all of the collected links and resources.
