Strawberries, Potatoes and the Visual Arts: Opening Up Possibilities for Children’s Multiple, Diverse, Connected, Rhizomatic Ways of Knowing in Primary School

Britt, C. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk

Description

Drawing on influences from Deleuze and Guattari (1987), and the pedagogical project in Reggio Emilia, Italy, this presentation will reflect on the notion of knowledge as ‘rhizomatic’, where everything is different and everything is connected, interconnected, in-between; where everything is understood in relation to processes of becoming, moving, changing. We will explore the ways in which visual arts can help make thinking more complex and more visible/revisable, and consider how re-imagining children’s multiple ways of knowing and expressing their knowledges might allow us as teachers to listen more deeply to children’s thinking, theory making and learning processes across the curriculum.
