Description This unit continues students' exploration of the creative arts and focuses on pedagogies to support the creative child. The role of the teacher and environment as art educators will be explored in detail, specifically the role of the pedagogical leader in facilitating meaningful, sustained and inclusive art experiences for the young child. Students will explore the relevance of the arts in the development of children's play and will engage with appropriate information and communication technologies for learning in the arts. Students will also draw from theory and research literature to critically analyse traditional and contemporary approaches to teaching the arts and the role of the teacher in supporting children's ability to make meaning from and express their social and cultural worlds.
