How to Utilise Indigenous Art and Protocols in the Classroom”
MetadataShow full item record
Learn how Indigenous art concepts can be used in the classroom, and gain an understanding of Indigenous protocols in context. Robyn Heckenberg presents case studies and practical solutions that reflect on Country/Place, Culture and People, and the expectations of the National Curriculum framework. Addressing the topic from the point of view of Indigenous local community expectations, she draws on ideas that come more broadly from Indigenous arts practitioners, Elders, authors and art support organisations. Relevant for primary through to secondary teachers, the overarching elements of identity and living communities are demonstrated through a story. The story’s aspirational representations showcase a positive narrative within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia and educational settings of the formal classroom. Robyn highlights how taking its ideas outdoors into the natural environment can engender even greater motivation and positive outcomes, as the protocols attached to Country work in harmony with the landscape/nature. In this context, she notes how issues to do with the environment are recognised as part of the STEM dialogue and are highly relevant for Earth healing.
