CaixaEscena Pedagogical Kit - co-creation of educational content

CaixaEscena

 

La Mandarina de Newton starts a new collaboration with Obra Social “La Caixa” within one of its educational projects, ‘CaixaEscena’.

CaixaEscena is a program that aims to support to the teachers who promote theater at their schools, by encouraging the exchange of knowledge between them and theater professionals. Through different activities for both teachers and students, CaixaEscena is a participatory project that proposes theater as a tool for cultural, social and educational development of young people.

This year La Mandarina de Newton will be the entity responsible for the organization of a new series of workshops within this educational program. The goal is to share the knowledge generated during the previous activities and give it a new form  that will allow to expand and share, in a useful and intuitive way, that knowledge – a pedagogical kit. Over several co-creation sessions with teachers and theater professionals, we will be creating the basis of the didactic contents of that kit and which will afterwards be produced by CaixaEscena, along with specialized designers. This kit will then be available to both workshop participants, as to any other teacher that want to use it.

We will be leading three co-creation workshops throughout the first quarter of 2015, in three spanish autonomic regions:

January 24, 2015, Murcia.
Workshop 1: Ideation and prototyping. Together we will create the basis of the didactic contents of the kit.

February 20, 2015, Madrid.
Workshop 2: Content sprint. To identify and produce the main contents of the kit.

March 20, 2015, Barcelona.
Workshop 3: Testing and final validation. Improvement suggestions and final presentation event.

All participants will be acknowledged and cited in the final design.

Participation in these workshops is open to all professionals interested in participating. Registration is free and the places limited!

To confirm your participation please contact us via email: espai@lamandarinadenewton.com.

La Mandarina de Newton, is the entity that collaborates with CaixaEscena, devising, coordinating, producing, executing and analyzing these sessions.

Science of the City reaches Fine Arts and much more

We have been not talking too much lately about the project Science of the City. But not for lack of news. It is rather the opposite. During the last months we have been analyzing the video clips carefully closed and we started to talk with artists.

The research group imarte form the University of Barcelona (UB) has joined the project. Discussions on what a is city, what is not a city, what is science  and what is not science have already began! We have also found many references to works produced by artists that may have some connections with the video clips submitted by the participants in the Video Contest. The first artistic proposals in response to all this are starting to take shape!

Moreover, the “la Caixa” Foundation has decided to sponsor this project.

Finally, we are proud to announce that the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) has chosen it as an example of inspiring practices for scientific communication.

The science of cities has arrived from many very different towns: Barcelona, Seville, New York, San Jose, Bogota, Paris, Singapore… Many participants contributed with their videos, their comments and their votes. We tried to bring all this material to new places: universities, research centers, museums, schools, conferences… so that we could offer to all you a physical exhibition soon. We hope to meet you there!
