Impact Narrative

Andy’s OVER proposal:

“I am currently studying for a Professional Masters in Art & Design Education. In my second year I aim to conduct a research piece based around ecopedagogical issues, and am currently writing a paper on the link between enclosed, mass-produced education and planetary malfunction. In tandem with this I am encouraging my pupils to explore themes with ecopedagogical issues.

In the next couple of years I will be placed in different schools. I would like to use the books to:
1. Launch in-class creative projects based around themes of inter being & stewardship.
2. Encourage fellow educators to approach these themes in their work.
3. Promote stewardship issues in a school-wide context.
4. Share this information with my college peers and tutors for incorporation into Classroom Practice & Development Education projects.

All of the work will be documented rigorously as a requirement of my course, and completed projects will be shared via pinterest, web & twitter/facebook.

I was extremely moved reading the book online. The format makes the issues incredibly clear and immediate, and I think the book would be a powerful motivator in an educational context.”
