A world of opportunities
C&T connects you to the world around you: create, learn, collaborate and share with children, young people and communities across the globe.
In an age of increasing globalisation driven by the digital revoloution, C&T uses these technologies to connect and classrooms around the world. This is you chance to participate and learn with like-minded teachers, artists and students across the globe. Here is an example of how this works for us and for our collaborating schools:
In the summer of 2014, as France grappled with the tragedy of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, and the USA struggled to understand a wave of apparent unlawful police shootings, young people in New York City collaborated with counterparts in Nairobi, Kenya to ask the question 'what does freedom mean to us?'
Using C&T's Livingnewspaper.net website and techniques young people and their teachers struggled to understand these 'breaking news' stories, using grounded research to help shape digital and drama-based media content that tried to articulate these complex issues. They used the internet to research events, construct surveys to gauge public opinion and a range of software to build graphs and theatre methods to interrogate, undestand and interpret events.
Finally, the internet brought these children - 7,000miles apart - together. They debated questions, discussed problems, shared soloutions and created responses to these most pressing of issues. And they made friends and celebrated their capacity to change the world.
A typical way that C&T can bring change and opportunity through creative learning and technology. See the opportunities available to you here.
