Drawing on the history of research on teaching creativity and on arts education, the article argues that the best way to teach for creativity is to transform domain specific education, in each subject area. This requires schools to change the way each subject is taught, so that learning outcomes support the learner’s ability to create within each specific subject. The most effective learning environments are characterized by emergent, improvisational, and collaborative pedagogical structures.

Extrinsic incentives or constraints including the promise of a reward or the expectation of an evaluation have long been used by educators to motivate students. While extrinsic incentives do, in fact, help to ensure that work gets done and that it gets done on time, caution must be exercised when creativity is at stake. In teaching and learning situations where there is one “right” answer and one best path to solution, extrinsic incentives can be extremely effective. However, when more open-ended problems and activities are presented to students, these same extrinsic incentives have been shown to kill Western students’ intrinsic motivation and creativity. In the face of an expected reward or performance evaluation, students are unlikely to take risks and tend not to be fueled by an excitement about learning that would allow them to persist with challenging tasks until they achieve a creative outcome. The complexities of the relation between task motivation and performance outcomes are reviewed and cross-cultural implications are explored.

Many technological artifacts (e.g., humanoid robots, computer agents) consist of biologically inspired features of human-like appearance and behaviors that elicit a social response. The strong social components of technology permit people to share information and ideas with these artifacts. As robots cross the boundaries between humans and machines, the features of human interactions can be replicated to reveal new insights into the role of social relationships in learning and creativity. Peer robots can be designed to create ideal circumstances that enable new ways for students to reflect, reason, and learn. This, in turn, has increased expectations that robots and computer agents will enhance human learning and complement people’s physical, social, and cognitive capabilities. This paper explores how peer-like robots and robotic systems may help students learn and engage in creative ways of thinking.

by Patrick Schmidt & Cathy Benedict — 2012
More than 75 years after the 1936 Yearbook was published, a globalized society continues to advance the not-always-equal exchange of social, cultural, and economic markers. Music is not only an integral element in such exchanges—as a commodity and a set of practices—but also central to discussions about education within and outside schooling

by Richard Colwell — 2012
Music has pervaded American history since the founding fathers sang hymns aboard the Mayflower. From that time until the present, music has been so embedded in U.S. society that it is experienced subconsciously in events and activities that are a part of daily life. Learning and instruction take place in the home, in churches, in the community, and from private entrepreneurs, as well as in schools. Thus, learning and teaching in music are heavily dependent on cooperation between parents and community, and on tradition and custom.

by Paul Woodford — 2012
This chapter seeks to draw needed attention to some of music’s social and political meanings by way of illustrating how it contributes to the shaping of people’s perceptions and understandings of their world.

by Patrick Schmidt — 2012
The rationale for an education in and through music that this chapter provides is centered on place, arguing that it can offer a rupture in persistently reproductive patterns within education. It does so by considering place as an influential construct in the development of our capacities for reflective praxis.

by David Myers — 2012
This chapter frames issues of adult music learning within a lifespan perspective. A lifespan perspective does not segment adult music education into a specialized practice of highly differentiated strategies from those of childhood; rather, it envisions seamless relationships among music learning in educational settings, people’s self-initiated lifelong music experiences outside such settings, and the assurance of richly diverse and developmentally appropriate opportunities for continued music learning through adulthood.

by Patrick Jones — 2012
The key issues that challenge collegiate music education programs reviewed in this chapter include changing demographics and tastes in music; transformation of the music industry; new technologies that alter the way people interact, access information, and engage musically; cultural and financial changes in higher education; changing expectations for primary and secondary schools; and nonschool providers of music education services.

by Graça Mota — 2012

by Carlos Rodriguez — 2012
In this chapter, I share my thoughts regarding the future role of popular music in music education at a moment when there seems to be greater receptiveness to this idea than ever before.

by Cathy Benedict — 2012
It is the goal and the purpose on which the utopia is based that merit attention. As such, in this chapter, I engage in what Gilroy (in Shelby & Gilroy, 2008) referred to as a “utopian exercise” in order to think through our3 “romance with” (p. 134) music as “part of the core curriculum” and as “balanced, comprehensive, and sequential” (National Association for Music Education [NAfME], 2011b).

by Cecila Thorgersen & Eva Georgii-Hemming — 2012
This chapter takes into account and discusses innovative learning in the 21st digital and communicative century based on life-world-phenomenology and Hannah Arendt’s view of democracy. From this point of view, we address and discuss how democratic practices can offer innovative musical learning in relation to what is taking place in research and educational projects in Sweden and the Nordic countries.

by Lauri Väkevä — 2012
In this chapter, I will argue that (1) mediation is one of the most important aspects of digital artistry and that (2) the pedagogical implications of recognizing this are significant concerns to music educators (see also Väkevä, 2006, 2009, 2010).

by Matthew Thibeault — 2012
This chapter argues for the critical engagement of the music education profession to amplify positive change. This is a pragmatic view of technological change (Hickman, 2001; Waddington, 2010) that emphasizes agency within the interplay of wants, needs, values, and practices as people change and are changed by technological innovation.

by Cathy Benedict — 2012
Each of the authors in this Yearbook spoke to the multiple responsibilities and challenges of education in our contemporary society, each of which intersects the internal needs and realities of our nation-state, the demands of information technology growth, as well as the economic codependency and the cultural changes fostered by global interactions.

by Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor, Jennifer Wooten, Mariana Souto-Manning & Jaime Dice — 2009

by Frances McCue — 2007
An article about learning at an informal venue: Richard Hugo House, a nonprofit center for creative writing in Seattle. The article traces the characteristics of teaching and learning in a place not segregated by age, skill level, or economic background of the people who come there.

by Elizabeth Thomas — 2007
This article examines a community-based arts classroom that represents alternative practices and relationships than are typical in most schools to understand more about the possibilities of learning and identity for disenfranchised students. The study draws on long-term engagement, participant observation, and discourse analysis to highlight the resources made available to students as well as changing patterns of student participation in workshop activities.

by Philip Jackson — 2002
This paper is an exposition of a definition of art that Dewey gave in a talk to teachers in 1906.

by David Conrad — 1995
The author examines the community mural movement as an educational activity, reviewing the history of the modern mural movement, noting its democratic direction, and concluding that community murals can potentially educate artists and non-artists.

by Jaye Darby & James Catterall — 1994
Sprinkled throughout education journals and books is a lively discourse about the importance of the arts in every child's education. However, most of this work has been addressed to the already committed: arts educators and educationists focused on arts education. The purpose of this article is to bring together recent theories, research, and developments in arts education in order to broaden the base of discourse.
