Kadenze

But the question arises: do the precepts of arts education hold value for contemporary online pedagogy? In developing what is known as ‘the Kadenze Approach’, our researchers, instructional designers, and teachers have distilled eight effects that an artful approach to creativity will include.

True pedagogy

Pedagogy is not about directing children. In its absolute form, pedagogy is not just about teaching. In the truest sense, teaching is just one element of pedagogy and not the entire story.

Pedagogy vs. Andragogy: Where Many Get it Wrong In Their Learning Strategy

eLearningMind
