On the 3rd of August, 2020 Experience Workshop’s transdisciplinary workgroup led a live workshop session in the program of Bridges 2020 Virtual Conference.
Watch the full session here:
The research group consisted of leading STEAM education researchers from all over the world: Kristóf Fenyvesi (Jyväskylä, Finland), Christopher Brownell (Fresno, USA), Pamela Burnard (Cambridge, UK), Carine Steyn (Port Elizabeth, South Africa), Werner Olivier (Port Elizabeth, South Africa), Pallawi Sinha (Cambridge, UK), Zsolt Lavicza (Linz, Austria), Saara Lehto (Helsinki, Finland) and Kirsi Peltonen (Helsinki, Finland).
Abstract: This workshop will build upon a process developed by some of the authors for interpreting the mathematical and artistic knowledge demonstrated in MathArt-works created by children and youth. The participants will be separated into small groups and be given a MathArt-work to interpret. Each group will develop their own “Rhizomatic” representation of their interpretation which will be shared with the whole group during a “Gallery Walk” exhibition. Finally, all participants will discuss the creation of a network of practitioners interested in organizing children and youth mathematical art exhibits.
