The research will focused on:
- Developing a dynamic interface in education on the island of Ireland that will harness the arts and science in a synergistic manner to enhance learning and teaching in schools.
- Enhance creativity in teaching and learning.
- Expand the application of visual literacy to learning in both Science and Technology.
- Promote innovative strategies for assessment in Science and Technology that will measure skills in creativity and problem-solving and do not rely predominately on children’s written literacy and numeracy skills.
A conference was held in March 2008 in St Mary’s University College Belfast.
