The Essential Relationship between Pedagogy and Technology in Enhancing the Teaching of Dance Form
Smith-Autard, Jacqueline
Research in Dance Education, v4 n2 p151-169 Dec 2003
This paper introduces the reader to Wild Child--a CD-ROM resource for dance education (Schofield & Smith-Autard, 2001) and aims to disclose how research undertaken by the dance educator (author of this paper) in partnership with multimedia expert, Jim Schofield, has led to advances in pedagogy. Focusing on the teaching of dance form, the paper outlines the concept of form adopted by the authors of the resource and then presents specific examples of ways in which the technology facilitates teaching and learning of form in the context of an art that moves through time and space. Analysis of the examples selected indicates a relationship in which pedagogy takes the lead and makes demands upon technology. It also shows that the outcome of research for this CD-ROM title has resulted in a resource that provides a compendium of learning activities and a way forward in offering teachers "technology toolboxes" to enhance pupils' knowledge, creativity and skills in dance. (Contains 2 tables, 5 figures and 10 notes.)
