Creative Learning (CLEAR) Project
CLEAR is aiming to introduce a new innovative method that will make use of theatre techniques in order to make more attractive the teaching of the school subjects in the elementary school. Through the improvement of the attractiveness of these subjects and through the active participation of the students in the classroom, the project aims to improve the educational achievement of the students in these subjects.
The use of theatre techniques in the elementary school is proven to be very effective for the improvement of the school performance of the children. Most of the schools use the traditional top-down approach to learning which limits the active participation of students in education. When drama techniques are used, it is usually in the framework of language courses and not in the framework of science or maths. For this reason, the project is aiming to produce a comprehensive methodology for the use of drama techniques for all the subjects of the school curriculum and for all the classes of the elementary school.
