1. Preparing a process of art works for communication Reflections of the teacher Each student is every day confronted with and experience a broad variety of Vietnamese visual culture. The number of posters, billboards, and advertising signs is heavily increasing. The art students are also introduced to different theories about learning and development of competences. In this material the theory of multiple intelligences by Howard Gardner is selected but many other aspects could have been chosen as content for this project. In order to combine these experiences the lecturer decides to introduce an art project creating communicative posters on multiple intelligences to be applied in classrooms, in staffrooms and at meetings with parents.

Thematic Approach Reflections of the teacher

CIE model is a pedagogical, didactic approach to develop innovative students

CREATIVE PLATFORM A topic is an objective concept chosen as a common platform for creating ideas, memories, associations, fantasy. Mention or list all the ideas you get in connection to the chosen topic? Based on the topic the teacher can guide the class in creating a mind map. All ideas are welcome and categorized during the process It is essential to get the attention of the students and motivate them to think about, elaborate on, and differentiate the interpretation of the topic. They are working within the creative platform. INNOVATIVE PLATFORM The class agrees on common or individual idea for a thematic approach to a learning process in Arts and each student selects their personal interpretation and motif. The students can work individually or in groups. How can I/we express my/our idea? How can I/we improve my/our idea? Where can I/we search for inspiration and help? With whom can I/we discuss my/our draft?

ENTERPRISING PLATFORM Starting from the drafted sketches in the groups the class collects inspiration from other visualizations of MI. The class agrees one a common style, format, number of colours etc. for the production. The students produce their final works. A project develops in an interaction between the created idea/focus and the available and challenged competences in each student
