Insula Barataria by Vicente López Abad

COURSE: Independant Project

MEDIUM: Website / Blog

DESCRIPTION:
Insula Barataria was conceived as an MFL creative blog and resources for language teachers who want to make a change, challenge students intellectually, foster teaching for creativity in the classroom, improve outcomes and boost motivation.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
Creative activities fresh from the oven, teacher’s ramblings, newfound educational trends, pedagogical quirks, travelers’ logbook entries, policy exhortations, figments of an idealistic educators’ imagination, theoretical jibber-jabber, collages of cultural tidbits, poetical improv and poetic impromptus, methodological prattle, and a treasure trove of recipes for disaster, are among the specimens to be found in this eclectic MFL creative blog… I still have to find time to translate all the activities I have accumulated over the years into blog entries for the platform, but I hope the time I have devoted to being a language instructor will thus become useful to others who believe in teaching creatively and teaching for creativity.
