So I’m trying something a little different this year with my students.
In the past, whenever I wanted to show them something creative to students for the purposes of school work (and also just to generally expose them to good aesthetics, intelligent design, etc.), I’d e-mail them to ‘push’ the info to them.
That doesn’t work because students don’t always check their mail (or e-mail from me tends to be ignored… I don’t condone this but I don’t blame them either.)
Also, we have a school-based Content Management System (CMS), but students have to ‘pull’ the info from the site.
So based on some feedback several of my ex-students gave me last year, I thought I’d set up musee.sg in my own personal capacity to ‘curate creativity’.
I think teaching creative thinking isn’t enough; people also have to be immersed in a creative environment or at least exposed to creative things on a regular basis to become creative too.
So students and anyone who’s interested in this can:
- Follow le Tumblr (it’s the first time I’m messing around with Tumblr BTW);
- Follow le Twitter; and/or
- Become a Facebook fan.
I thought I’d use social media because it just pushes everything to the students who are always on Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook anyway.
BTW I’m developing this organically so everything’s a bit spartan now in terms of design and stuff.
Also, organic means that it might die or it might evolve, but what the hell – let’s see where this goes.
Appreciate any support if you can spare some!
