Student initiated learning
So much can be developed in terms of good practice by students acting on the principles of socio-cultural learning by being given the opportunity to act for themselves. This is one of the emerging strands in the Changing Places project, where students from two institutions; New Zealand Tertiary College and the University of Auckland are working side by side in developing musical activities in early childhood centres in Auckland. This music project has revealed that tertiary level students are quite capable of developing 'good practice' that is both dynamic and evolving in nature. Students working together, in a socio-cultural engagement, one coming from early childhood education and the other from a music department has, it is perceived, heightened the learning for each party. Any thoughts?
