Abstract

Music movement activities have the potential to encourage young children to experience, explore, discover, and interact with the world, their peers and adults in creative ways. However, previous research has shown that some early childhood teachers in Hong Kong have difficulty in fostering children's creativity (Wong & Chu, 2001). This paper reports a study that further explored the understandings and practices of six teachers, and it draws these findings and professional literature to recommend practical strategies that foster creativity through music and movement activities.
透過動作及音樂活動,可以鼓勵幼兒有創意地去體驗、探索及發掘同輩、成年人甚至世界的事物,並能互相交流。不過,曾有研究指出,香港有部份幼師對培育幼兒創意方面感到困難。本論文以六名教師為研究對象,探討他們教學的方法和體驗,從而獲得結論及以專業角度提出可行的建議,協助教師透過動作及音樂活動,以提昇幼兒的創意能力。 Copyright © 2002 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
