Resources for Educators

Con­cept Map for FSP 2020

This is an overview with resources for edu­ca­tors inter­est­ed in the Found Sound Project. The week-long camp is cen­tered around the cre­ation of sound­scapes of the local envi­ron­ment. Stu­dents will sam­ple envi­ron­men­tal sound and seek found sound in order to enhance com­po­si­tions writ­ten on musi­cal instru­ments. Stu­dents will occu­py many roles — sound recordist, audio engi­neer, musi­cian, com­pos­er, edi­tor and sto­ry­teller — to pro­duce a unique sound com­po­si­tion that draws on exist­ing musi­cian­ship empow­ered and acti­vat­ed with mod­ern dig­i­tal tools. The project is designed around core prin­ci­ples of place-based learn­ing, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice, acces­si­bil­i­ty and artis­tic identity.

If you would like to learn more, I would rec­om­mend you check out spe­cif­ic resources relat­ed to the four main cat­e­gories in the Con­cept Map above:

Mean­ing-Mak­ing: Why do this?

Tools & Tech­niques: Prac­tices that enable success.

Sam­ple Activ­i­ty Plans from Project: What will learn­ers do?
