Teachers’ survey on teaching and learning with living heritage in schools in Asia-Pacific
Living heritage includes cultural practices and knowledge that are meaningful to the communities, are a part of their identity and which they want to continue to transmit to future generations. Music and dances, festivals and rituals, making of handicrafts or agricultural knowledge – they are just several forms of living heritage. Living heritage is everywhere around us.
Across Asia and the Pacific, many schools and teachers link their teaching to living heritage to make the learning more connected to students’ reality. There are many ways to use living heritage in schools. Living heritage can be taught as a subject: for example, students learn traditional music, local dances or embroidery. It can also be used to help the learning process. For example, students study local weaving to practice a geometry exercise or learn sciences by studying their local environment. It can be used as part of the extra-curricular activities, in projects or in many other creative manners.
UNESCO is conducting a survey to understand how living heritage is used for teaching and learning in schools in Asia and the Pacific.
If you are a primary or secondary school teacher, we would like to hear from you before 15 November 2019.
The findings of the survey will help us to promote the teaching and learning with living heritage in schools. They will also support the safeguarding of living heritage of communities in the Asia-Pacific region.
The survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please be assured that your responses will remain confidential and will be used in an aggregated form only.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
