    什么是“你的星球”?What is ‘Your Planet’?

    “你的星球”是上纽大助理文学教授袁雁悦和创意助理郭一陆为上海建青实验学校设计并教授的一门选修课。这门项目制创意学习课程以《小王子》的故事为引子,开启学生的创造性学习体验。在13周的课时里,两名任课老师与16名来自六年级和七年级的中学生通过整合剧本撰写、音乐制作、歌词创作和视觉设计创造了这一40分钟的“创意作品”,共度了一段难忘的学习之旅。

     

           围绕“如何在中国公立学校培育创造性学习?”这一主要研究问题该课程是袁老师和陆陆现正进行的创造性学习研究试点项目的重要部分。与此同时,她们也关注年轻的学习者在通过创造型方式学习的过程中是如何与他人合作的;随着时间推移,他们对自己的创意能力的自我认知是怎样演变的;及当给予学习者自主权去记录和呈现他们的学习过程的时候会发生什么。

     

    Your Planet was an elective course at Shanghai Jianqing Experimental School designed and taught by Yanyue YUAN (袁雁悦) (Assistant Arts Professor, NYU Shanghai) and Lulu GUO (郭一陆) (Creative Associate, NYU Shanghai). The project-based creative learning course used the story of the Little Prince as a prompt to facilitate students’ own creative learning experience. The two instructors worked with 16 students from grade 6 and grade 7 for 13 weeks during class hours. By integrating script writing, music production, lyrics creation, and visual design, the whole course team created a forty-minute show as a “creative product” of this learning journey.

     

    The course was a major part of the pilot project that Yanyue and Lulu were running, with the major research question How can we foster creative learning in a Chinese public school? They were also interested in how young learners collaborate with each other while learning through creating; how young learners’ self-perception of their own creative capabilities change over time; and what happens when learners are given the autonomy to document and present their learning process.

     

    为什么我们命名这个项目为“你的星球”?Why We Named the Project ‘Your Planet’?

    “每一个读者的心里都有一个属于自己对“小王子”这个故事的解读。在不同的人生阶段,不同的年龄阶段,小王子总是能够给我们不一样的领悟。有的时候,我们也会思考,如果我们像小王子那样,永远天真美好、永远不懂大人的世界该多好。

     

    在人生旅途中,我们每一个人都来自属于自己的b612星球,我们都曾遇到过自己深爱的却不懂如何去呵护的玫瑰花。也许都曾被狐狸教会过驯养的意义。我们也好奇,如果小王子长大了会变成怎样,是否还会一如既往的觉得大人的世界无趣无聊,还是选择掩饰和沉默?是否他还愿意花时间和精力去“驯服”或是“被驯服”?

     

    如果小王子穿越了时空,来到2019年的地球是不是依然会遇见想要统治一切的国王,需要被时刻恭维的虚荣的人,沉溺于欲望而不可自拔的酒鬼,精于算计的商人,一日又一日重复着执行命令的点灯人和把一切探索交给别人的地理学家?

     

    我们相信,这一切的一切,每一个孩子心中,都会有一个独一无二的答案。正如从每一个孩子的眼中,我们都能够发现一片星空。他们有着属于自己的星球。于是,我们希望向这些孩子发出邀请,请他们和我们一起分享 “你的星球”。

     

    There are a thousand Little Princes in a thousand people's eyes. We each have different interpretations of the story of the Little Prince in different stages of our life. Sometimes, we ponder whether we can stay innocent like the Little Prince by staying away from the world of grown-ups.

     

    We each come from our own b612 planet. We might all have experienced ‘not knowing how to take care of the rose we love’, and we might have been ‘taught by our foxes about taming’. We are curious about what the Little Prince would grow into? Would he still shout out that the grown-up world is boring or would he choose to keep silent? Would he still devote himself to ‘taming others’ or ‘being tamed’?

     

    If the Little Prince traveled to the Earth in 2019 in a time machine, would he still meet the King who yearns to reign over everything, the Conceited man who is eager for admiration all the time, the Drunkard who is devoured by desire, the serious Businessman who loves to claim ownership of the stars, the Lamplighter who follows the orders day after day, and the Geographer who leaves all exploratory work to others?

     

    We believe that deep down in each child’s heart, there lives a unique answer to these questions. Seeing through children’s eyes, we are able to discover starry nights. Dear children, we hope you can share ‘Your Planet’ with us!
