Drama and Theatre Education
教育戲劇和劇場


Conclusion
結尾

Currently being applied in various teaching areas like Chinese literacy, foreign languages, history and geography and etc., drama and theatre education is particularly vital for humanities. Drama’s unique democratic and open way of teaching helps it not only become humanised, motivational and acceptable in teaching, but also play a constructive role in developing children’s personality, emotion-management ability, teamwork, critical thinking and morality; its colourful, wide-ranging teaching methods as well as art elements inside make it inevitable to foster children’s aesthetic, curiosity, imagination and creativity.

Due to long-term development of art and education concepts, a large amount of manpower and capital spent in research and practice, changes in productivity and production relations and the constantly progressed society, we have no excuse to confine our kids to the conventional teaching and learning mode, such as blind recitation, imitation and copy. Those who say “not to make a bet on kids” and “so much afraid of taking a joke of kids’ future” are actually lazy intellectually. Everyone needs to face the laws underlying social growth, seek means to bridge the gap between institutional flaws and future demands and cultivate imagination, creativity and aesthetic so as to adjust to the uncertain future.

Wealthy practical accumulation of drama and theatre education together with a solid theoretical foundation endows it with considerable possibilities in the future, which makes sense for both educational programs set in governments, schools and educational institutions and those students who determine to treat education as their life-long career. Huge possibilities and rich innovation incorporated in theatres enable them to yield something as big as the civilised system of democracy and also nurture greater wisdom and feelings which are a must in the establishment of a more advanced human civilisation. I hope more people would benefit from it.

教育戲劇和劇場目前在眾多教學領域都有研究和應用,例如語文、外語、歷史、地理等基礎學科,其在人文學科裡的作用尤為重大。它所特有的民主、開放的教學方式,使之不僅在的教學上更加符合人性,更容易激勵學生和讓學生接受,還在孩子成長過程中更為重要的性格養成、情緒管理、團隊合作、批判思想及道德倫理方面有著重要的建設作用;其豐富多彩的教學方法及其本身包含的藝術內質,使孩子在學習過程中審美、好奇心、想象力、創造力等方面的培養和提升也成為某種必然。

藝術和教育觀念長期的發展,大量人力物力在研究實踐上的投入,生產力和生產關係的改變以及社會不斷前進的步伐使得我們再沒有更多理由停留在一味背誦、模仿和復制的舊有教學模式中。那些聲稱“不敢拿自己的孩子作賭注”、“不敢拿孩子的未來開玩笑”的人,與其說不敢讓他們的孩子去接受風險不如說是他們自身知識上的一種懶惰。所有人都需要面對社會發展變化的必然規律,找到一個途徑去彌補制度缺橫和未來需要之間的斷層,去培養和提升想象力、創造力以及審美,從而適應今後不確定的未來。

教育戲劇和劇場長期的實踐積累以及它所具有的堅實理論基礎使得這個領域在未來的發展具有相當的空間和可能,無論作為學校、政府、教育機構的教育項目或是那些有志投身教育的學生的職業規劃都是具有相當意義的。劇場所蘊藏著極豐富的可能性和創造性,它既能孕育出大到民主一般的文明制度,也能孕育出人類邁向更高文明所需要的更高的智慧和情感,願有更多的人能夠從中獲益。
