No one is currently using Theatre in Education to engage and inspire the young generation to understand Cardano Blockchain Technology.
Using Theatre in Education as an alternative medium to promote and create awareness of Cardano Blockchain Technology to Second Cycle Schools
This is the total amount allocated to Theatre For Change
Live theatre is a powerful way to attract students’ attention and keep them engaged and make them adopt Cardano Blockchain Technology easily.Theatre in education will also be an effective way to exchange knowledge, create intentions and correct the myth around Cardano Blockchain Technology.
The proposed solution will make good use of the four learning styles (Visual Spatial, Aural - Auditory Musical, Verbal Linguistics, and Physical Kinesthetic) to address what words can’t express to the second cycle students about Cardano's main applications, future plans for the world, NFT, and SPO.
The Second Cycle Schools comprise of students between the ages of 15-21 years.
Each live theatre performance in the schools will be based on real life scenarios in the Ecosystem. The live performances will be video recorded then uploaded to social media platforms to act as an online educational material.
The project will have a great impact on students and will make the disseminating of information easier for people to understand, process and retain, especially complex topics about Blockchain that involve human emotions and interpersonal relationships.
Indeed, Cardano has a strong YouTube community, but obviously YouTube is not everything and it's not received well in many perspectives which is absolutely true!
In the context of these projects, we are using Interactive Theatre Performances as a medium to convey the message of Cardano Blockchain Technology and its effectiveness.
This methodology in implementing the project falls under the “Film + Media (FAM) creatives unite!” Challenge setting objectives which goes beyond the normal traditional way of media.
Even though the Theatre in Education will provide a ‘cognitive playground’ in which students can experiment and learn what Cardano Blockchain Technology is, there may be different choices and points of view from each student, as well as a language barrier. Therefore, we shall convey our message in the language in which the target audience understands best.
