Learning Project 1: Crease to Amaze

Cut to show Creativity

Welcome to my journey of Learning Project via Educational Technologies. This would be my first time to explore a new subject matter systematically for given learning project in specific time frame. Thereby, I’ve chosen to use my interest of creativity but surely a different topic. I’ve chosen to cut and fold some papers to show creativity in the field of Art called ‘Origami’.

Being a child I’ve seen many videos about Origami but following steps and patterns in creativity was not my cup of tea. I’m a free painter so I like to follow disorder mess. Getting hands dirty with your flying imagination is what I like to create. Nevertheless, I’ve planned to jump into this puddle of methodology. Thereby, with no knowledge of how and where am I suppose to begin with this paper creation, thought to give it a try.

First and foremost to initiate Origami Learning Project, I would begin with a basic knowledge of Origami such as a history of Origami. Once theoretical concept is little bit cleared, I might jump into practicality of the subject. In order to begin this, I will do online web and Youtube research such as Beginner’s Origami with minimal steps and try it out. As and when I achieve success I might try out few of a different varieties. Later getting a hand on it I will move to one stage higher with medium steps. I’ll search for available articles, blogs, forums, apps to get hold of action. Even, if I mess up will continue to learn and understand the concept. Thereafter, if I succeed, I will try out advanced Origami probably by looking for an artist who is into such creation deeply and will follow them on social media to learn more about it.

I want to learn Origami so that I can simplify and teach kids to learn about Art Ed in classrooms. As being child, I always had a passion to learn about craft creativity but without sources, tutor and supplies couldn’t learn it. Therefore, being a teacher at any point if I can help any kids who want to learn about art will make them happy. Last but not least, having a passion in learning creativity if I learn new art, it is surely success and proud moment for me.

  1. Sona,
    This is such an interesting idea! I would have never thought about choosing origami as my learning project. I wonder if this will serve any meditative and relaxing purposes for you as you start to get a hang of it! I can’t wait to hear more about your journey.
    Thanks for sharing,

  2. Hello Sona,
    This is a really great idea for your learning project. I have always found Origami very interesting. I myself, have never really had the patience to really learn it. I think that this skill will serve you well as a teacher. I feel that if I had had a passionate and knowledgeable tutor as a child, Origami is something that I could have really enjoyed.
    Good luck on your project! I look forward to reading more about it.

  4. Hi Sona,
    This is such an interesting idea and I am so excited to see how this learning project goes!
    I think this may also be perfect for an edtech class as in the past I have tried learning origami from books and I think the pictures always confused me! Being able to watch a video may be a great way to learn!
    Good Luck!
