Craft education in the cultural struggle. P. 7, Cuban sloyd: history and educational research on developing creativity : four articles
Örebro University, Department of Education.
1997 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The subject known as sloyd in the Nordic countries has an important historical relationship with the development of practical education in many countries worldwide. Technology Education and Craft and Design are some of its equivalents at international level. In the compilation of articles in this report the main facts related to the introduction of Swedish Sloyd in Cuba and Latin America are further analyzed; research outcomes in relation to the development of children’s creative potentialities are also presented. The introduction of sloyd in Latin America is related to an important economical growth in some of those countries during the last decades of the XIX century. Moreno Herrera assumes that the introduction of this subject, of practical and productive character, was aimed to guarantee an expected and lately non-realized, industrial development of these countries; it is also viewed as a result of the increase of progressive ideas in education. Also discussed is the process of introduction of sloyd in Cuba and the rise of Cuban sloyd as a qualitatively new subject resulting from the meeting of Swedish sloyd and Cuban socio-cultural context.

The development of creativity has become a major area of concern in research within the subject field. Based on empirical studies, Moreno Herrera considers the factors conditioning the development of children’s creative potentialities to be threefold: teaching-organizative, intellectual-cognitive and affective-motivational. Articles in this compilation deepen into the particularities of the two first.
