VATICAN MUSEUMS INNOVATIVE AND DIDACTIC ACTIVITY FOR BOTH DEAF AND HEARING CHILDREN

by Isabella Salandri
December 2017

 

The Vatican Museums, in collaboration with the Istituto Statale Sordi di Roma and "Italia Creativa" Association, designed an innovative and inclusive educational activity, which can be simultaneously experienced by both deaf and hearing children. The visits will be organized in different Vatican Museum areas using special installations, B-Sense platforms, capable of converting music and sound into vibrations, offering all participants both the hearing and deaf, the opportunity to listen and feel melodies through the body.

 

The interactive and multisensory laboratories are designed specifically for integrated lessons and are able to produce "an augmented reality," dedicated to the comprehension of art. The laboratories use the Socratic method through multi-sensory activities that involve the inquisitive creativity of children. Through the stimulation of critical thinking, children will experience, understand, and appreciate art. The visits will be engage each child’s intellect and imagination, building their knowledge.

 

This special activity will commence in January 2018 in the Vatican Museums. For further information please refer to the Vatican Museums website.

 

 

 

 

The Italian & International Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums wish to thank Kingsley & Robin Mundey for their support to this project.
