The Educational Benefits of Origami
By George Levenson
Origami is the Japanese art of paper folding. It literally translates as ori (folding) gami(paper). In Japan, children learn origami at their mothers' knees. In the West, children are learning it at school. Research has shown that paper-folding, particularly in the elementary school years, is a unique and valuable addition to the curriculum. Origami is not only fun, but also an innovative method for developing vital skills. Behavioral skills:
Origami is an example of "schematic learning through repeatable actions". To be successful, the student must watch closely and listen carefully to specific instructions and then carry them out with neatness and accuracy. Here is a case where a student's success is imposed by the activity rather than the teacher. Like group singing, hand games, and dancing, the pleasure comes in recreating the result and sharing it with others. For many students, it engenders a patience that leads to pride in one's work, the ability to focus energy, and increased self-esteem. Cooperative Learning:
Origami is well-suited to working with a classroom of 30 or more students. In a multi-age setting, paper-folding tends to eliminate the status associated with age differences; the younger children are often in a position to teach the older children, and it provides an activity that works well when teaming different grade levels.Many teachers report that children who do not "star"in other places, are often quick to learn origami and help their classmates master the steps.

It's interactive in the old-fashioned sense of the word. A calm-voiced narrator introduces us to a pair of gloved hands with the expressiveness of Harpo Marx. Spare music and a plain background set off the friendly hands as they follow the steps to produce a paper crane. The instructions are clear as can be, and the narrator's cute, helpful metaphors ("open frog's mouth all the way") make the process conceptual. Children age seven and older will experience the pride of having created something after viewing the video. The program is beautifully packaged and suited for classroom use or a rainy day.

September 7, 2000 Local News Art on paper: Origami enthusiasts ready for festival BY MAI LI MUÑOZ SALISBURY POST CHARLOTTE — Music might soon have to share its station as a universal language with a centuries-old Japanese art form that is rapidly enveloping a ream of enthusiasts. “(Although) it will always have its roots in Japanese culture, origami is an international art form,” says Jonathan Baxter, founder and artistic director of the Queen City’s Southeast Origami Festival, which will take place Sept. 19-27. But Baxter is not only the SEOF’s president, he’s also an origami hobbyist who happened upon the art as a result of his “compulsion” to collect how-to books. Baxter’s interest unfolded about 20 years ago as he realized that the craft was experiencing a revival in the 20th century. According to information on origamist Joseph Wu’s Web site, paper folding has been around since the first century A.D., when it is believed that paper was first invented in China.

Strategies for any model
Here are general techniques that can be applied to any model and fit very well in the culture of origami, in which every student is a potential teacher.
  • Assign students the task learning new models by consulting the many books available (see the bibliography) and also a growing number of Web pages.
  • As a natural follow-up to (oral) teaching, give students the task of preparing directions using their own writing and diagrams. Preparing directions at the level found in books is a challenge. However, it is possible to make acceptable diagrams using a variety of methods. Computer based systems can be used and this can serve as an opportunity to encourage students to refine and polish their work. Many people use specialized tools to produce drawings, but even the basic draw tools can be beneficial. Other options are to scan in hand drawn diagrams, scan actual models in development, or use a digital camera to produce images. These images can be marked up using a computer drawing program. Finally, students can produce hypermedia: text, images, animation, and sound linked together, with the navigation under the partial control of the user. Several different techniques for producing diagrams are included in this paper.
  • Ask students to consider beforehand what will be the results of making a fold. Ask them to visualize it 'in their minds'. Encourage them to pose generalizations on the effects of folds. For example, folding an edge to a parallel edge divides an area in half.

The Educational Benefits of Paper Folding
Behavioral Skills: For many students, origami engenders a patience that leads to pride in their work, which increases self-esteem and the ability to focus their energy. Students must watch closely and listen carefully to specific instructions and then carry out those instructions carefully and accurately.
Cooperative Learning: Origami is well suited to working with a class of students. Many teachers report that children who do not "star" in other places are often quick to learn origami and help their classmates, regardless of age, to master the folding steps.
Math Link: Transforming a flat piece of paper into a three-dimensional origami object is a unique exercise in spatial reasoning. Origami also is important in teaching symmetry. Paper folding allows students to create and manipulate basically any polyhedral shape or geometric form.
Cognitive Development: Origami must be performed in a prescribed order to yield a successful outcome. Piaget, the renowned child development psychologist, held that "motor activity in the form of skilled movements is vital to the development of intuitive thought and the mental representation of space."

Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics
Wntr, 2003 by Jack A. Carter Beverly J. Ferrucci
Origami or the art of paper folding receives substantial endorsement from current reform initiatives in mathematics education. Particularly, at the elementary school level, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics in its Principles and Standards for School Mathematics recommends that students use paper folding to perform their initial investigations of symmetry and congruence in geometry (NCTM, 2000). Since prospective elementary school teachers need a solid foundation in the mathematical basis of these reform initiatives, textbooks for these future teachers should contain paper-folding applications. Although origami spans academic disciplines, paper folding has increasingly been applied to mathematical systems and structures (Hull, 1996; Auckly and Cleveland, 1995). Moreover, origami is a unique mathematical activity because one can take a sheet of paper and transform it into a three-dimensional object. This concrete experience in spatial reasoning can then be transformed into a lesson on symmetry or graph theory (Peterson, 1995). Educators have also applied paper folding to such diverse mathematical objects as logical structures (Cipra, 1998), axiomatic systems (Alperin, 2000), and tessellations with geometrical figures (Stewart, 1999).

History of Origami
Before Origami
We know very little about the origin of origami. Some say origami originated in China around 2000 years ago. But it is probably wrong. This opinion is based on the conjecture that origami started right after the invention of paper, for which we have no evidence. The paper of Former Han dynasty shows no trace of origami. The Chinese character for paper, zhi, originally stood for writing material made of silk. The origin of the Japanese word for paper, kami, is said to be birch tree, kaba, or strips of wood or bamboo, kan. Both of them were also writing material. These suggest that paper was primarily writing material, not folding. Others say origami originated from Japan in Heian era. Again, it is probably wrong. They refer to a story of Abe-no Seimei who made a paper bird and turned it to a real one, or another story about Fujiwara-no Kiyosuke who sent his ex-girlfriend a fake frog. There is no reason, however, for believing that they folded paper to make them. In Japan, we use wrapping paper called tatogami or tato. Today we mainly wrap kimono with it. It actually dates back to Heian era. But it is by no means an example of origami, since it is folded just squarely.

The East And West of Origami
Most of us will remember folding paper cups, salt cellars (we called them 'cootie' catchers or 'fortune tellers') and paper balloons as children in elementary school. There is more to origami than these simple models would lead us to believe. Origami comes from the Japanese words for folding, ori , and the Japanese word for paper, kami . When combined, kami becomes gami and the word is origami. It shares the same origin but has taken two distinct avenues of development since its creation. Those two avenues of origami have merged together in the twentieth century. There is more to origami today than just paper-folding. Origami has a long history in the east and west and a sophistication which is more artistic than a mere craft. The following is the story of the east and west in origami. The Basic Materials The Japanese learned about paper-making in the early seventh century. They gained their knowledge of paper from a Buddhist monks who came to Japan from China through Korea and the books that they brought. This started about 538 A.D. The Japanese began making paper of their own by about 610 A.D. It is believed that Dokyo, a Buddhist monk, brought knowledge of paper-making as well as painting and ink-making. He was even a doctor and became the chief physician to Empress Shotoku. The Eastern Avenue Figure 1: Flower wrapping resembling noshi wrapping The Muromachi period in Japan lasted from 1338 to 1573. The folding style of this period represented a persons place in society. Paper was now inexpensive enough to be used by everyone and origami became a means of social stratification. It was a period of military rule and two schools of origami existed. The samurai followed the Ise school while peasants and farmers followed the Ogasawara school. There has been 400 years of mothers teaching their children how to fold paper.
