My Students

My students come from various backgrounds and all learning abilities. With all these distinct differnce in backgrounds, they still work together, are enthusiastic toward learning, and excel when presented with exciting digital learning opportunities. They want to learn to be tech savvy in our 21st century digital world, but need the tools to do. They start out unsure of technology. As their art teacher, each year I teach them new skills to ensure they progress as they learn more and more about visual art, artists, and the world around them.

As we research and create artwork in class they begin to see how to relate to each other, the world of art, and increase their self-esteem.

I love to see them begin to build relationships, collaborate, and increase their art skills, but they also need to begin to think outside of their own small world. Technology is the tool for them to begin to see the larger world outside of our school and community; to realize how they can communicate and make a real impact on the world.

My Project

My art students want to learn to be tech savvy in our 21st century digital world. The classes in my school struggle to share digital tools like laptops and we do not yet have iPads. Students are not able to create digital artwork since we are not 1 to 1 technology; we do not have one digital device for each student to use during classes. In visual art class, iPads will provide the opportunity for the students to create digital artwork like that of contemporary artists, create interactive visual presentations through the use of animation, video, audio, apps, and web 2.0 tools; and work on portfolios in Google Classroom allowing digital learning through the digital platform of Google Classroom. Embedding technology in our visual art classes will enable students to compete with their peers in other schools which are 1 to 1 technology so that they can enter visual art contests with digital artworks. This levels the playing field while increasing student self-esteem.

As students’ progress in their digital learning, they will be able to engage in both collaborative and independent work to build craftsmanship within high-quality integrated digital learning in visual art.

The iPads will enhance student digital learning by allowing them to access technology as a tool by using it and other resources for assigned tasks: to access information (multi-database search engines, online primary resources, virtual interviews with content experts), to organize information (online note-taking tools, collaborative wikis), to design products to share information with others (multimedia presentations, Web 2.0 tools, graphics, podcasts, and audio files), and to research and design global-awareness project-based products individually and collaboratively.
