The best thing about my class is that there isn't a typical day. EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technology) is a project-based class that gives students the opportunity to explore something that interests them, helps the community, and uses cutting edge technology while making a difference.
One thing our EAST Program does is support numerous programs in our school, as we are at Title I school and resources can be tight.
All the resources and materials are used by students as they work to make our community a better place.
My students are talent digital artists that use their talents to help our community through many different projects.
This tablet and the tools that come with it will allow students to create logos, design posters, illustrate murals, and so much more.
The surface pro allows students to take their art work straight from their minds to the digital word versus struggling to recreate their hand drawings using a computer mouse. The functionality and speed of this will allow more students to be engaged in community projects involving animation and graphic art, as well as enticing more students to be digital arts because the starting place will be so much easier.
