Sharing Artwork in a Digitally Driven World

My students need an iPad to take photos of their artwork and upload the images to an online portfolio. The portfolio will allow my students to showcase their art to their family members near and far.

My Students

I teach students of all age levels in our elementary school, my students are energetic, creative, and are always excited to explore new concepts, tools, and materials.

I am very fortunate to teach in a school where the principal and staff members value the visual arts program and understand the impact it has on our curriculum.

I only see my students once a week for 45 minutes but we accomplish a lot and learn even more in those small snippets of time. My students love coming into the art room and are ready to create new and exciting things every week.

My Project

To keep up with the skills and technology used in our fast-paced world my students would benefit from having a classroom iPad. The iPad will be used so that my students can take photos of their work, build a collection and share it with friends and family members that are near and far.

By providing this piece of technology to my students, they can begin to experience what it is like to showcase their artwork and also gain 21st-century skills that will prepare them for their future.

Having an iPad as a classroom resource will excel our program into a digitally growing field.
