My Students

"The art challenges technology. Technology inspires the art." ~John Lasseter (Disney)

Our school has a very diverse population, with students coming from varied economic, social and cultural backgrounds.

The students have shown a great amount of artistic potential and creativity, with an innate curiosity about historical and contemporary art and artists from around the world.

My Project

Using the laptop in our art program would allow students to create technology-based art (stop-motion animation, digital art/photography, etc.), as well as research and experience art (visuals and stories) from virtual/online museums and art websites. It would also allow students to create (and/or teachers to demonstrate) technology-based art (stop-motion animation, photography, digital art). The visual aids and content that would be available using the laptop, would be especially useful to English language learners and students with disabilities, who tend to absorb more and maintain greater interest with the support of visual content. The potential for learning and projects that would be possible is literally boundless.

Most of the classrooms in our school have a teacher laptop to pair with other technology such as the SMART board.

Our art classrooms do not have a SMART board or teacher laptop, but we do have a projector. The projector can connect to the new laptop, providing our classes with access to interactive programs/apps and websites, online reference and research materials as well as museums from around the world that the students would likely never have the opportunity to visit in person.
