Help me give my students Amazon Fire tablets. Because students are creating their own pieces of art, they ask to use my computer to look up reference images. These tablets would allow for students to be more independent.
Over 450 students create in our Art Studio each week.
In our Art Studio, we study and use the Studio Habits of Mind, eight ways of thinking that students use during their process of creating:
-Stretch & Explore
-Engage & Persist
-Understand Art Worlds
Every student comes with *AMAZING* ideas from their creative bank account. Our Art Studio is choice-based and student-directed. Students choose to work independently or collaborate with their classmates. They are responsible for their materials, setup, and cleanup. They are encouraged to take risks and be bold. They are artists!
These Amazon Fire Tablets will allow my students to be more independent in their art-making.
In our Art Studio, students choose their topics and materials.
Right now, if students need a reference image, they ask to use my computer. We have been splitting the screen so that more than one student can use it at a time. However, this leaves many waiting for their turn.
With one tablet at each table, more students can access resources. For example, if one student wants to look up how to draw a braid on their character in their drawing, another student can research how to create a phoenix out of clay.
