‘iPad Art Room’ is a key initiative in the creation of a new learning environment for diverse students in Visual Arts. It’s all about mixing the paint with pixels, and the traditional with technology, to enhance engagement and maximize learning outcomes through art-making.
The personal mobile devices we see in the hands of our students are powerful tools for creation. Mistakes can be erased, experiments are easily undertaken, exploration is exciting, learning is student-centered and confidence reigns supreme.
It’s not about getting rid of the great things we’ve always done in the art room – the iPad and other technology can be valuable additions to your teaching tool kit. The studio really is a place where tech and teaching can work together to enhance student creativity, visual literacy, divergent thinking, ideation and more.
iPad Art Room provides resources, ideas and insights into the reinvention of Year 6-12 Visual Art programs using the SAMR Model to merge traditional art making processes with innovative content, techniques and ways of thinking. Through these posts you’ll find lots of lesson ideas, teaching tips, resources and most importantly, inspiration. You’ll also see real examples from the classroom, because I’m a real teacher!
“Hunt provides a wealth of information on the use of the iPad for art activities including everything from turning clay apps to stop-motion animation. However, the examples she showcases can be used in any content area as a creative assessment. In addition, the layout and organization of this iBook is stunning and can serve as a model for how an education-related ebook should look and function.” review via Kathy Schrock
