This year, Cathy Hunt will be presenting a workshop at ACLE:
Art & ‘App-itudes’: Using the iPad for 21st Century Teaching and Learning in the Creative Classroom.
” Why should you, and how do you, mix new technology and iPad power with the ‘hands on’ tasks of a creative classroom? Well, step into my iPad Art Room and see how teaching and learning can be transformed with iPads and other mobile devices.”
You’ll explore new ways to engage students with creative processes in a learning space that extends well-beyond the studio walls. The SAMR MODEL is a useful framework for seamlessly merging traditional curriculum with innovative pedagogy and 21st Century skills for students. You’ll come away from this session ready to identify where modification and redefinition can being in your classroom, ignite your students creativity by developing engaging tasks and use the iPad to produce creative content for teaching and learning. “
Some key questions to engage with at the ACLE conference and in Cathy’s presentation:
- What is the role of Lutheran Schools in developing wise citizens of the 21st century?
- What contemporary educational movements need to be engaged, to make Lutheran schooling better?
- What 21st tehnologies will meet the aims of Lutheran schooling?
- What shapes quality education in a Lutheran school?
