iPad Apps, Lessons and Ideas for Art-Making

 
iPads are powerful tools for art-making and creativity in the classroom and beyond. Students can engage with content in interactive ways, find information in an instant, and create their own imagery anywhere, anytime. Using digital devices, mistakes can be easily erased, experiments are easily undertaken, exploration is exciting and confidence reigns supreme.

How do you effectively integrate technology into the hands-on classroom? Start here! The lessons, apps and ideas I share are grounded in the belief that ‘messy’ making and tactile exploration should remain at the core of rich learning experiences in education. It is in combination with effective lesson design and pedagogical practices that the iPad and other mobile devices can be valuable additions to your teaching tool kit, alongside clay tools, paint, etc.
