Exploring iPads and Art-Making in Practice and Pedagogy

 
A redefinition of creativity is required for the contemporary student in the context of an unpredictable future, a world of fast-paced development and complex problems. The Arts offer valuable opportunities for students to engage with different ways of constructing knowledge as they explore multiple perspectives, learn to rely on their imagination, leverage divergent thinking, harness interpretive abilities, etc. It makes sense that a future-driven education must promote strong links between technology and the ability to create.

I often write about practices and pedagogies for digital devices that provide a conduit between important opportunities for learning and hands-on art-making. Jump into these posts to explore these themes in my articles, musings and lessons learned in partnership with educators, parents and students from across the globe.
