Word Cloud Self-Portraits - Dryden Art - 4 views

  •  
    "If I were doing this project today I would have students do every step on the iPad using 
    1. Notes to brainstorm and write their 75 words
    2. Word Cloud to paste in and create their cloud then design their layout
    3. Superimpose to layer their images together, mask their photo, and save
    I have a tutorial showing how to layer and mask images using the green screen app here.
    The images can also be layered in the latest version of the Green Screen app by DoInk now that you can resize images."

How California Schools Are Using Art to Boost Achievement | The California Report | KQE... - 1 views

  •  
    "In a first-grade classroom at Peralta Elementary School in Oakland, children concentrate on detailed pencil drawings of scenes from the underground railroad. Safehouses and trap doors appear on paper. One boy is drawing dogs with pointy teeth.

    Here at Peralta, art is never just about art. These first-graders are learning about history, but they're also practicing math, measuring with their fingers to figure out where to draw horizon lines. Teacher Pam Lucker is helping the students include perspective."

Teaching Art, Or Teaching To Think Like An Artist? - 1 views

  •  
    "Be creative. Curious. Seek questions. Develop ideas. Play.

    These ideas are familiar to modern educators, as they represent a kind of polar opposite to the standardized and industrialized form learning has taken on-or is at least perceived to have taken on in the current era of accountability. It was an interesting then to see these questions lead into a broader one: Should we teach art, or teach students to think like an artist? Should we teach history, or teach students to think like an historian?"

Why we made homework 'Optional'? - 2 views

  •  
    Of all the topics that can be discussed around Education, homework is possibly the one most likely to cause heated debate. It is either an essential component of learning, the foundation of positive behaviours for learning as an adult or a waste of time and energy that robs students of valuable time with family and friends. But can we make homework something that benefits everyone?

The Art of Classroom App Smashing - 4 views

  •  
    "App Smashing is relatively new (2+/- years) in the world of technology. Device users app smash when one app does not serve all the needs of a project. When that is the case, a person will do parts of a project in one app, parts in another app, and then smash them together to create something that otherwise would have not been possible to create. The art of app smashing is to think outside of the box and make apps work for you. There certainly is no right or wrong way to app smash. Bring out your creativity and imagination and you will be amazed with the digital products that you and your students will be able to create."

Turn iPad Art into Joyous 3D Figures with the Foldify App - 0 views

  •  
    "It's a beautiful thing when students can use digital tools to build real world creations. While 3D printing is still a little on the expensive side, the Foldify app does an amazing job allowing students to create their own three dimensional paper masterpieces. Using the app, students can choose different paper templates, paint them digitally, model them in 3D, then print for assembly in the real world. It really is a delightfully fun, creative and rewarding experience."

Magnification for Making | iPad Art Room - 2 views

  •  
    "I've been looking at the art-making potential of the Exo Lab scope over the past couple of weeks. In exploring ideas for the creative classroom, it's obvious that there is real potential in this device to enhance opportunities to create rich learning experiences across teaching areas.

    So here's the scope (below). It's so easy to use - you simply connect it to your iPad and start exploring using an app that couples with the camera. You can take photographs, time-lapse, video recordings, make annotations and measurements… In this project I am using the pictured 'Discovery Stand', which allows you to get up-close, but there are attachments that go into a microscope too. We used those to investigate 'The World's Smallest Monster Drawing' a few weeks ago."

Van Gogh and the Algorithm: How Math Can Save Art - TIME - 1 views

  •  
    "With math equations that analyze brush strokes, new discoveries about the world's greatest art are possible.

    It took X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and a painting algorithm to reveal the hidden portrait of a peasant underneath the painting of Vincent Van Gogh's "Patch of Grass." And that feat, accomplished in 2008, was just the beginning."

Let's Create using virtual pottery! | iPad Art Room - 0 views

  •  
    "Have you made digital vessels on your iPad? Yes, you can create clay vases on iPad! 'Let's Create Pottery HD' is a wonderful tool to support teaching and learning in your classroom.

    Firstly, let me assure you that using the iPad in a creative workflow in my classroom is not about 'getting rid of clay'. Art teachers know how valuable those 'hands-on making' experiences can be for our students as they grapple with this challenging medium and the multi-step process of building a large-scale object from the ground up.

    The Pottery app has immense value in the classroom for other reasons."
