This coming September I will be returning to teaching computer literacy. People are always confused about how I am interested in both visual art AND technology. Well, they aren’t mutually exclusive. Think digital art. Think graphic design. Think design thinking. That’s a lot of thinking 🙂
I never really stopped wanting to learn about ways to infuse learning with technology. Kids love tech -the immediacy of information, the interactivity, the ease of sharing. For art, that can mean creating or editing an image and sharing it, or designing a website, or even photographing traditional art and reflecting.
With the intention of using more tech next year, I have lots of professional development scheduled for this summer. I am currently participating in NotAtISTE18 (since I can’t be at the actual ISTE conference). This is a badge I’ve created for inclusion on a Google Slideshare of other educators who are participating. I’ve already learned all kinds of new tech tools that I can share with fellow educators, for classroom use and for organizing the vast amount of information that’s shared on the internet. I’m looking forward to continued learning and sharing!
