This has been a big year for virtual conferences since many art associations have switched their formats from in-person to online. This year I'm virtually traveling to present in Georgia, Texas, Michigan, and Illinois to share a Keynote and presentations about our transdigital art and augmented reality. I also had the opportunity to host a Twitter chat for anyone thanks to the Grundlers who host #K12artchat
Do the Dryden Dos Wins Award at ISTE!
Back in September I gathered a group of fifth graders to join the Fugleflick Filmmaking club. I challenged them to create a movie about "activating change" in our school community. We looked at our Dryden Dos (to be safe, caring, and responsible) and tried to come up with a strong student-centered video that could educate and encourage the school to do the Dryden Dos while at the same time meeting the qualifications for the Global Student Voice Film Festival (#GSVFF) to be held in Philadelphia at ISTE19.
10 Take Aways from my first ISTE
iPads help students demonstrate learning in dynamic ways. Learn about transparency as students animate a ghost over a photo, practice vocabulary by speaking through artwork, observe reflection with a custom hologram, and assess rotational symmetry by rotating designs digitally. Let's fill your STEAM toolbox with creative ideas to teach anything.
I put some of my many many ideas in a thinglink so you could explore my resources by finding the link when you mouse over the images below.
All of my ideas are on my SMORE page.
I presented and attended conference sessions at Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL where Jennifer encouraged us model digital leaders on social media, Carrie challenged us to gamify our classroom, Leah showed us how sketchnoting helps students with visual processing, and the authors of #nowclassrooms explain how we can move from Novice to Operational to WOW technology integration.
Here is my animated sketchnote from #ice18 conference day. I don't think it communicates very well to others what I was learning, but it helps me remember what I felt was important from each session I attended.
How I animated my Sketchnote
I presented a session called Animate your Lessons to Dynamically Demonstrate Learning. I shared dozens of ways teachers could use animation techniques with their students to integrate technology, art, and any subject to energize and engage their students. All of my lessons are found at one link that point back to my blog post with how to's, tutorials, resources, and student examples. Explore all 226+ here:
