Second grade students make a snowman, then take a flight with him using art, animation, and imagination
First graders made digital snowmen then put them into a snow globe animation. Read below to find out how and snag my resources so you can try it too.
If you have been following me on twitter, you would know that I'm currently in an augmented reality frenzy. I keep wanting to make everything around me and my students come to life with augmented reality. I now have a collection of children's book covers that come to life through animation and the EyeJack app. Explore them here.
The Sneetches comes to life using the EyeJack app after the effect is loaded by scanning the QR code.
This animation was made by
1. making out the character using Brushes Redux
2. Tracing the character in Do Ink Drawing app
3. Copying it multiple times and redrawing arms and legs in different poses to create a walking sequence
4. Then I used Do Ink composition mode to combine the masked photo and walking animation with a path.
5. I duplicated/flipped it to make it walk back.
This movie became the overlay and the original cover was the trigger in Eyejack app.
I had the honor of working with the awesome art teachers of Cobb County, Georgia on their professional development day. I did a 70 minute workshop (3xs) for art teachers who wanted to learn how to integrate technology into their art programs using the iPad. Curated a few Transdigital art examples from my 266 STEAM art lessons indexed on my SMORE page (bookmark this page).
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.
With the help of over a dozen supporters making generous donations to my Donor's Choose professional development grant, I was able to attend the National Art Education Conference in Boston. Thank you to the Dryden parents, teachers from my online personal learning network on twitter, and art teacher colleagues from around the country who donated!
First graders were introduced to Rembrandt through a 15 minute portion of the Greatest Artists Video. We looked at how he painted people showing emotions. Then we used this handout below to see a simplified contour line drawing of a face and matched it to Rembrandts' faces by emotions.
We are the 2nd place winner of the ISTE Technology in Action Video Contest.
