The new improved version of the Kindness Campaign is inspired by the moving paintings in the Harry Potter stories. This time around we will attempt to make the posters come to life with augmented reality so we needed more movement than just the wings. We also wanted to make sure our youngest students can the messages even if they can't read yet. See our first version, Kindness Campaign: Moving Memes
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.
Art teachers in Wisconsin Rapids, WI wanted training in technology integration using iPads. They had recently acquired some iPads (not at 1:1 yet) for their art room. I shared a full day of my creation based transdigital lessons with them. Many of the ideas I shared had both a physical art making component and a digital extension that encompassed more art concepts as well as touching on the national art standards of creating, presenting, responding, and connecting.
All of my art lessons are indexed on my smore page.

I've spent months playing with augmented reality in preparation for bringing into my classroom. My 5th graders were my first students to go through the steps I had envisioned of making art, making the art move through animation, then witnessing the art come alive with augmented reality as they scan the art and see the animation.
I wrote about this lesson and every step involved in this post.
