I plan on sharing about two dozen animation based lesson ideas that any teacher could use to give their students the tools to demonstrate understanding of curricular content with dynamic media. It's a fun, engaging, and potentially transformative way to teach. Below are interactive images in thinglink of my presentation handouts. Mouse over and click the ideas you want to explore. It will take you to the post where you can find my resources. Each lesson has a number that corresponds to a number in my Smore Flyer.
Resource: The Internet was Created for Good
My students made this PSA video on how to use the internet for good as their entry into an online student contest. They came in 2nd place nation-wide. The entire movie was animated using Keynote. See if you can identify the different builds and actions used.
Resource: I AM ART
This Fugleflick, I AM ART, was made using keynote animation with green screen effects in iMovie. It's an awesome resource for introducing categories of art to students.
Resource: Careers in Art
Careers in Art, winner of Nextvista.org's video of the year in 2011, was animated using keynote. The photos were outlined by the technique shown here and the intro was a cool discovery I explain in this tutorial.
I put together this short movie below to showcase how we infuse creativity and technology in Dryden's Art Program. This video has been included in the K12 Online Conference collaborative video about creativity crafted by Samuel Wright in Vienna. It includes a peek into almost a dozen international educators' classrooms. Learn more.

I have resources in my blog for everything above so I decided to make a shortcut for you and linking to everything here:
Almost a dozen international arts teachers gathered through a google hangout in time zones that spanned the globe to discuss creativity. Watch the recorded discussion here.
I was fortunate enough to attend and present at the National Art Education Conference in NYC this pas week. I went to fascinating sessions, networked with some amazing art educators from around the country, and had the chance to share our iPad animation lessons with others through my presentation.
I got through slide 90 of 150 during my presentation of Elementary iPad Animation. I have way too much to share on this topic right now (which I think is pretty exciting). I have been updating

with my lesson ideas here. This handout is pointing back to the numbered lessons from the flyer where you can find "how tos" and resources.
Or download the handout as a PDF here.
I just returned from my state art education conference in Bloomington-Normal, IL. I had opportunities to mingle with art teachers from across the state, attend presentations on a variety of topics, present on iPad animation ideas, attend award luncheons and gallery receptions, hang out with my D25 colleagues, connect with artists, special presenters, exhibitors, see my student honored for her artwork which was selected for the traveling exhibit, and soak in lots of ideas for how to improve my art program at Dryden.
I learned about a stand alone system called Game Frame that plays pixel art as an animation. I also learned about Glitch Art made from intentionally corrupting an image file by changing it to a .txt file playing with the code then reverting back to .jpg. I went to try this during the Hour of Code week with my 5th graders. I also saw some demonstrations of Aurasma from D211 high school art teachers and visualized some solutions that might work for bringing augmented reality to our Dryden art displays.
Last year I was out of the swing of things since I had to take time off tohelp my husband in his recovery from a serious injury. He and I both went back to school this year and with that came my desire to present at the National Art Education Conference in Chicago. Fortunately, my district supported the entire art team when we expressed our interest in this amazing professional development opportunity.
iPad Animation iDeas
The last time I did an elementary carousel I had a cozy little group around my table for each rotation. This time it was a ridiculously large group. My 50 handouts ran out after my first two rotations so I posted them below.Use this link to my ever increasing collection of digital art lessons online to find each iPad animation idea numbered below.
I hope this doesn't look like bragging, but I wanted to create a visual that shows the awards I've won in my career. If you knew my story of how I struggled all my life with painful shyness and was almost fired my first year due very much to my inability to step into the role as leader in the classroom then you too would see this image as an encouragement. I started to bloom as a teacher as soon as I took a step outside of my classroom. The sunlight of community and water of encouragement helped me grow in the soil composed of students who keep me firmly grounded.
Presentations I attended
On Friday morning I woke up at 5am to commute again into the city hoping to arrive in time to catch Janine and Cassie present on Leaving a Legacy. Their presentation was so inspiring. I was particularly touched when I saw that Janine included two slides that gave me and my students a shout out. So honored! But, I must say the whole experience was sweetened by sitting next to Cathy Hunt from Australia. I've been following her for years online and was thrilled beyond belief to finally meet her face to face.
I had the opportunity topresent a breakout session at the Illinois Computer Educator Conference today (ICE). It was the first time since 2013 when Wesley Fryer sat in and live blogged my session (see his post here). I found myself extra nervous but some wonderful friends from my PLN came by to support me which boosted my courage. See their picts below. The above image is a sketchnote from three sessions I attended today including Adam Bellow's Keynote, Ben Grey's Spotlight, and Hether Hoffman's poster session. I found that I do a much better job of synthesizing information when I try to communicate it with images.
Here is a quick sampling of my animation lessons and ideas that would help students demonstrate understanding of art concepts in a dynamic, motivating, and powerful way.
Thank you to the conference organizers, Peg Speirs and Nicole Romanski, who wrote a grant as part of the Kutztown Sesquicentennial Events to have me do a workshop with their pre-service art education majors as well as present to the conference attendees comprised of local art educators. Here is the calendar of events (It's so cool to be featured here). Learn more about the conference here.
I wasn't able to attend theNational Art Education Association Conference this year since I'm on a medical leave to help my husband recover from a motorcycle accident. I had 4 presentations scheduled: one alone, and three with others. I planned on canceling all of my involvement and just watching the action from the sidelines this year via twitter. However, one of my co-presenters, Alice Gentili, suggested that she would present my material for me so that our presentation could continue. We had a plan to share about how our students' art experience is enriched by extending the learning digitally. I decided to take her up on the offer and put my thoughts together in a video format. She pieced my ideas in with hers in a powerpoint and played my video segment to the conference attendees (how cool was that!). View her presentation here. S0, even though I was far away form my friends in NOLA, I was still able to share my classroom with them.

I wrote and received an Illinois Computer Educator professional development grant to attend MACUL, the Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning Conference, in Grand Rapids, MI. I put in a proposal to present with my friend Janine Campbell, middle school art teacher from Byron Center, MI, and we were accepted! It was an honor to have our presentation accepted at a conference of over 3,500 attendees. We presented on student created movies to teach curriculum. I met some of my Twitter PLN face to face including @karlyb @jesscrandell @thenerdyteacher @rushtonh @gcouros There were many more I follow that I didn't get to connect with (or only briefly) and many more I hope to connect with from now on. On Friday's opening session, I tried visual note taking and shared my drawing on Twitter. It was retweeted a bunch of times. It's funny how twitter can make you feel like you're connected even when the crowd is huge and you know so few people. Below is my #viznote drawn in the Brushes App.
But wait, there's more. I saw this keynote at ICE two weeks ago & wrote this reflection.
Janine and I have been making movies with our students for years. She shared her perspective and strategies as a middle school teacher and I shared mine as an elementary school teacher. If you want to learn more, we have our presentations online:

or attend our presentation at the NAEA conference in San Diego to learn from us in person. One thing George Couros suggested in his Teachers on Twitter session is that you should make a Storify of your tweets of the feedback you receive on your presentation. Janine and I encouraged our crowd to tweet something they learned from our session and awarded an @iPevo product to the first person to tweet out first on our behalf. Congrats again to Jessica for winning the iPevo wireless keyboard and case!
