4th graders finished their Son of Man Spoof inspired by the Surrealistic painting by Rene Magritte. View the original here. The portrait painting is missing some important features...like eyes, nose, and mouth. Our apple, blended with tints and shades covers over the face but slightly hovers so you can peek underneath to see our surreal secret.
I have done a presentation called Creative Digital Projects that turn Stem to STEAM at three conferences over the past couple of years. These 45-50 minute presentations include a bizillion ideas in a media packed keynote file that I have trouble sharing online. However I did create a condensed version of the presentation for the AOE Online Conference last summer. The presentation has been behind a pay wall for one year and can finally come out for public consumption now. The following lessons are shared in the video below. Learn more from my links. Also, see Wes Fryer's review of my live presentation at the Illinois Computer Educator's Conference here.
I'm gearing up for the school year by collecting my resources and making them easily available for anyone who wants to learn some of my tips for how to create on the iPad. There are tons of apps in the app store, but I tried to limit my ideas to only a few so that we can work with what we have on our school iPads while I explore other apps and begin writing grants to get them in the future. (100 ipads=$$ for each app purchase) so I'm trying to keep it simple. Below is a screen shot of the new page I added to my website. Visit it here. There are links leading to resources, videos, tutorials, and files that you can download from your iPad and get started playing right away.
My fourth graders have the iPads for one month which means that we get extended digital art-making experiences! YEAH. Our first piece is a digital spoof on the painting called, Son of Man by Surrealist Rene Magritte.
Students were asked to replace the apple with a personal healthy choice. We all wore the bowler hat to reference the original piece. View the original here. View our gallery here.
