My contribution to this article from Tech News World is on the topic of teaching a new generation.
Read the story here or browse my excerpt below:
"I use technology in art instruction and art production with all my k-5 population," said art instructor Tricia Fuglestad, who incorporates a variety of digital technologies into her lesson plans at Dryden Elementary School."We explore art concepts digitally through interactive lessons on the interactive board, and we use our green screen and video-editing tools to make Fugleflicks, [which are] student-created, art-related movies," she told TechNewsWorld.
Video-editing and sharing technologies have become central to art education for Fuglestad, and she says they give her students new and unique ways of expressing themselves and communicating.
"Because of my access to technology, I can open up new opportunities for my students to extend and enhance their learning," said Fuglestad. "I've been able to connect my students to authentic audiences [and] give them art-making opportunities like animation moviemaking and graphic design that would otherwise be inaccessible."
Warning: You may catch the Fuglevision (it's very contagious and there is no cure)
