Art Teacher, Church Lane Elementary
The introduction of the new devices has expanded the possibilities for student learning in Art. They are a great tool in which the students have the opportunity in self directing their own learning. The children are engaged with interactive activities, thought provoking problem solving lessons and programs where the resources are readily available with a click or finger swipe. The students work together to navigate through the programs and share information in maneuvering the commands to land themselves onto the correct screen. Watching how quickly they learn to manipulate the device for the desired outcome is a joy to watch. The children are excited, engaged and their joy of learning is evident in the new ways they are expressing their artistic talents.
