The iPad is truly a device for creation! In the Visual Arts classroom, students can use an incredible array of apps and tools to engage with the creative process. But how do you mix the paint with pixels and tradition with technology?
This book explores a range of lessons, apps and ideas for teachers using mobile devices in the classroom. With practical, hands-on guides and examples from real teaching and learning experiences, Cathy Hunt explores the possibilities for your own iPad Art Room. You'll see how the iPad can engage students in art-making, enhance creativity and create possibilities for transformational teaching and learning.
Cathy is an experienced Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator and the founder of ipadartroom.com, an on-line community for teaching and learning in 21st Century Visual Art.
Cathy's website is an incredible resource, but this book packs her ideas, practice and teaching tools into one easy to use resource for teachers. It's not just for art people, either. All creative educators should see how great tasks can create links between digital tools and traditional skills. This book is full of inspiration and practical lesson plans. And you know they work because it's all from her own classroom - it's refreshing to see a real teaching, not just theoretical stuff! Download it!
You don't have to be an art teacher or an art lover to love this book. From the moment I opened the first page, I couldn't wait to touch and link to the video examples and applications. In fact I loved this book so much I didn't linger on any page, but raced through to explore all the different APPS and teaching strategies. I then had to go back to the start again to take the time to fully explore each page and appreciate the "art" and "design" elements of this excellent teaching reference book .
I loved the layout of the book and illustrations, in particular the simple explanations and workflows for the use of specific apps to create engaging teaching strategies . Being a teacher of vocational teachers , I could see how I could use and transfer these strategies , workflows and APPS to enhance my own and colleagues teaching practices.
I cannot recommend this book for just k -12 art teachers. I HIGHLY recommend this book for ANY teacher who wants to challenge themselves and their students by introducing creative thinking and engaging strategies using the iPad and workflow APPS into their classroom.
And for the Lay person, get this book and your iPad and start exploring your own creativity!
Very nice book!!
