What can exploring art do for enhancing and developing career skills?
I have used a website called Storyboardthat where students create a comic strip based off of a book we have read. This allows students to practice using technology and explore ways to integrate art and technology. This is one way that students can develop and enhance their skills if they are interested in creating comic books or graphic design. Integrating art into your lessons allows students to explore their creativity and make a connection to what you are teaching which could help them later on in their careers - communication skills, problem solving skills, time management skills.
What types of technologies have you used that shares a link with art? Include at least one link to a technology that could be used in the classroom.
Like I previously stated, a website called Storyboardthat allows students to create comic strips, and I have used it to have them retell a story. I have also used the app Symbaloo to allow students to upload pictures of their work (writing, drawing) and they are able to edit their work on the app as well.
What are your "takeaways" from the article and videos?
This class has shown me how easily art can be integrated into various subjects, and this specific section has shown how you can also integrate technology with art. I have used some technology and art in my class, but after seeing the other posts and reading the articles, I have more tools in my toolbelt.
