What can exploring art do for enhancing and developing career skills?
Art can do many things for students over their time in school. Students can learn to be creative which is so important in many jobs especially as we move forward with technology. Students also look at art and observe it differently. That will help them in being able to see other points of view in their career. Art comes in many different forms so students understand how feelings could be expressed through music, drawings, painting, dance, and more. This helps them understand others and how they can express themselves.
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.
In my class students have an option weekly to do a school appropriate site. Students enjoy working on ABCya. It has a lot of different options to integrate art.
http://www.abcya.com/abcya_paint.htm Code is a site that is challenging and helps students learn about coding. The site has many different things you can do. Students are interested in this website because they can pick to work with characters from Frozen, Minecraft, and many other things.
What are your "takeaways" from the article and videos?
I learned how important art is to students and how it can help them grow. Art is something that can help them while they are young and continue throughout their life. It is important to implement art into other subjects or alone in the everyday classroom setting. Using art students can connect with one another and learn how to see things from other perspectives.
