My goal is for my students to experience Art using Technology as a colorful additional medium in the art classroom.  


What will be done with my students

Students will have multiple opportunities to use technology and explore art in a fun, creative, and engaging way. It will allow a whole new level of creativity at their fingertips. They will be able to use the iPads individually and in groups. They will have the opportunity to teach each other, work collaboratively together, and share ideas and suggestions with one another. For example, they will be able to take a piece of their artwork that they have created, then take a picture of it with the iPad, and using an art app to add words, pictures or anything else to their project. Also some of my students who have disabilities and can't hold a pencil, will be able to be included and can create their own artwork as well as participate in group activities. There are so many different apps that can be used to aide in student learning. Students can practice how to draw an object and see the finished product on the iPad before they use a pencil and paper. 


Benefits to my students

Students will benefit by having iPads in the art room in so many different ways. Students will also be more actively participating during instructional time as well as on their own. iPads also allow students to create a quick art piece without getting messy, in a short amount of time! There are so many wonderful art apps for students to use and learn and I can't wait to share them with my students.


Budget Narrative

I only have one old lap top for students to use. I want to start building more mobile technology into the art classroom for students to work individually and in groups. One day I would love to have a classroom set.
