  8. 8. Technology Integration asks … Teachers to teach in ways they were never taught using tools that were not invented when they were in school. Teachers need to be innovative, content driven, and process oriented to ultimately improve student achievement.
  9. 9. Session Objectives:  Teachers will enhance PRODUCTIVITY using a lesson plan template using google spreadsheets or EXCEL  Teachers will ENHANCE COMMUNICATION using the following technology 1. Teachers will create a classroom website using Wordpress or Weebly 2. Teachers will know about Google Docs, collaborate on a shared google presentation (about me presentation- lesson plan template) 3. Teachers will learn to communicate/share with other art teachers- Dropbox – Curtis Lewis 4. Teachers will understand and be able to use Edmodo with their students in order to encourage appropriate art criticism, communication and discussion.  Teachers will understand how to enhance INSTRUCTION using iPads to deliver and differentiate instruction.  Teachers will leave with a digital portfolio with links to all their resources!!!

Google has their own version of WORD, SPREADSHEETs, WEBSITES, and Presentations (powerpoint) But teachers and students can collaborate on them together in real time.
  13. 13. Google Presentations- Digital portfolio You will complete this task by creating a Collaborative Google Presentation. This is a collaborative project that your students could post pictures of their artwork and comment on another student‘s Go to: Google presentation Copy each presentation slide and customize it by adding your own information.

  15. 15. Communication Tools and Art Criticism- Edmodo • Edmodo is an online communication tool that can be used my art teachers to 1. Have students post pictures of their artwork 2. Learn how to make constructive comments on their artwork and the work of others using the ELEMENTS AND principles of art. 3. Extend learning beyond the classroom
  16. 16. Communication Tools: Class Websites- Wordpress- Why? • A well-designed website will • greatly enhance • communication between you and your students • You’re creating an archive of your class – complete with the exact materials you’ve used • A teaching website keeps you organized and on track • It’s getting so easy to do that it can actually save you time • You have an easy answer to “What did I miss?” • Your contributions go farther than you think • It’s okay to show off • It’s your gateway to engagement
  17. 17. Communication Wordpress Websites
  18. 18. Wordpress – From Mr. Clark Many of the teachers may have existing websites in FirstClass with web pages and content on them. Rather than linking to their blank WordPress site from their school website, I can send you the web addresses of each art teacher‘s WordPress site. Then the teachers can work on their WordPress sites during your training session and email me when they are ready to go live with their new site. Please note that District is using a self-hosted version of WordPress, which is different from No one will need to register an account. One I have provisioned their WordPress sites, they will be able to log right in to edit the site using the same e00 username and password which they use to login to their computer, FirstClass and Sungard BusinessPlus.

  26. 26. Difference between Posts and Pages? *Note: Posts are entries organized by categories automatically making the site more user-friendly for you, your visitors and search engines. If you use ―posts‖ and ―categories‖, Wordpress can organize your site navigation and information architecture for you. This is one of the biggest advantages to using a Content Management System (CMS) program instead of coding individual web pages by hand. Organizing around posts can also improve page, especially if you create categories based on your keyword phrases.

  36. 36. iPads in Art! • Today is an exciting time to be an art teacher! New technology makes teaching Art and learning Art a whole new experience. • iPads bring a whole other layer to creative learning. Students are very much actively participating in the learning. iPads provide a quick method of art production, manipulation, and exploration - all without the need for putting on a paint shirt! The possibilities for what knowledge can be found and artwork created using this wonderful tech tool is endless. New apps are constantly being created. • in-art.html
  37. 37. Access to iPads? • Our school is going to 1 to 1. Currently , the iPad art projects were done with a 2 to 1 student to iPad ratio. So students had to bring their iPads to art and partners had to share. • If you only have one iPad, you will have to consider how to manage use of your iPad in order to complete digital art projects. • If you do not have iPads, you may want to consider a grant, fundraiser, or other project in order to buy devices like iPods, iTouch, or other mobile device. The other option is organizing a BYOD- Bring your own device to art.
  38. 38. Reflector • Reflector is an AirPlay receiver that allows you to wirelessly display your iPad or iPhone on your computer. Mirror your device on a big screen without wires or complicated setups. Play games, watch movies, demo apps or present on the big screen from your iPhone or iPad. With Reflector, everything you do on your mobile device is wirelessly streamed to your computer in real time! If you have an iPad and a projector, you can use REFLECTOR to broadcast your screen
  39. 39. iPad apps for Productivity • iMovie- Take pictures or video yourself doing your lesson. Upload your video to youtube. Play it for each class and put it on your webpage for students to review at home- FLIPPED LEARNING!! • Use iMovie to take pictures of student work. Upload video to youtube and embed it in your web page as a student gallery • NUMBERS app- Numbers is a spreadsheet app that I use to keep track of student progress (MY MARZANO GOAL) I mark attendence, stop and think, treasure box and when they finish art work.- It‘s a little pricy (I paid 9.99!! Ugh)
  40. 40. Our 1st iPad Art Lesson- Elements ofArt Silhouettes • Application: Sketchbook express • Introduction: • Review the seven elements of art (older students could review elements and the principles) • Students (or teacher)will take a profile photo of themselves or of another student. • Open /install Sketchbook express (free!!)

  50. 50. Technology Standards • NETS-S: ISTE‘s Technology Foundation Standards for All Students (NETS) include six categories for addressing necessary technology skills: 1. Basic operations and concepts 2. Social, ethical, and human issues 3. Technology productivity tools 4. Technology communications tools 5. Technology research tools 6. Technology problem-solving and decision-making tools
  51. 51. Boost Student Productivity- Project-Based Learning • Writing • Research • Data Analysis • Critical Thinking Presentations of content: Newsletter Multimedia Movie Web-wiki space Blog E-journal Brochure Podcast
  52. 52. Third Piece: The content curriculum and standards The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) believes that: ―To live, learn, and work successful in an increasingly complex and information-rich society, students must be able to use technology effectively.‖ They developed standards to guide educational Leaders in recognizing and addressing the conditions for effective use of technology to support Pre K-12 education. They state, ―Within an effective educational setting, technology can enable students to become--Capable information technology users: • Information seekers, analyzers, and evaluators • Problem solvers and decision makers • Creative and effective users of productivity tools • Communicators, collaborators, publishers, and producers • Informed, responsible, and contributing citizens
  53. 53. Last piece: Technology Tools • What tools do you have at your school site? • What software or hard ware restrictions are there? • What type of room set up and computer preparation is necessary? • Do you know how to use, charge, upload and download all the equipment in your lesson? • How do you select equipment to use?
  54. 54. Tech Tools • Digital Cameras • Software • Scanners, document cameras, tablet pcs, Smartboards, hand held response system, digital video cameras, ipods • What are there functions? • Try it before you teach it! • Evaluate tools to match your needs and class size. • VISUAL TOOLS-remember 70% more
  55. 55. Obstacles to Technology Integration • No access to computers/equipment • Lack Time (to learn, to plan, to organize, to search internet, etc) • No budget or high costs • Class sizes • Preparing for standardized tests • Lack teacher training • Set curriculum or standards • Technical problems (not admin. of machine) • Network down • Power Outage • Intimidating—non-expert status • Too many strategies to try now—one more thing.
  56. 56. TOP TEN INTEGRATION TIPS 1. Start with a lesson you are very familiar with and have taught before 1. Focus on the learning objective 2. Make it interactive and fun 3. Problem based activities will engage and make relevant for students. 4. Do it yourself FIRST (see one, do one, teach one) 5. Build relationships 6. Talk about copyright often! 7. Know the standards (state, NETS, Information Literacy Standards) 8. Revise teaching style to accommodate technology (adaptation) 9. Use peer observations and online video demonstrations as often as possible to learn more! 10. Tap into your students‘ creativity
  57. 57. Your Story • Using PhotoStory and the 10 images you selected earlier, create a digital story about where you are in the technology integration process and describe three goals you have for increasing the amount of technology enhanced lessons you will deliver in the next year!
  58. 58. That is a WRAP! • Workshop evaluation and sharing! • Questions and answers! • Many thanks for your dedication, time and effort today! • Enjoy your day!! • Follow up emails at:
  59. 59. Recap Session Objectives: • We learned how to collaborate on a google presentation live. • We created a word press website. • We discussed and brainstormed technology and art lessons using the ipads. • Discuss how to make effective decisions about the choice of technologies they utilize in their classrooms, and how to evaluate student products. • Teachers will leave with a completed technology enhanced unit plan for their classroom ready to implement!
  60. 60. How to begin? PIZZA process! • Making good choices leads to effective time management. Teachers have to determine what their students need to learn for each assignment. • Then they choose the best way to provide the material and the best way for students to learn it. They can begin by enhancing lessons with technology. • They start by identifying the objectives of a lesson and looking for ways to infuse technology into activities. • VIEW UNIT LESSON PLANNING TOOLS
  61. 61. Find Creative Solutions to problems with Web 2.0 tools • For example: What can I do when it takes students too long to search the internet: • booksite for students sites • bookmarking tool tags collective • pay service to organize internet sites
