Narrated Art Projects (February 2013)


Published on

A breakout presentation by Wesley Fryer at the 2013 ICE Conference outside Chicago, Illinois. Draw a picture or take a picture, and then record your voice with a website or app which shares your recording with your image. Narrated Art Projects provide excellent opportunities to practice meta-cognition, use nonlinguistic representation to boost student achievement, and improve oral communication skills. In this workshop we’ll view and discuss examples of student-created narrated art, and also create examples together in the session. Websites like AudioBoo and SoundCloud offer cloud-based audio recording and sharing using free smartphone applications as well as browser-based interfaces. Apps like ShowMe and Draw & Tell for iPad can streamline the creation and sharing of narrated art. Learn how narrated art projects can become important elements in students’ digital portfolios.

  5. 5. ...when assigning a project, teachers look formastery of content and allow students to takeownership of how they present that content. Ateacher may ask students to demonstrate theirknowledge of photosynthesis, but rather thangive them a specific means of doing so, will allowthe students to use any available resources to doso. This not only gets the students innovatingmore as they navigate through this task, butmore importantly makes each student’sexperience unique and gives them ownershipover the product they produce. Some students 15 Marchmay make posters, some a voicethread, some a 2012powerpoint or prezi, but this should be noproblem for the educator as they are assessingon mastery learning objectives and not actualmeans of presenting them.
