Shout out to these folks I got to learn from during the conference... check their blogs:
Holly Bess Kincaid
It was so cool to see their presentations and what they do with their kiddos. A big thing I want to infuse is more technology use through student digital portfolios, artist statements, 3D printing, and more digital art (I know one thing at a time - I just get so excited.).
Another shout out to the Jack Richeson & Co. folks for supplying me with some great watercolor painting supplies for my presentation session. Lots of folks walked away with cool stuff! A BIG Thank YOU to a top notch art supply company!!!
I want to give mention to 3D-molding.com this morning. A friend shared a maker rubric from Edutopia with me, and I just had to share on Twitter. 3D-molding asked me to complete an online interview... and in return give them a mention. So - check them out by clicking on their links above.
The interview tied so well to all the things rolling around in my head from #NAEA15 ...and those National Board entries I am working on. Which - I really need to get back to working on those entries, SO... a quick list of things I have goals of implementing or adopting in some way in the next year:
- better student planning/brainstorming forms for projects
- maker bots, circuit boards, apps that go with them
- video game design (for all my little gamer kiddos)
- technology - more!!! - using Artsonia, Schoology, and/or Edmodo
- maybe we can eventually incorporate 3D printing, too
If you went to #NAEA15 in NOLA, what was your big take-away? How will you implement what you learned in your classroom?
Artfully Yours... Nikki K.
