I am in the process of compiling .jpg images of some students work for BOT, an online and e-book exhibition of children responding to the theme Robots. This project is co-ordinated by Matt Cauthron, an American Art Teacher. Visit the website http://studentcreative.org to see current and previous STUDENT CREATIVE GLOBAL ART CHALLENGES.
My Year One’s have been creating robot-like masks while working with iPads. Is technology turning us into robots?
Each year there is a competition for students to design the logo for their Year Jacket they each receive as a memento of their time in the Junior School.
All Year 6 students designed a logo.
Over 260 were submitted by 78 students across Year 6.
From these, 5 members of staff edit it down to The Final Three.
All students in Year then have a secret ballot vote from these final 3 to determine which logo will adorn their Year Jacket.
The children of Year 6 had the great opportunity to work with our Artist in Residence in the Junior School, Kaye Clancy. Kaye is a renowned ceramic artist in Australia. She has work in the collections of numerous public galleries in Australia. In Term 3 and 4, the children learnt new skills, techniques, and processes and extended on their hand-building experiences to construct clay self-portraits with decorative frames. The children were introduced to exiting ways to finish and decorate their work with slips, coloured underglazes, and earthernware overglazes. These finished clay works have been combined into a collaborative wall mural artwork that is displayed at the Junior School as a memento of the Year 6 class of 2014.
The Google Cultural Institute brings together millions of artifacts from multiple partners, with the stories that bring them to life, in a virtual museum.
Cosmos Bubbles was made for the Vimeo’s Weekend Project : One Minute of Reflection.
The rules were :

“When we cook in every day’s life we produce chemical reactions. I wanted to focus in these beautiful tiny little elements trying to connect or to push away from each other.”

Many obstacles that iPad cynics attempt to put in place when discussing a roll-out are based on untruths, poorly research and/or out-of-date information. I was delighted when my Canadian Twitter friend and fellow iPad blogger, Steve Lai decided to join forces, as we’ve done before, to combat this dis-information that floats around the education profession worldwide.
This Post explains how to argue a Case for iPads in the Classroom.
A collaboration between iPad Educators:

Preamble: This article is to support iPads in teaching. However, it is not to devalue the benefits of a great teacher. The execution of iPads in class is only going to go as far as the passions and mindset of the teacher allows it to. In other words, the iPad will never replace quality teaching.
