Presentation Description: Classrooms across America use digital story telling apps to enhance students’ understanding and learning. Why stop at one app? App Smashing is a technology integration technique where students use two or more apps to create an original work. When app smashing, students process and share information through diverse apps that require different abilities (writing, speaking, drawing). Classrooms can create original, creative, and innovative stories that showcase learning and deepen students’ knowledge.

Presentation Description: Integrating technology, web 2.0, and interactive tools in the art room gives students the opportunity to enhance their 21st-century learning skills, practice creative problem-solving, and develop higher-level thinking as they create art. Showcasing student work through online venues opens your art room doors to an authentic global audience, connect students with others in collaborations, and enriches learning for all. I will share stories and examples from my technology rich elementary art room and how our online connections have enthralled, enriched and engaged my students.
Please take a moment to look around my website/blog to see all the exciting ways my K-5 art students use technology for instruction, art production, and connecting with a global audience. We would love to hear from you!
