9-12 | The Arts | Digital Storytelling

Station KBYU in Utah

My Classroom Innovation

Students were exposed to seasons 1-6 of Art 21, where these professional contemporary artist shared the ideas and methodology of their work. Students used digital story telling to discuss their year's journey exploring their art. We became a classroom where the camera was always present, to document and later for student and teacher reflection.

Students have been taking cameras how and talking about their creative process and artwork much like the Art:21 Artists do.

How Students were Engaged

Students became very comfortable sharing their thoughts, ideas and intentions on video. I have a classroom set of Flip-like cameras which students used to record conversations, collaborative interactions and self reflection on art and art making.
