Painting on iPads
A video slideshow from Dryden Elementary (posted on June 19, 2011)
For 2 1/2hrs a day for four day a group of 4th-6th graders wowed me with their amazing artwork on iPads. They were so smart about navigating the ipads, understanding the apps, and fearlessly creating art in a way they never tried before. They used layers, transparency, zoomed in/out, tried brush sizes and styles and then ran their final work through some photo apps for even more fun. What i heard the most is that they want to do this all the time. Three of the 10 students went home and emailed me more work from their own devices made on their own time. Not only were they able to understand the concepts in class, they applied them willingly at home. What an energizing and fun class to teach!
