Come and make a mess as we seamlessly combine hands-on practices and processes, tactile materials and mobile devices for creativity! This workshop will provide you with the confidence, tools and tactics you need to enhance creativity, visual literacy and divergent thinking using mobile devices for learning in your classroom. Full of apps, lesson ideas and concrete examples from real classrooms, this course is a lot of fun and very hands-on. We’ll mix paint and pixels, iPads and everything else, as we explore lessons unpacking the concept of abstraction, use reflected images to create kaleidoscopes, get Escher-esque drawing digital tessellations, create images with type, make talking sculptures and build timelapse towers. You'll laugh as we learn about some seriously useful pedagogical approaches for rich, cross-curricular lesson design. Want more? Well, you’ll have to come to the workshop! Must have an iPad. Also, a number of free apps will be required for participation in this 'hands-on' workshop. Please watch for an email to you two weeks before this event with a list of those to download prior to arriving in Palm Springs.Presenter ResourcesAll pre-registered attendees signed up for zero dollar (free) workshops must be in a seat five minutes prior to the beginning of the workshop.
