First off I need to thank my students, my PLN, my fellow COETAILers and instructors but especially Nicki Hambleton and Anne Driligen. Without these two incredible Art educators this project would not have happened. Making this video has been a fun experience – its asked me to think about my final project in a visual and critical way – which as an art teacher I appreciated doing!
I think in the end the product we have created is pretty amazing. A venue for students to discuss, connect, and reflect about Art they are creating and created by other Middle School students is pretty incredible. The fact that it involves students from varied locations also adds to the exciting nature of this project. My students have been incredible during the process and I can only say how much I appreciate their help and support. I tell them this all the time. It has been a really wonderful way to connect with my students around learning with a capital ‘L’. Its really great when students in my class prompt me with “Hey Mr. McGrady – how’s your course going?” What I hope to be able to ask them some time is – “Hey how is that blog you are part of going?” as the gradual release of our Quadblogging takes hold.
My video was created using a screen capture using Quicktime and voice over of a Haiku deck of images taken by myself or searched through the image search function in Haiku. This meant that all of the images I used were either self taken or applied to CC licence which would allow for use and modification.
