Technology Integration in the Art Room

I am lucky to work at a school with three school-wide technology integration specialists. Teachers are able to collaborate with these tech specialists to enhance the learning experience for our students. I am quite confident with my own technology skills, but I decided to team up with one of the tech specialists to create a video reflection for a recently completed Kindergarten project. I enjoyed merging ideas and learning from her expertise as we created a polished video using iMovie

I adore hearing these sweet voices as the children reflect on their artwork. It melts my heart!
