Dorothy is surprised to see what an iPad can do….
So am I.
Always exploring educational applications with technologies, I am interested in all things related to iPads, iPods, iPhones in education and in networking with those that are using them. As an Assistant Professor at Mercyhurst College, I teach art education methods of teaching and computers for teachers as well as supervise art student teachers. Students in my classes use a lot of technology creating wikis, blogs and e-portfolios to document what they learn and research. I am also currently a doctoral candidate in instructional technology at Duquesne University.
As a facilitator in the ArtsEducator2.0 professional development project, I am very fortunate to work with many other great facilitators and arts educator participants who are interested in the role of emerging technologies in arts education. As an iPhone user I have been fascinated with the many ways you can use mobile technologies in learning. Even my pre-schooler and I use the iPhone to create collaborative art and music through various applications such as PhotoPainter, Sculptmaster3D, iWallFlower, Brushes, iDoodle2, PianoWork, and Ocarina. I am looking forward to exploring the iPad as I have been researching a lot of the apps that I plan to use.
