Lindsay Fell does so many exciting things with her students using augmented reality — talking artwork, using apps to bring in printing presses and other techniques. If you want to understand the pedagogy and purpose of augmented reality in the classroom, this is the conversation for you.
Episode Sponsor: Project Pals has a useful classroom collaborative platform that lets you create and manage projects for your students. Right now, my students are creating and managing a project as they are creating a podcast to record powerful stories from the recent storms in our area.
Project Pals connects with Google Classroom but also lets me see detail on which students are contributing and participating. I also love the task board which is a Trello-like Kanban board that let students create, assign, and complete tasks. See my recent review of Project Pals.
I currently teach elementary art at Parkway Elementary in the Bryant School District in Arkansas. I previously taught in the regular elementary classroom for 13 years. I am a firm believer that creative classrooms can transform the way students acquire education and how they apply it in their lives. With the right mix of creativity in our classrooms we can make a better world for our students.
