Integrate Art into Academics using Augmented Reality

Tuesday, May 12th 2020, 8:00PM Eastern/ 7:00PM Central Time

Led by Natalie McKalip

Every young child knows they are an artist, and they use art to make sense of the world. We all use art to discover and create ingenious ways to problem-solve, integrate principles, and present information. Incorporating art into academics is about utilizing both the analytical and creative thought processes to develop sophisticated thinkers.

With Augmented Reality we can ignite the artist in ALL of our students.

Augmented Reality apps like 3DBear provide teachers a straightforward way to incorporated art into every-day projects to help students develop their thinking processes and foundational skills across all content areas.

In this session, Natalie McKalip will lead us through the hows and whys of integrating art into curriculum, including projects that you can try with your students tomorrow. Please come prepared with questions along with your own examples, as there will be ample time to interact with Natalie and with each other. Natalie will be using 3DBear to showcase how students can create using Augmented Reality.

STEM Challenges that Motivate Students

Wednesday, June 3rd 2020, 2:00PM Eastern/ 1:00PM Central Time

Led by Eika Johnson

How do you get kids really excited about science? Can we tap into their natural curiosity about their surroundings and their built-in drive to create and show off?

In this session, we will explore ways that students can be motivated to explore and use design thinking and problem solving techniques to complete STEM challenges. We will look at 3 STEM challenges, one using building bricks, one using computer aided design, and another using 3DBear and Augmented Reality. All 3 challenges can be adapted for varying grade levels but are ideal for the grades 4-8.
