Making images with text: Engaging visual tasks for literacy

Audience: All teachers & administrators k-11 

LEVEL: Beginner to Intermediate level technology users

In this hands-on workshop you'll do some 'hard playing' to build imagery that brings photographs, artwork and text together.  Use your iPad and a variety of materials and teaching tools to provide opportunities for students to produce creative work in any subject area.  Enhance visual literacy skills and engage with workflows that bring 'hands-on making' and digital tools together, seamlessly.  We’ll be making ‘Identi-kit selfies’, seeing spelling lists in a whole new light, labeling shapes by drawing with words, and labeling a skeleton using our own body…and more!  This practical session will exploit a flexible model that can be adapted to suit diverse age groups and learning goals, and you'll leave with the apps, ideas and confidence to implement some new projects on your return to the classroom.
