Gaze through a telescope out to sea, what is it you see? Ships, birds, maybe a whale? Join us in the art studio as we create scenes from our imagination.
(3 PDPs) Inspired by the installations and displays of the Art Studio, this professional development workshop will explore ways to incorporate collaborative and interactive displays into your learning environment. We will reflect on how displays can capture student learning, extend on that learning and encourage collaboration. This workshop is designed to explore frameworks connected to project-based learning, as well as give educators hands-on time with materials. The workshop will also address time-management, resourcing and cost issues as related to the creation of effective and exciting displays.
