Course Reflection e-Portfolio

Project 6: E-Portfolio: Assemble, Reflect, Present, Archive (Due Dec. 11 by 5 PM)

  • Gather all the projects that you did in the AED 322 course into an e-folder. Each has a different form.
  • Take digital screen captures (Command-shift-4 for screen shot of cropped sections of the screen, i.e., for WebQuest, VoiceThread, and 360-degree video, or Command-shift-3 for screenshot of the whole screen) of the projects.
  • On a word.doc with spell/grammar check enabled, clearly state the objectives of the project, what you learned, and how it is applicable in the art classroom (see reflection prompts and guiding questions below).
  • Save the word document as a pdf portfolio that you link to your blog, or set up your portfolio as a website (with a link to download your portfolio as a pdf). The website can be created first in Word.doc, PowerPoint, InDesign, Illustrator, or any website/blog composer, and placed online (e.g., in your PSU www folder or another server like Wix, Weebly, Google) and saved to pdf format. Provide a link to your portfolio in your blog.
  • Develop a portfolio that could be viewed online and also sent in digital and print format (printed pdf) to potential employers in the future.
EVALUATION: 10 points (full-credit) for the e-portfolio assignment is based on the following:
  • The e-portfolio includes snapshots of each project and clearly states the objectives of the project, what you learned, and how it is applicable in the art classroom.
  • The design uniquely and professionally conveys you as an art educator and includes your name.
  • The portfolio includes a table of contents (or menu) for each project in AED 322, although you may name the projects differently, and the course title "A ED 322: Visual Culture & Educational Technologies"

Project 1: In the CONCEPTS for Multimodal Gallery Conversation: Three Teaching Approaches

  • Learned ways to engage with contemporary art, selected a concept that you wanted to learn about and you believe is important for others to learn about too. Research and planned an approach to teach visitors to the Overlap exhibition to engage with the concept through encounters with art.
  • Edited a 360-degree video related to your selected concept.
  • Used a minimum of 10 different technologies to engage in your selected concept with 5 that you were unfamiliar with its potentials, and documented the technologies used, why you selected them, what you believe are their potential, and what you found challenging. You taught the class about one technology on Dec. 6.

    What are your reflections on what you learned (about yourself, the concept, teaching, technologies) that you might incorporate
    in your future teaching and include
    in your teaching job portfolio to convey these ideas in application for an art teaching position?

Project 2: In the E-MERGEnt>Self and LOCATING Self as Teacher projects you explored:

  • Forward-looking teaching philosophy.
  • Animation to express a concept of your teaching philosophy.
  • Landmarks/guideposts that influence your teacher identity.
  • Ideas on use of technology that align with your teaching philosophy.

How will you present your teaching philosophy and your ideas in integrating technology into the classroom in a digital portfolio?

Project 3: In the WebQuests project you were introduced to:

  • Artists who use 3D printing.
  • A participatory content-based art pedagogy and art lesson design.
  • Middle school students in rural Pennsylvania trying your art lesson.
  • Assessment of middle school learning based on the criteria of your art lesson.
What did you learn and find applicable to your future teaching from the WebQuest assignment? In your e-portfolio reflect on your art teaching methodology applied in your WebQuest, and if and how your WebQuest uses a participatory art teaching methodology that includes a way for students to interact with others and the content. Consider the reading, Gamification Pedagogy (Han, 2015) provided in Canvas.

Project 4: In the Data Visualization: Research-based Art project you were introduced to:

  • Artist who use data visualization in their art.
  • Processes and tools to create data visualization.
  • NAEA "Need to Know" webcasts
  • Adding 2D elements in 360-degree immersive enviroments

What are your reflections on what you learned that you might incorporate in your future teaching and include in your teaching job portfolio to convey these ideas in application for an art teaching position?

Project 5: In the CURATE EXHIBITION project you were introduced to:

  • VoiceThread to curate an exhibition enabling audio recorded and written commentary about the art.
  • Writing a curator statement about your exhibition that raises encompassing issues and questions that are both contemporary and enduring
  • Gallery critique processes using Find Cards for multi-age groups

What are your reflections on what you learned that you might incorporate in your future teaching and include in your teaching job portfolio to convey these ideas in application for an art teaching position?
