Project 1: In the CONCEPTS in Art Education: Teaching, Learning & Social Media project you:

  • Researched a concept, planned two different ways to teach peers in the course to engage with the concept, and taught the 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.

    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.
  • Web 2.0 technologies as possibilities for art education.

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:

  • Real world teaching examples of Web 2.0 technologies in art education.
  • 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, if and how your WebQuest uses a participatory art teaching methodology that includes a way for students to interact with others and the content introduced in the class from the teaching projects and Chicago's methodology documented in the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection, and how your WebQuest facilitates The Four Cs of Online Participation.

Project 4: In the Exquisite Engendering Video ReMIX, MIXed Reality Art project you were introduced to:

  • SoundCloud for individual and collective analysis and interpretation
  • Remix video art
  • Exquisite Corpse Surrealist Art
  • Copyright considerations
  • Collaboration

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 "EXQUISITE ENGENDERING" 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 (4th graders and adults) 

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 6: E-Portfolio: Assemble, Reflect, Present, Archive

  • Gather all the projects that you did in the AED 322 course. Each has a different form.
  • Take digital screen captures of the projects and 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 above). Draft your statements in Word so that you can use the grammar and spell-check.
  • Create your e-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 (a 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"
