I don't want to give away all the specifics, but the activity is based on my Teaching Like an Artist articles. It will be a jam packed learning experience in a P^3BL format. Here's my outline:
- Listen to a very brief introduction to the Teaching Like an Artist principles and the activity.
- Get in groups and choose one of almost 30 digital projects (or make one up).
- Work like crazy for 45 minutes to try to finish something.
- Share your work and/or the learning.
- Reflect on what was learned.
- Leave with a ton of resources for further exploration.
While I have plenty of experience with the projects, the 75 minute format will an experiment for all involved. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone learns!
