Acasa Enlisting Students to Help with Artsonia I am all about getting my students’ artwork safely (and relatively anonymously) out on my art room sites, social networks, and fundraising sites. But photographing, editing, and uploading can sometimes be a real time-vaccuum! Especially if you teach 600+ budding artists! Here is a solution to save you time by enlisting and empowering your students: Create an Upload Station! When setting up my upload station, I considered the following obstacles: What if other students accidentally delete another person’s photo? How do you know whose artwork is whose? How do you fix weird angles or glare? Is there enough time for students to do this? What about the younger grades (K-3)? In addition to a streamlined, autonomous photographing process, students can also take charge of the Artsonia importing process! The best part is that you still have the final say by previewing and editing online before the image is published to your art room’s Artsonia site. Forget those extra hours!

Dance Your Way through STEAM On Thursday, July 23rd, I have the honor of presenting again during Education Closet‘s summer Connectivity Conference. This is a conference I have presented at since it’s conception by my wonderful friend, Susan Riley. She has done such great work for teachers who strive to keep the arts and arts integration thriving in schools. My presentation is titled, “Dancing through STEAM.” The art of dance allows you to literally embody STEM concepts. Before I share a couple of examples, first let’s look at some dance concepts. For dance, I use BEST, an acronym that stands for Body, Energy, Space and Time. Briefly, Body refers to the body parts that you move, Energy is where you can consider the tension on your body as well as how you move your body, Space refers to the space you take up with your movement, including a varieties of levels from crouching low to stretching up and/or out and Time refers to your tempo or speed of movement. This is a popular video on our YouTube channel: Math Dances!
