The Art of Math Reflections

Limited Capacity seats available

By shifting our focus on teaching students what to learn, we need to look deeper into how they learn. Technology such as computers, phones, and video games are everywhere! Students love to draw, doodle, and sketch on their notes, assignments, and even on tests. Mathematics and art have an amazing connection and teaching mathematics with art can be an excellent teaching strategy. Why not implement these resources into your curriculum and allow time and space for students to interact with technology and express themselves using individual art pieces in our mathematics classrooms?

I am currently using MidSchoolMath’s grade 6 game, Ko’s Journey, as the nucleus to drive instruction. This session will demonstrate how to incorporate technology and student generated art work to display individual understanding of mathematical concepts/problems and their connections to real-word applications. While playing Ko’s Journey, students grapple with solutions and create strategies for solving problems, engage in meaningful discussions with their peers, relate each lesson to real world applications, and create individual pieces of art to display what they learned based on a teacher generated rubric.  

Join me in my session to experience the integration of art and technology that I have found to be so beneficial.

BYODPlease bring a laptop with you to this session, if possible.
