Digital Fluency Intensive Week 5

 Setting up a site from the beginning provided greater depth. It gave me greater understanding of how to set a site up digitally with the digital tools required. More confidence in site management and basically this will enable me to go back to my original site and tidy parts of my subject site. Adding other addresses to my blog was useful to gain feedback from collegaues.

Digital Fluency Intensive week 4

Learning to upload work onto the site, calendar, netbook and i pad.  I will adapt this more into my teaching as I teach Visual Arts and would love to know how to utilise all devices for the purpose of uploading visual images for the purpose of sharing within a classroom context.

Digital Fluency Intensive Week 3

The 3rd week of Digital Fluency Intensive, was a reflection on the following apps of quick time player, google hangouts, calendars and gmail.
Our group of three consisted of myself, Akesa and Henry, we utilised google hang out, quick time recording for our video and google calendar to communicate digitally and achieve this with the help of Gerhard and Matt.

A post by Vaifoa was the starting point of the discussion and questions were provided.

There are signs of learner agency where the student has reflected on their learning. Exploring techniques and utilising their own visual images. A wide scope for the student to choose images of their choice relating to local environment, symbols, patterns, images of family and friends.
Gathering visual images to develop leading up to final design on their woodblock. Students had to consider 3 elements of composition: Foreground, mid ground and background so that they may therefore get their perspective composition correct with their visual images.

Creativity to enable critique of artworks and understanding of why artworks empower strong sense of personal identity? To explore the imaginative mindsets of young students.

Digital Fluency Intensive Week 2

Week 2 of Digital Fluency Intensive has been really interesting. It has been so beneficial gaining understanding in using google maps, teacher dashboard and google forms. I feel more confident about using these digital tools to enhance my teaching within the classroom and my profession.
I feel confident that I can create google forms and ensure feedback is provided from students.
Also the use of excel spreadsheet to adapt towards my teaching planning and tracking student progress.
Using google maps in a different way linking it to google forms.
