WOW! I want to do this lesson! If I was an Art Teacher, I would definitely use this lesson! I love how you integrated graphic examples, a screen cast and the rubric! These are great tools for a student who might need a lesson repeated or for a home bound student. This is a very exciting project for students and the tools used are FREE! A great way to have interaction among students too! Great Job!
The screen cast seemed to cut out on me. Not sure if this was intentional or a glitch.

This was a great lesson! The need for allowing students to experience art through various mediums is essential, and I think it is a common occurrance that most schools are limited to a set of traditional mediums. Integrating technology into the art classroom is a great and necessary step. The photography and technology lesson has great real-life meaning to students as Lisa stated. So many students are so well connected with each others' lives through social networking, and the vast majority connect through photos. Tapping into this real-world activity of students fosters great motivation on the part of the child. They are able to tie their own experiences and meaning to the new technology. I also felt the scaffolded tasks on pixir.com was a great idea. Students can experience the technology and learn it with an easier task, and build as they work through the assignments. Offering students a choice in the thrid facet of this assignment is also important and allows students to take ownership of their work.
