The good news is that sub planning was somewhat easier thanks to all the Art lesson videos I have been recording with the iPad. I was schedule to have every second grade class today for 40 minutes each. So I had them all working on making their Pinwheels for Peace. I couldn't leave my computer for the sub to show the classes, so I had to download the video as an MP4, save it in Moviemaker and burn it to a DVD. This can process can be a bit time consuming but the result is enabling the sub to simply pop the DVD in the player for each class and then assist them with the Pinwheel-makin. I will let you know how it went......after tomorrow!!
In the mean time, I have been working on my presentation for the FAEA conference on October 2nd. I will be presenting for the first time with my 'Elementary Art and Technology' mini workshop. I started a powerpoint a while ago but a friend shared a Powtoon with me and I decided to play around with it and IT IS AWESOME!! I found some great FREE templates to work off of and while I will modify my powerpoint a bit, I am definitely going to use my POWTOON because it is so more more fun and engaging. Check out the two I made for art and the conference and then GET ON THERE and start playing around. I give it two thumbs up and a glittery snap! It is really cool! http://www.powtoon.com/
