Integrating iPad Technology in the Classroom

The introduction of the iPad brought the power and functionality of a full-size computer system into a lightweight, user-intuitive, mobile tablet and educators have since rapidly embraced it to meet computing needs and fill specific niche roles. Discover how technology can increase engagement, allow access to vast content and provide the ability to create media to share stories with visuals and sound, and signal what lies ahead for students. Bring technology into integrated use throughout the curriculum by using tablet devices and their applications to explore the development of lessons applicable to a range of subject areas through cross-curricular sound and video projects. Consider how the iPad can be an integrated professional tool for classroom management and for creating and sharing content. Discuss the financial resources for bringing these technologies into schools.

Read the reviews:

"Phantom Effect is ripe with beauty and terror—a thrill ride with the brakes gone out. You'll only open this book once."
—Thorne and Cross, authors of "The Ghosts of Ravencrest" and "The Cliffhouse Haunting"

"A philosophically rich fearfest that's recommended for readers who prefer their titillation to include some complexity ... a perverted parable that challenges traditional moral norms and reader expectations. A thriller designed to question as much as entertain."
—Publishers Weekly

"One of the most powerful and gripping horror novels I’ve read in years. Phantom Effect establishes Aronovitz as a prominent voice in contemporary weird fiction." —S. T. Joshi

Corzo Center: Art and Tech: Communicating Your Creative Vision with Technology

Art and Tech: Communicating Your Creative Vision with Technology

By Corzo Center at the University of the Arts

THURSDAY, MARCH 17 2016 7:00 PM — 8:30 PM

Rapid growth in the technology industry has drastically impacted nearly every aspect of our lives. For some artists, this is a good reason to refocus on traditional craftsmanship and techniques. For others, the myriad of new and affordable technology is an opportunity to play, experiment, and develop new forms for creative expression that were not possible before.

The Hacktory knows new technical solutions aren't always the best option, and they are excited to help artists explore what's possible with technology to expand their creative practices in ways that create new, inspiring art.

Join The Hacktory and tech and environmental artist Leslie Birch for a discussion on how integrating tech into your artwork can help you achieve new levels of creative expression. This discussion will be followed by a tour of The Hacktory’s new workshop, tools available (electronic sewing materials, 3D printers, electronics work bench, the kinect and interactive programs built for artists), and demos of interactive software and physical hardware-based projects.

Participants will receive access to one free class at The Hacktory.

Made possible through the generous support of The Knight Foundation with support of the Center for Emerging Visual Artists.
